This year I planned a little surprise for the first day of school. The first day can be a struggle around here especially when summer seems to go by too fast. We also started before the public school which really bothered the teen.
I made a few little decorations for the schoolroom and gave each of the kids a little treat - some gum and suckers.
As you can see, the younger kids were ready and Bailee is still asleep.
For lunch we had a special drink.
Here in the LC valley we have a fast food place called Sharp's. At Sharp's, you can get one of my favorite beverages - Scotch n' Soda. No, this is not alcoholic. It is made from Sprite, vanilla syrup, and a slice of lemon. Sadly, these can be a spendy drink for six, so sometime this summer I decided to try and make them myself. They turned out great and the kids have asked for them several times.
Is anyone else in shock over the fact that Bailee is a junior? Where did the time go?
