Back to School Time...

Ok I know that I have been missing for a while, I hope that I can change that soon. We are starting back to school on Monday so thing should get back to a normal routine for us. Which means more time for blogging. I am trying to set at least one day a week for it so hopefully I can stick to it.
We decided to start a new tradition with the boys. We took the boys back to school shopping tonight. I mean they do not need the standard clothes and notebooks that public school kids get, so we decided to make it fun. To start with we took them to a school supply store and let them pick out a new educational toy. Sam picked out a board game to help with his grammer skills. Gabe picked out nmonkey spelling game (that is really great because all of the pieces are hooked to it so nothing gets lost. Then of course Dh and I each found things that we thought would be fun.
Of course we had to do the clothes thing. Well as homeschoolers if we want to stay in our PJ's all day we can (not that we do it, well sometimes we do :)) Overall the kids loved the idea of a new toy and pj's to start back to school time. What are some of your back to school traditions?
