Here at our house it's that time of year again...the air is starting to chill just ever so slightly, the leaves have a started to yellow and bus engines are cranking for the first time since summer...BACK to SCHOOL. I am a self proclaimed dork....I admit it. I love this time of year! I love the start of school. New pencils. New pens. New notebooks. New free time because kids are into their activities. And a newly decorated seasonal tree to celebrate.
Every kid in my neighborhood probably thinks I have lost my mind! But we like to have a little fun with the back to school theme.
Mini lunch boxes from Michael's, Crayon ornaments, school bus ornaments, #1 teacher ornaments, flash cards with a hook through them and glass balls in the primary colors make up the decorations on the tree. The flags I ordered off of Amazon a couple years back. The pencil vase I made using a tin can and pack of pencils.
Tuesday the kids officially start back. This will be an exciting year since I will have a Sophomore and SENIOR!
This Labor Day weekend we have a few plans in the works. Hope you have a safe and happy holiday folks.
