Illustration Friday ~ Routine



Ahhh, summer.

As it draws to a close, we anticipate the ROUTINE that the school year brings.

With apologies, my post for this week's Illustration Friday is pulled from deep in the archives. It has been one of those crazy weeks...far from ROUTINE...with not much time for art.

Very nostalgic! Although my school days were really quite awful, I still loved the feeling of anticipation! To this day, both my husband and I look forward to September which means classes! Even at our age. Love the weekly visit to your site.

Oh, Summer Fairy. I'm sad to see you go. Your stay was much too short. Such a beautiful little girl, Nancy! Really enchanting. Kind of wish little girls still dressed this way.

Thanks for your visit and nice comment!

Great submission, Nancy. Yep, school routine begins soon.

As a kid, I loved that feeling of returning to school after the long summer (for about the first week...lol)! As a parent, by the end of the summer I couldn't WAIT for school to start again...then as the school year wore on, I couldn't WAIT to have it end...and so it goes...
eBeth (great collage!)

Love means never saying your sorry for posting an older piece... or something like that. It's great that you have such a wonderful archive to pull from during these busy busy days! I love this little gal!
