First Day Traditions

We had our first day of the new school year about 2 weeks ago. I hope to get the pictures of our annual Back-to-School Treasure Hunt up soon. In the meantime here are photos of our traditional Walk-to-School we do every year on the first day. Daddy always leads them and it's something they look forward to. This was Princess' first year walking with a backpack on. Isn't she precious? I can't believe how quickly all our children are growing up.
Off they go!
Crossing the Street
It was a short walk this year as the heat index was 106.
Here they come!
Up the driveway & on their way to greet their teacher!
Soon after we had our special First-Day-of-School meal. This year it was a picnic lunch. Oh, so yummy! Hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, beans, corn on the cob & Kool-aid. A fun way to start off our 11th year! =0)

I love seeing your "First Day of School" tradition. I have enjoyed it ever since I have begun reading your blog. Your little one is just darling with her little backpack on. Have a wonderful new homeschool year!
