back to school dinner

 We had our little back to school dinner tonight after we went and toured the new school and met the teachers. 

We had the requested bread bowls and fruit salad while we talked about our theme for this year- Do Your Best! Things don't have to be perfect, and it's not worth getting mad when you can't do it exactly right the first time. Just do the best you can.

Afterwards Adam gave the boys blessings- the boys were so handsome listening to the prayers. Even little Linc hopped up on the chair for his and folded his arms! It melted my heart!

After the blessings we had Dunford donuts and went over the school rules, and then it was early bedtime! Yay for bedtime!!

I love this idea. I love that you are so consistent in doing it. I think we'll do it before Edmond starts Joy School next week.
