On Sunday we had our 3rd annual Back-to-school feast. Every year, usually the night before school starts, we have a little "feast" and introduce a new school year theme for our family. The boys work on the menu together and I make it "fancy". "Fancy" around here mostly consists of a table cloth and some display of our theme. Our theme this year is: Choose The Right (or CTR).
The menu consisted of hamburgers, homemade fries, fresh fruit and veggies, and raspberry lemonade (recipe to come).
I even got ambitious and made felt crowns for each of the boys. (Would anyone be interested in a simple tutorial?)
This is such a fun tradition for our family and the boys look forward to it every year.
Hopefully their enthusiasm carries throughout the school year and our theme gives us a good reminder to make good choices!
Do you have any back-to-school traditions at your home?
