While we have several back-to-school traditions for our kids, our favorite back-to-school ritual is a quiet morning in the house for mom and dad.
For the last three years after we’ve gotten the kids off to school, we climb back into bed and have a lovely morning in our house ALONE!
We are never alone because we have no relatives close by so it’s nice to have some peace and quiet to just be together.
I almost messed things up this year because I agreed to help Lilina’s former kindergarten teacher with the new crop of itty bitties. But it worked out because Michael was still home when I returned from unpacking snacks and helping with crafts.
For the kids, I always want to have special meals and treats for them the first week. Michael has been making them eggs and bacon each morning. (We are loving the precooked bacon from Costco because you can finish it off in seconds.) I baked cookies on the first and second days of school.
What are your family’s back-to-school traditions?
