Back To School 2019

Another new year, another start to a new school year.  The first few days back to school went without a hitch and everything went smoothly.  We all got up on time and got out the door in a timely fashion.  It was an almost perfect first day back, except for the fact that the kids did not want to be back at school just yer.  Understandably, most kids don't really like going back to school, especially after a super fun summer.  But such is life and since school is a part of life when you're young, you just make the most of it.  And to make the first day few days back a little more fun, I packed the kids some super yummy snacks and lunch to get excited about the school day.   Here are a few pictures of the kids' first day back to school.

 It's a pretty important year for my daughter, as she's in 6th grade this year and in Costa Rica that means it's her last year in 'middle' school.  She will be graduating at the end of the year and heading on to high school next year.  There will also be a lot of upper class-man celebrations and activities to come this year, which ill hopefully mean a fun and exciting year for her.

 And for my 5 year old, who is in kindergarten this year, this will be a pretty exciting year for him as well.  He will also be graduating at the end of year and will be heading on to 1st grade the next year so this year will be a monumental year for him as well.

Here's to a very fun, exciting, successful (and hopefully stress-free) new school year!

The Last Fun Thing

Well, it's back to school which means it's back to the grind.  I was able to fit in one last big, fun activity with the kids to the jump center trampoline park.  Then after all that jumping, we headed to one of our favorites restaurants for some super yummy food like jalepeno poppers, burgers and pizza. I feel good knowing that the kids had a wonderful fun-filled summer.
