The first day of school is a big deal for us every year. Sweetheart is SO excited to start the new year and loves picking out her new backpack and school supplies. She practically breaks out in a cold sweat on the school supply aisle during this time of year.
She's been lamenting the things she's missing out on not "going" to school anymore and I want her to know that homeschooling is special. I know she enjoys homeschooling (and it's not really open for discussion anyway), but it's important to her that the first day be really special. She still remembers that first day last year!
I've read some good ideas of things families do to make the first day of school special for their kiddos. (take pictures, special meal, cool activity) Now I need some ideas from you!
What do you do in your family for the first day of school?
