Creating Back to School Memories
Goosie went back to school this week... a very hot, early transition for her. I have been trying diligently to create "traditions" for us. When we lived near family, we used to go out to eat on the first day of school... parents, grandparents, great grandparents and even god parents if they were available. Now, we are here in the Midwest and I want the kids to continue to have a sense of tradition.
Goosie gets a small gift in the morning... a book and an art supply. She draws nearly every day so this is extra special for her.
The "You are Special" plate. I had made these the first year we lived here and the kids love having the charger under their plate.
The small cake... a new tradition but what a great way to reuse their birthday candles (and have an excuse to eat cake).
The poster... just a fun way to celebrate their special year!
