Make a Day of It

To celebrate "back to school" time at our house each of our three children get to pick one day in mid-August to "Make a Day of It." On that day, I spend a special day with the child. We go out for a nice breakfast and then head for the mall. We shop for new school clothes and shoes. We make a trip to a local discount store and stock up on school supplies and a new backpack. If we have extra time, we might stop off for ice cream or a short trip to the video arcade. After we’re done shopping, we go home and order out for pizza or Chinese. We unwrap all the new pencils and spiffy notebooks and pack the backpack. Sometime after dinner, my husband comes home with the rest of the kids and we have a fashion show featuring all the new back-to-school gear. It’s a day that we look forward to every school year.
