This year we headed up to the glorious mountains for the back to school feast. It is a celebration for the ending of summer and beginning of another school year. My sister, Camille, and Collin helped put it together for our kids. Camille made the yummy caramel and white chocolate cinnamon apples as well as a delicious quinoa + mango salad. I pulled together some crowns and special details. Before hand, we chose a theme for the year and shared it with them. During the feast we also talk about their excitement and concerns. Making new friends and how to be a good student. My great grandma Charlotte happened to be here visiting from San Diego and I saw her watching with wide eyes as we carried the chairs and table to our perfect spot. Then I had to laugh and holler to her, “Grandma, I promise I’m not crazy.” Actually we kind of are. But it was memorable and that’s what we were striving for. A million giggles, many clinks of their bottles with a loud “Cheers!” through out the night and a couple hilarious quotes proved the night to be a success.
Matthew: “We should do this more often…”
Quincey: “This is the best day of my life!” haha Mostly because there was an unusual treat of cream soda involved. Not to mention, a tower of R A D donuts.
“And now,” cried Max, “let the wild rumpus start!”

Here’s to another year, my sweet girls! I am so proud of you. How brave you face the up-coming months. How set your eyes are on the goal of being a friend to others and striving with all your might to grow and learn. Love you, Momma!
