We do try and make school special in our house so that it doesn't just feel like a chore. I am not saying every day is special, but we do try and do some things to make it a little more interesting and over the years these things have become traditions. Our school traditions are:
- A Trip to Get Ice Cream When You Learn to Read! - This one makes me a little sad because both my kids can read on their own and have been for years now, but I remember the look of joy as they ordered their ice cream and told the cashier, "I can read!"
- Pictures on the First and Last Day of School - I always take a picture on the first day of school and the last day of school. I love to see how my kids have grown over the years and I love to see how they grow during each year.
|This year's pictures!|
|We started school yesterday!|
|Last year's celebration dinner!|
|Buddy and his Ultimate Feast|
|Yes, I was totally trying to steal his food.|
I am sure there are other school traditions we have that I am completely forgetting to include and my kids will let me know about it. What do you do in your home and school that your kids would call traditions? I would love to hear about them.
