Remember when Labor Day was officially the last day of summer vacation and school began after Labor Day? This certainly is not the norm any more in most locations in the U.S. Here my teaching friends headed back to school on August 7 with students starting a week later. I will admit that this time of year makes me thankful that I am no longer teaching. Of course, I may tutor again this year at one of our high schools. However, now instead of spending an evening grading, I can head to the nearby mountains for a few hours with my husband as we did yesterday. And of course, on a weekday morning now I can play with stamps, ink, and paper. With school on my mind lately, the latest Cameo Spotlight challenge to use numbers, led to a back-to-school card.
