This year Olivia will start kindergarten. I’ve already spent my tears on this reality.
Not only that, but my buddy, SuperCal will start pre-school. I will miss him so much.
So it has been a busy two weeks trying to get them both ready for their new adventures while taking time to enjoy my little Roo and also their last few days of freedom.
I started a tradition last year of a back to school dinner. It was a lot of fun to do last year, and so I planned another one this year. But, are you surprised, it was even BIGGER this year!
The theme for our 2011-2012 school year is “Seek Learning” from the D&C – because the first step in education is wanting to be educated. I know Olivia and Calvin both have a thirst for knowledge and a pride in their progress, so I think this will be a great focus for our year.
This year’s dinner featured:
Lime Chicken Tacos
Corn on the Cob
Raspberry Lemonade (real raspberry lemonade)
& Summer Peach Pie a’la mode.
