I will make them something exciting before school and they will have a fun little snack after school as well.  There might be little gift bags with cute pencils and pens after school.

I break my neck to get homemade applecrisp ready for when they get off the bus. This year I ahve the added bonus of needign a birthday cake for after dinner.

As it is, my one son (who's Birthday falls that day) is trying to get me to make applecrisp on his brothers first day of college.

I have two boys, the oldest is nine and the youngest is three. So every year on the first and last day of school my oldest gets to choose anything he wants for supper. He starts planning what he wants weeks in advance :)

We go out for ice cream or frozen yogurt after school on the first and last day every year.

Not really.  I am thinking a movie night on the kindergartner's first day.  She starts on a Friday and I know she will be tired.

Movie nights aren't all that special but they love them.

Before school he gets a bunch of new clothes, shoes, haircut, lunch box, and school supplies.  I walk him in the first few days.  Short of taking off work the entire week, I don't know what else I could do to make it "special".
