Back 2 school party
I started this tradition 2 years ago when Preston started Pre-school after reading an article in a magazine about back-2-school traditions. I want my kids to know that school is important and fun and that going back is a special time of year. What better way than to have your grandma's and papa's come over for a meal and to get to pick the menu yourself!
This was so cute, because I already had the Kindergarten 2009-2010 written on the chalkboard when Preston came home and asked, "Mom, do you want me to write my name on the chalkboard for you?" I hadn't even thought of that....what a creative kid I have!
Preston also wanted to know why his shoes were on the table. My thoughts were "why not use his school supplies as table decorations?" They were already purchased and they were the perfect solution to a school themed table!
Our Menu was MEXICAN FIESTA! Preston chose chimichangas for the main dish and I supplemented it with my families favorite mexican corn, chips and salsa and some greens! Oh, and the mini chocolate cupcakes with stars on top!
It was a great evening and I think it got everyone, including me, in the mood for school to start. I am just NOT looking forward to having to be ready to go before 7:30 a.m.! Preston is in for one long day, but I am sure he will handle it just fine!
Good Luck in Kindergarten Mr. P! I still can't believe I have a boy old enough for kindergarten! Stop growing up so fast!
Next on the list....meet baby brother!
