Celebrate School!

Every year on the first day of school, I prepare a special dinner to celebrate this big day! We enjoy my children's favorite meal (spaghetti and meatballs) and a cookie cake to end things on the right note.

My children look forward to this evening and it eases them in to school on a high note. Instead of being sad that summer is over, we get excited about a new school year. Over dinner, I try to get my children to tell me what they are looking forward to this year, even if it is P.E. or eating in the "big" cafeteria, I love hearing what they are excited about!
