Our First Day of School



We started our new school year on Monday. We have a tradition on our first day, donuts and chocolate milk. Since daddy was not working this year we decided to make it a fun day too!

We woke up really early, got our donuts and headed off to the pond. 
I had a box with all my school planning stuff and they had fishing poles!
I wish I would have gotten a picture real early. It was so beautiful. 
The fog hung over the pond and everything was so still. So refreshing!

We laid out a blanket and ate breakfast together.

It didn't take long for the guys to get anxious to start fishing. :)


 
 The kids found as many grasshoppers and crickets as they could find to fish with.






The kids caught fish left and right. Poor daddy didn't catch anything. I think he is getting used to it....Haha. 

I sat on my blanket and made sure I had everything ready for our "second" day of school. It was a peaceful day. I really enjoyed being able to sit back and watch everyone. Usually I am so busy helping with this and that. It was one of those moments that I wish I could have froze in time.

The kids have decided that a field trip should always start our new school year. We will see. :)
