Tuesday's Tip - Back To School Traditions

Share

My daughter starts school next week so we're trying to do all the fun stuff we can for the next couple of weeks. Not that we haven't been partying all summer already...... ~wink~

I've been thinking about some Back To School Traditions. Last week we let the kids pick out new backpacks & lunchboxes. Are they still called lunch boxes? Anyway. My hubby takes off work the first morning of school & we all escort her in for the 1st day. And of course, pictures of her on the 1st day w/ her new backpack, etc. are usually in order as well. This year my 3 year old starts preschool for the 1st time so we'll be celebrating him too.

I have always thought it would be fun once all my kids are in school, to have a Brunch the morning school starts back for the Moms. Kind of a celebration for us Moms who are looking forward to the break...and a time for encouragement for those who are down. Course, for a lot of us, it's probably a little bit of both.

So, if you have an idea share it here in a comment! In the meantime, check these out....

Family Fun had some good ideas such as this Cake...

Taking a little walk down memory lane. Here is Gracie on her 1st day of Pre-K....

And last year for Kindergarten. Can you tell she was not in the mood to have her picture taken that day? LOL....
We'll miss sleeping in, but we are getting excited for a new year & a new school!
