We (sort of) participated in 
International Talk Like a Pirate Day 
last week....
we only said 1 or 2 "piratey" things, 
but BB had a pirate muffin tin lunch
(he also wore his pirate hat and had his sword)
 Tuna Fish,
Pirate Booty cheddar puffs,
"Buried Treasure" {Reese's Pieces under vanilla pudding with crushed Nilla wafers on top}

and we all had a pirate inspired dinner!
 "Cannonball" subs {meatballs}

ps...YAY for finding a few of our muffin tins!
excited to have more muffin tin meals!

Teacher Hugs

BBJ took these cute little baskets to his teachers
 on the first day of school. 
It was just a little something sweet to get the year started.
I got the idea from Pinterest {of course} but changed it slightly.
I found the ABC basket at the Dollar Spot at Target. 
Since our basket didn't have apples, I changed the note to say: 
"Here's some HUGS
I got just for you
As we start our year
Full of so many fun things to do!"

Back to school, back to school...

Big Brother is heading back to school today...a new school in our new town {nope, still no new house though}!
He is super excited and can't wait to meet new friends. He is totally ready to learn and play!

I, on the other hand, am slightly more hesitant. I feel confident that we have chosen an excellent preschool for him...however I keep comparing it to our little school from last year. It was just right for him and helped him learn so much. The new school is much bigger and different...but I trust that we will be just fine and will continue to learn and grow!
