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.

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