|Loved the colorful decor!|
I don't know about you, but I'm realizing that fall is in deed in the air and with that comes back to school! Josh's family has a long line of teachers and so back to school season has special meaning.
In order to get the kids excited about jumping back into school mode, Josh's aunt Clarice planned our first ever back to school party! She had heard how much Selah loves a good party and Selah counted down the hours to this really fun shindig!
If you are looking for a way to get your kids excited about school as they wave good-bye to slow summer days then you should look into throwing your own back to school party! Here is what ours looked like:
First, go to your local school supply store and create decorations like Aunt Clarice - she had a garland made out of flash cards, apples and name cards at every one's plate! And each kid had their own special bin filled with markers, colored pencils, composition books and more!
Not only did she have thoughtful decor and gifts, she also planned out fun activities for our party! First off, we had some school riddles to solve. Josh read out the riddle and the kids did a great job of getting the right answers! One example was, "Why was the math book so sad?" The answer "It has a lot of problems!" I found out kids LOVE these silly questions!

|Levi is first to answer the question: "How does the bumble bee get to school?" The answer: "He rides the BUZZ!"|
|Selah tried answering a couple of the riddles too!|
Oh, and then we sat down to some delicious treats! Brownies, peach crisp, ice cream and colorful straws made this a party Selah will never forget!
|Can you tell that this is a happy kid?|

|I loved the attention to detail!|
Thank you Aunt Clarice!
