Back-To-School Traditions

It's hard to believe that the back-to-school season is already upon us. We are lucky in that Liam's new school doesn't have a required supply list. And, yet he and I love to go browsing through the section anyway. Just last week he insisted on both a green and pink roll of tape.

Who can say no when they are only 25 cents a piece?

It's also hard to believe that he's already soon to be starting his second year of school..and YES we already have some traditions. Last year Daddy went into work late so he could drop the little man off and I hope that continues to be something that we can make part of our yearly tradition.

We also start off the day with our little guy's favorite food: blueberry pancakes with lots of "dip dip" (syrup) and this year we'll be adding some of his second favorite food...BACON.

He'll get to take his new Orioles lunch box and you know we'll have to take his picture outside of school this year too.

But, my favorite part of the back-to-school season? We have a deal that if it rains on a school day we get to go out for lunch after school. It rained so much on his school days last year that we went out almost every single week. I love that it gives us something to look forward to, keeps him interested in the weather, and gives us (hopefully) several days of mamma/dude time that is just ours throughout the school year.

Do you have your own back-to-school traditions?
