I actually wanted to do a "Not-Back-to-School" day at the park about a week after PS opens. I had it all planned out - potluck, also supplying maybe pizzas and mexican, potato sack races, a bounce house, water balloons, some other fun things. A "free" swap of materials. But I tried for a smaller version last year and only one other person even signed up. I bet if someone else planned it they'd be all over it. I don't get it, so the idea lives on in my mind lol.

We're actually going to be out of town the week school opens here (we've been doing actual school for about 4 weeks now) so that will be a celebration all by itself!

I have been thinking about doing something special when the other kids go back to school.  We can't do it the first day of school because it is only a half day so we wouldn't have time.  I am thinking the second day of PS for the kids I watch, D and I will celebrate him NOT going.  We already started our school year so getting a day off while they are in school will make D happy.

I saw all kind of cute ideas on Pinterest. I just haven't figured what I want to do for us yet.

Not really. We call what we do "school", so it wouldn't really work, lol. I do plan to go out and visit some places that are generally too crowded during the summer, on the day the public school kids go back. We're starting at home about a week and a half prior to them, so we can take a day off if we want :)

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff:  we're Catholic, we're conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

We're going to a water park on the first day of school. It's been crazy busy there and I promised we'd go when most kids are in school. Last year one of my homeschool groups had a Not Back to School picnic, but I'm not sure if they're doing anything.

I don't have a board or have pinned anything specific yet. This is the link that started off all the ideas though. I thought the school themed dinner was a neat idea.

Here are some specific to the dinner idea:

Link 2

Link 3

Link 4 I have always thought the cake would be so cute, but will most likely never happen, lol.

Our homeschool group we are part of is doing an end of summer pool party, a family dance, senior party, etc.  There is a lot going on with the group.  

I like the idea of a Not-back-to-school party.  And I completely feel your pain, LostTheSlipper.  That tends to by my luck as well.
