Back to school feast

I have been inspired by NieNie's back to school feast for years now and this year we finally got around to doing it… barely! I bought crowns for the girls and made stapled crowns for the boys, like NieNie. We had fondue for dinner, which was actually Addie's idea when she found a closed fondue set I've had for years. We had it on the feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary and chose one of her titles from the litany instead of the "family theme" We've actually been asking for Mary, Seat of Wisdom's intercession for a while now when we agonize over/ponder WHAT THE HECK TO DO about our kids' education. So it was fitting. 

We did those fun interviews and I have them "schultutes", which are school supplies wrapped up in a tube shape… a german tradition methinks. It was basically socks and pencils and they were sooooooo happy. Plus, they went to bed late and ate gummy bears. Practically the best day of their little lives. I hope we will be able to repeat it again next year and compare our pictures!
