The 2011-2012 school year started yesterday for our kids. Inspired by different back to school parties in Blogland, I thought it would be nice to hold a Back To School breakfast for our family and a few of our neighbors and their kids, a couple of days before school started. We had pancakes, bacon, french bread, fruit, and various drinks. It was nothing fancy, but everybody had an enjoyable time.
I decorated with various school inspired items to set the right back to school mood for the kids. Hopefully, we'll do this every year, God willing.

After breakfast, we took the kids outside for pictures. I used some awesome grade printables from
Iheartnaptime, they are available for grades pre-k to 12th grade. They are just fabulous!. It's awesome when people share their creations with others. I'm thinking about using them for the next few years. Hopefully the kids will cooperate.
It would be so cool to have a kid from each grade represented, I'll keep that in mind for next year!
Here are the real first day of school pictures:
Best of luck to my munchkins.
