I remember growing up that my mom would always take off from work on school registration day. We would register then she would take us out to lunch and then we would go pick out our school supplies. And even though it wasn’t anything fancy, it was a tradition that we looked forward to each year.
I don’t really think that I have developed a back-to-school or first-day-of-school tradition with my kids so I am looking for ideas of ways to make the first day back to school very special.
I am looking for ideas for a special breakfast. (but it’s always hectic and hard to get up the first morning so it would need to be easy).
Do you have a special lunch tradition — like going to school for lunch? Or do you send special food or notes in?
What about immediately after school? A special activity or treat?
Or how about dinner?
I am so sad about the summer ending and I do want to start their school year on a cheerful, happy note and make it special. I would appreciate any ideas you guys have and would love to hear about all of your traditions.
