First Day of School!

27th August 2012

School days are here! I love and hate the first day of school. I still get so nervous stepping in front  of a new class. It helps to have my first week of clothes picked out. 🙂 So here’s a close imitation of my first-day-of-school outfit. Mine is all from Marshall’s, so unfortunately, I can’t link to the pieces, but I can tell you the shirt was $14.99, skirt $20. The bag and shoes were bought long ago. But this is pretty close (except for the insane price tags on the skirt, shoes, and bag!)

First day of school
But I also wanted to take a chance and introduce you guys to a really cool website: Donors Choose. I know you guys love books and also love putting books into the hands of those who need them. This website helps you do that. Teachers in high poverty areas explain their special projects and the books they’d like for their students, and you can help them reach their goals! So often donating can be impersonal, but this isn’t. In fact, the teachers and students post an update once the goal has been reached. Most aren’t all that far from reaching their monetary goal, so check it out and give if you can!
And whether it’s your first day of school as student or teacher, or your children are going back to school, or you just like that first-day-of-school feeling, have a great day!
