I can't believe the emotions this post brings. As I was searching through old posts to share some pictures from our first day traditions, it just hit again how fast my children are growing. It's also my birthday today so I'm growing too. :)
Our main traditions in our homeschool are on the first day. We call them starting back to school with the 3C's and a P - Coffee, Candy, Crayola and Pajamas. Who needs the 3R's when you have the 3C's? Only kidding - kinda. We also start back with a staggered slow start not beginning every subject at once. I usually leave them a little note too!
We also always watch and have a Polar Express party at Christmas time. It's become a lot more laid back over the years but we still enjoy our hot chocolate, popcorn, book, and movie.
