Back-to-School :: 2020-2021

"The spirit of adventure was rising in them all, and no one really wanted to be back at school." - Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis

... but they were all ready for their back to school treats! 

I was questioning my younger self yesterday, as I assembled this year’s Back-to-School Schultütes... “WHY did I start these little annual traditions all those years ago?!?” I just don’t have the energy I had when I was younger... However they really didn’t take that long to assemble, and the smiles on all my children’s faces made it worth the extra effort!

I'm in love with our new school supplies from OOLY. I happened to discover them at my favorite local store, Pilgrim's Market in Coeur d'Alene, and had to get some for this year's Schultütes.



I had to get her the little fox... 
Last week she chased off a coyote, saving all but one of our chickens. 

We also celebrated with Birthday Cake for our Blessed Mother ♥

I also had a lovely new picture book for my children...

Update: For all those who are curios, the book, under the rosary, is my Roman Catholic Daily Missal (1962)
