Last Day of Summer & Back to School Feast

Today was the last day of Summer, the night before our first day of school. And we went and celebrated it up right!

Headed out for back-to-school breakfast with Daddy

a little mid-morning chores

mid-day swim with John, Johnny, and our neighbors

And, in keeping with tradition, we feted our little schoolchildren with a Back to School Feast. This year's theme: Wisdom.

The guests of honor arrive, dressed for the occasion

party decor & special crowns

Cheers! Drinking "smartie pants smoothies" (power-packed with brain-boosting antioxidants)

And I quote, "I think I'm getting smarter already!" She cracks me up.

Our special verses for the evening

Dinner: smoothies, brain cell salad (go leafy greens!), brain booster brown rice (healthy whole grains), salmon with peach-tomato salsa (omega-3 fatty acids and more antioxidants), and chocolate milkshakes (cacao helps with concentration). Mama did her research for this meal. :)

Sam enjoyed the smoothie. I think he drank four cups and did "cheers!" approximately 20 times.

my pre-K girl!


Serious shake drinker

Stay tuned for back-to-school pictures of Maddie tomorrow, and Sam on Wednesday.

Hooray for Fall!
