Old school

Recommended Posts

Do they still do that? I always looked through the lost and found in high school and took a book if I had that class,then I would have a duplicate to leave at home and reduce the amount of books I carried home. I must have looked so cool,not bringing books home ever.

My kids don't have as many books, I think that is slowly going away. But the few they do are freaking huge. Kill yourself carrying a couple of them lol. I did do the old paper bag on a few of them!!

My daughter is in middle school. The books are huge and heavy. However, most of her homework is done on an iPad. 


Genesis 9:1-3 .....The fear and dread of you will fall upon all of the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air, upon every creature that moves along the ground, and upon all the fish of the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that moves will be food for you.....

The Kindle just doesn't work right and   I have decided not to feed the bullies and distracters...it's call the ignore feature. They only have power when fed.

They now have these stretchy book socks things because folding and taping paper is way too challenging - not sure if that’s for the parents or the kids but too challenging nonetheless. Book socks are also recyclable and can be reused every year (but they are not!) so that’s great for the planet (as they dump thousands of plastic bottles in thrash because tap water is yucky?)
Please don’t post school-related items on a Friday- after a week of MS kids I sound like I hate all things kids. Ask me this question after a full day sit tomorrow and I may not be so cynical
