As I mentioned yesterday, our school mornings are pretty early (we leave by 7 am) and so the prospect of a fun, special breakfast on the first day of school was out of the question. Instead, I opted to put together a little "Back to School Brinner" (breakfast for dinner) on the night before the first day :)
I wasn't planning on decorations or anything like that until I was at the grocery store and saw the folders on sale for 15 cents.
I laid them open on the table, wrote everyones names in the corner and called it a day.
The folder was even a cute little pocket to hold our napkins and silverware.
I kept the menu simple and easy. I made Shay's sausage balls, set out some fruit and yogurt and picked up some cinnamon rolls from the grocery store.
EASY and Luke dubbed it "the fanciest dinner we've ever eaten" ;) hahaha
We prayed for Luke and Mason, their teachers, classmates and the school. We talked about what they were excited and nervous about and what they hope to learn this year.
Luke told Mason ALL about what happens in Kindergarten and Mason ate up all of the advice ;)
It was such a sweet way to usher in the school year without the pressure of having to do it the morning of.
If I had been on my "a-game" I would have made this printable, framed it and set it out on the table... I wasn't prepared, but you could be ;) hahaha
You can right click on either of the images below (the breakfast one is for all of you who have time to actually do a first day breakfast), save it and then print it yourself or upload it to a photo printing service (like Walgreens or Sams) and have it printed.
Enjoy, friends!!! And I'd love for you to send me a picture of your sign in action if you end up using it :) Happy Wednesday!!!
