This print is so meta--I LOVE IT.
Well, Internets, I can't say whether or not this is true in your neck of the woods, but as far this area of the Hoosier State is concerned, it's that time of year again--it's time for all the kids to go back to school. Or, as Staples once described it in its infamous commercial, The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. Either way, summer vacation has come to an end, and it's time once more to reacquaint ourselves with the school bus schedule (particularly if you have to make your morning commute while they're making pickups in your neighborhood, but it goes without saying that said info is also important if you have munchkins who need to get on the aforementioned bus.)
And seeing as it's back-to-school time, it only makes sense that I do a post based on that fruit most closely associated with academia: the apple. Because as long as teachers keep getting apple-themed gifts, apples are always going to be associated with school. ALWAYS.
...And yet, I decided to kick this post off with this upcycled kid's hat, featuring an apple tree. Which isn't really associated with schooling of any kind that I know of. I mean, there's the whole "Tree of Knowledge" thing, but seeing as nobody's been able to agree what that tree was supposed to be (I've heard everything from bananas to figs,) I don't think it counts. But hey--apples!
These next two apple fascinators come from the same store, but I think they're both worth showing. And I think you'll agree.
See what I mean? They were just too cute to choose between. It's like trying to choose between a Red Delicious and Granny Smith. They're just so tasty!
And lastly, just because anthropomorphic apples are awesome, here's a happy apple headband:
Well, if you're going to have an apple headband, it should definitely be a happy one, I always say.
So for all those who are heading back to school, here's wishing you a good first day. And for all those parents whose kids are heading back to school, try not to celebrate too obviously, will you?
And on that note, see you Wednesday!
