Bouquet of Sharpened Pencils

"Don't you love New York in the Fall?
It makes me want to buy school supplies."
(Joe Fox in You've Got Mail)
Gaaawww I love this movie.  It never gets old.
As we've been scrambling around these last couple of weeks buying back to school items, this movie has been playing over and over in my mind.  I want to say I've watched this movie at least a hundred times over the years but I don't know if that's true.   It's definitely been several, several times.

 We only have one child left in high school.  Today is the first day of her junior year.  It's a little sad that the summer break is over but it's also a little exciting to start a new school year.  

She got her license over the summer and drove herself to school this morning.  She's getting all grown up and independent.  I awoke early this morning worrying about the school traffic.  I knew it would be crazy this morning and this being her first day to drive among the early morning madness.  She had a little anxiety as well but she texted me a little before eight and said she made it alright.  

I think I'll pop in my favorite movie today.  I'll let it play in the background while I do my household chores.  She took my car to school so it's not like I can go anywhere anyway.
I might as well enjoy it.
