Back to School Traditions

Happy Tuesday, y'all! Today I'm linking up with Andrea for Show & Tell Tuesday! 

Today we're sharing our favorite back to school traditions.  Although Jon & I don't have any little ones of our own to send back to school this year I thought I would share some of my favorites from this time of year.:)

As silly as it seems, I remember a fresh box of crayons being a huge deal to me.  They always get so broken and worn down throughout the school year, and a new, sharpened box = my fav as a kid.

Hi-C Juice Boxes
I'm not even sure why these were such a big deal, but I thought that a box of juice with a straw was the most legitimate thing ever.

Personalized L.L. Bean Backpacks
I feel like everyone has loyalty to either L.L Bean or Lands End for these. My family was an L.L. Bean family for whatever reason.  We didn't get these backpacks new every year in our house, but it was a tremendous decision to pick the fabric color/print and the color/style of your font.

Little Debbie Cakes
Okay, so reflecting on this I'm realizing that my sugar addiction started at a very young age.  Little Debbie's are probably not what I'd recommend as a healthy option, but they were in fact a staple in my school lunch.

What were some of your favorite things heading back to school?
