It’s Workin’ It Wednesday!
The second Wednesday of every month, Erika and I host a link up where we talk about how we’re workin’ it in certain areas of our life (and then ask you to share your advice/tips/tricks on the subject too).
So far this year, we’ve discussed these topics:
January: Keeping our New Year’s Goals
February: Keeping our marriages strong
March: Balancing work and home life
April: Spring cleaning
May: Planning/prepping for your summer vacation
July: What you do on your weekends
Back to school!
This was Ashby last year on the first day of school right after we dropped off the big kids and were walking out. This is how I feel right this second.
To be fair, as much as I love summer break and the relaxed time with my family, I do already have my calendar marked with the day that I’m going to decorate for fall…so, that always cheers me up 🙂 .
Most of the kids in Texas are headed back next week or the week after that…but here in McKinney, we have a weird schedule this year and we don’t go back until the 28th. So, even though we still have a few more weeks, I know a lot of other people who are going back really soon, so today’s post is right on target!
Over the years, we have developed a few back to school traditions and routines. These are things my kiddos look forward to all year long! I’m going to share ours and then I hope you comment and share yours too! Here we go…
Ah! First day of kindergarten and first grade in August 2015.
After school, we always have their favorite cookies waiting and we sit at the bar and talk about their first day.
Also on the first day of school, after drop off, many of the moms and younger siblings meet up for breakfast at our favorite local diner…
…because coffee and pancakes helps us get out of that melancholy first day of school mood 🙂 .
Also, you can find my First Day of School Menu HERE. It’s a menu mom’s will love to make and kids will love to eat!
And here’s my Back to School Pinterest board…
