It is tradition that the youngest goes first. Bugs was the first to go. Here he is getting his first clue from Daddy.
He dived under the couch to find his next clue.
This was cute. He knew it was the sink but for some reason looked everywhere on it but the faucet. It took him a good minute or two before he noticed the clue. Lol!
Found it!The next clue sent him running outside.
Handing it for Daddy to read
He found his treasure!
Now for the best part! Opening it up!
He has lots of things to keep him entertained during school time.
Next is Elvis' turn!
First to the pantry!
And then to Daddy's shed.
This year he was able to read his own clues making it even more of an adventure.
A chilly treasure is found in the chest freezer. =0)
(P.S. He has outgrown Diego but likes his backpack b/c it is large. Plus he doesn't care too much what's on the pack as he's not into whatever is the latest fad. He just likes that it holds his stuff. I love that!)
Unpacking his new school things.
Looking through his new pencil box.
Her hunt began in the bathroom. Daddy is so silly! Lol!
Next to shed #2
There it is!
Elvis shows us all his new school things.
Bugs is very happy with his Transformer ring.
This was a fun surprise for Boo.
A closer look at Elvis' treasures.
This year we added something new. A bin of treasures for all of them to share. I wanted to take out some of the things we had put away & forgotten about. Plus I wanted to add some new things I bought for this year. Doing the workboxes I hope to have more opportunities to use these.
A closer look.
Up close look at the new-to-us games.
As you can see she is a big fan of Hannah Montana.
(I was thrilled to find them for 50 cents on clearance at the Party Store.)
These devotions I bought back at Christmas but have yet to be used. Frankly I think we forgot about them once they were shelved. But now they are back and ready to be read!
The kids insisted on doing their traditional walk to school. It kind of cracked me up since it was evening & we weren't starting school until the next morning. But it also touched my heart as I realized how much our kids enjoy our simple traditions.
Sky, the cat, followed them. Too cute!
Here they come marching home.
Our traditional annual picture on the front steps.
I didn't place any of their curriculum in their backpacks this year. There simply wasn't any room! I might take pics of it later in case anyone is curious.
The kids were very happy with all their new school treasures. I love having these fun traditions.
