Back to School Dinner

Back to School

Miss G awoke Monday morning and squealed

I get to go to school today! woohooooooo!

Miss A wrote a whiteboard list of everything they needed to do.

Everyone was ready and raring to go super early.

and super excited to have Daddy come along on his twice a year visit to school :)

For the last 3 years we have held a Back To School Dinner.

This year the girls decided that it would be better to hold the dinner after the first day
(I usually hold it before)

Miss A decided on the Theme "I will go and do"

I asked them to come up with the theme after mentioning if they could think of scriptures or sayings that went with learning, kindness, love, trying, being our best etc. Past themes have been  Love One Another  and CTR - Choose the Right . "I will go and do the things which the lord commands"
I thought this a lovely theme for our schooling year. Go and Do! Go and Do!

1 Nephi 3:7
And it came to pass that I, Nephi, said unto my father: I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.

The menu was also chosen by the girls. I spent my first day of quiet after the holidays shopping and cooking all day! I will have a well deserved rest tomorrow.

Back to School Dinner Menu

Camembert, Quince paste, Wafers

French stick and Pumpkin Soup

Maple Glazed Ribs and Mash and Maple carrot, zucchini, capsicum

Apple Crumble with Icecream

A nice way to celebrate the start of another school year. Education is important.
