How about some fun before the classes start?

"School days, school days

Dear old golden rule days

Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic

Taught to the tune of the hickory stick"

(Music by Gus Edwards |  Lyrics by Will D. Cobb (1907)

It is tax free weekend here.
The stores will be filled with back to school shoppers.
I'm staying home!

Thank you to Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.

August Break 2012

Wishing YOU well and much joy.

Love the pic, jungle gyms and monkey bars, now the kids have to wear helments or can't play on them at all. No stores for me either,yippee! xox

What a darling postcard! lol Reminds me of myself and my brothers and sisters when we were little.

I had such a great childhood--the joy of those days seems reflected in this wonderful picture.

Have a great weekend and Happy PFF!

What a cute postcard, Snap - reminds me of my own girlhood. My Grands are starting school Monday - soon our town will be quiet again because most of the tourists have gone home. I can hardly believe summer will soon be over.

That photo just goes to show that some things don't change with time. :)

Oh the good old days... when we played outdoors instead of inside with our electronics :)
