Back to School Dinner……

This weekend we had our family’s annual Back to School Dinner Celebration.  It was so fun….and I try to surprise everyone each year with something a little different.

Last year we had to eat leftover salad in the dark because we had an extra dinner guest…..the 150 foot oak tree that was on the house! ha! We still had fun, though. Here’s the link to the post about last year’s dinner celebration.

This year we had electricity! We hung paper airplanes in the doorways, and from the dining room light fixture.

We decorated the table with all kinds of school supplies vintage and new……

Everyone received coupons and fun little treats to start the year off…..

This is also the night each year that we sign home school contracts for the year. 🙂 {We  always have a contract listing necessary commitment, expectations, and any consequences of not meeting them.}

Do you celebrate going back to school in any way? Does your family have any neat traditions for starting the school off in a fun way?
