Beeswax and pigment
Rainbows and joy in a box
They smell of childhood
Last year, before the beginning of the school calendar, my husband’s office collected supplies for local schools. We filled a shopping bag with notebook paper, pencils and pens, folders and binders. The Mister also found my nearly new 64-count box of Crayola™ crayons and tossed that in too. I couldn’t bring myself to tell him that the crayons were mine… there were kids who couldn’t afford to buy supplies… so, on into the bag they went.
Florida’s tax-free back-to-school shopping is this weekend. Office supplies, clothing and shoes are exempt up to a certain amount. I see a new box of crayons in my future. This time, I’m labeling them with my name.
