We usually have school at the park the first day back...the joy of homeschooling!

No, never thought about doing something. Maybe I will have some brownies waiting for my 7yr old when he comes home.

We have quite a few traditions, I guess. 

I make a special treat for his lunch on the first day, and when I'm making the bread for the sandwiches, I make a loaf of rainbow bread.

We also go out after school with my niece (ds and niece go to the same school) to get a treat (a cupcake from our favorite shop). This year, we're surprising Ds with tickets to go see the new Percy Jackson movie, and dinner at his favorite restaurant.

I write her a special note for her lunchbox and usually put  a treat in as well.

I make a gift basket with supplies from Target/Staples for the teacher.

I take pictures of my daughter and leave a love note in her lunchbox with a pic of us!

We take pictures and maybe a special snack after school.

We always do something to celebrate the first and last days.  It might be a gift, or money towards something they can purchase on their own. It might be all of us going out to a movie or something like that.

Nothing like getting your hopes dashed and your dreams trampled all over. I'm sure some miserable person is quite pleased to hear about that.

That's a great idea! I'll have to do that for ds as well.
