Feeling the need to celebrate your sweet little angel’s return to that fabulous destination they call “School”? The sweet smell of chalk and erasers, the roar and fumes of the school bus, the laughter and tears of tots and adults alike, and then that sudden complete silence that sweeps over the house when they are gone.  By now we hope, your daily stalking of the school bus has ended, your tears have dimished(well at least to just watering eyes) and you have ruled out homeschooling as a viable option. Chin UP! It’s time to celebrate each and every one of the sweet successes – big and little.

The Pencil Eraser drink is a great way to celebrate all your achievements — for kids and parents alike — utmost, the return of a SCHEDULE. Quench your thirst with fresh strawberry and lemon Pencil Erasers.
