Happy Tuesday! Todays our last day together before school starts so we are having all the feelings over here. Last night was Averys open house and tonight is Ellies. Backpacks are packed, water bottles are filled, and ready or not it’s happening. We started a “back to school brinner” and have made it a tradition so I’m sharing that today, along with the girls’ back to school interviews.
I tried to use things we already had on the table but also things that were “back to school” like. I grabbed an apple candle from T.J. Maxx, and this table runner from Amazon. But we already had the luminary thing, and the basket and apples from years past.
The girls found out their teachers the morning we had this planned, so it worked out well. We just picked a day that would work the week before back to school (the week of gets a bit crazy) and went with it. This has become a fun tradition, and we are eating dinner every night anyway, so we are happy we’ve started a special dinner to talk about the school year coming up, what we are excited about for the year, the kids’ goals, etc. We keep the menu easy with Biscuits and Gravy, Bacon or Sausage, yogurt, fruit and maybe a chocolate chip muffin;)
I didn’t get many pictures, but I used fun scrapbook paper as placemats and “fancy” plastic cups for our drinks.
Let me know what back to school traditions your family has! I would love to hear about them.
I always ask the girls’ the same questions every year before school starts and here are their answers.
