Just for fun, I wanted to include some of the answers you all gave to the question:
What is your favorite back to school ritual?
"...I'm gonna be a total dweeb and say getting my school stationery supplies. New books, pens, pencils, erasers... yeah, I'm a dork."
(Side note: she was one of many who said the same thing, so this is totally NOT dorky at all!)
"Would it count if I also told you I have a strange obsession of timetables? My fave part of the first day back is getting and colour coding my college timetable..."
"My favorite back to school ritual is shopping for a new outfit and school supplies. At least if I have a few cute clothes and folders, pens, etc then I'm at least a little more good with going back."

"So like almost everyone else, I am a huge dork and always loved getting new school supplies. I still love school supplies and I'm not even in school anymore! Haha. I also just love the feeling of being organized at the very beginning of the school year, although usually went away within the first couple of weeks. :P"
"Shopping for school supplies. I loved it when my mom took me to the store and I got to pick out a new bag, new notebooks, pens, pencils, folders, school books, ... It all smelled so new. I love that kind of smell. :D"
"Even though it's been a while since I've been in school the sight of school buses, even though they're empty, beginning to roll around in August makes me queasy! I used to love shopping for new school supplies, though."
"Well I don't really have a ritual for going back to school except enjoying the last weekend by sleeping in and staying in my PJ's the whole day! :D"
"Ritual? I used to pray to be in the same class as my friends, does that counts? xD"
"Since it has been so long since I have been in school this is more from a mom's perspective...my favorite back to school activity is meeting the teachers!"
