Well, we made it!! The first week of school has come to an end. I am so proud of all three kiddos...each morning they woke up eager and excited about school. Next week may be a different story ;)
So to celebrate our first week of school, we had a pizza and movie party!!
While all the boys went to buy a small fishing boat (a treat by itself), Memphis Belle and I blew up balloons. I always try to keep a helium tank in the house for special occasions like birthdays, spur-of-the-moment parties, etc. I usually buy this tank from our local Dollar General.
We ordered pizza and decorated the table. We wanted to surprise the boys when they came home. :)
And they were thrilled! This was a well-deserved treat for them, and one that I (as their mom and teacher) was honored to do for them.
After dinner, it was movie time. They chose Bob the Builder: The Big Dino Dig. It was a perfect combination of the boys' favorite things...construction trucks and dinosaurs.
We love celebrations. We find joy in celebrating the big milestones in life along with the everyday events.
"Celebrate, good times, come on! It's a celebration!"
