Back to School Ideas (Pins to Admire and Inspire)

I've always looked at Labor Day as the last day of summer, even though I think it's truly September 22nd. Maybe it's because I was raised with the strict fashion guidelines of "no white shoes after Labor Day." Either way, summer is ending for many of us with kids going back to preschool and big kid school. In honor of Michaela Byrd going to meet her new preschool teachers at Orientation this morning, I thought I'd share some of the fab Back-to-School Ideas I've been Pinning like crazy.
