A List Maker's Life: Happy School Years Eve

Happy School Years Eve

After extra snuggles in momma's bed to celebrate our last morning of sleeping in, our Happy School Years Eve banner greeted us at breakfast.
We relaxed the day away with Grandma and Grandpa before returning home for a fresh back to school haircut and a backpack full of school supply surprises.
 
Now, my soon to be first grader is tucked in bed with visions of cafeteria lunch and two recesses dancing in his head. 
His dad and I just put the final touches on the traditional Back to School breakfast table.  Where early tomorrow morning we will all talk about hopes, wishes, and dreams for a new school year while enjoying eggs and waffles.
Where we will read The Pirates Guide to First Grade, add some adorable little school themed erasers to his collection, and maybe even eat a bite or two of these cute candy apples.
Before heading off into this grand new adventure!
