First Day of School Fairy

I have decided to start a new start of school tradition. The night before the first day of school, we will have a little visitor called, 'The first day of school fairy'. Lane totally ratted me out to the boys so they have a pretty good idea that it wasn't a fairy who put goodies in their backpacks. How rude! ;) That's okay, it's still going to be titled and gifted from 'The first day of school fairy!'
Porter and Grady put their backpacks outside their door to awaken to a full backpack of fun filled items!

Porter's loot.

Smiling...because that is what I have taught him since out of the womb.

Grady's loot.

Enjoying checking out his surprises. I had to make this truly exciting and so I went again my better judgment and put mini marshmallows in his new snack cup. Guaranteed, he loved it!

Porter's first interview with his teacher a few days before school.

This is what we brought her as a ice breaker-get to know you-my child is the coolest, treat. "With you as my teacher, I am going to be one smart cookie!"

And here it is! The grande finale! Porter's first day of school with year 2 of brotherly goodbyes and loves. They were both having excellent hair days as well. I know I will enjoy pictures like these more with each wrinkle I get. Love savoring my crazy dudes.

You are the queen of the cute teacher gift/Valentine/treat bag etc! Love it! And I can't wait to show Tim the First Day of School Fairy! He always gives me a hard time about these extra "nocturnal visitors" I come up I can show him it's in a woman's blood!

Hahah! Yes, there should be a mythical creature for every occasion leaving treats and toys. It just never gets old. I can't wait to get my toothfairy gig on. ;) Tim should buy you a special wand.

You are such a fun mommy! I wish I had done the school fairy that would have been awesome! There weren't blogs when London was little, in my defense or pinterest! Iwill be an awesome grandma one day!

I love all these cute ideas! I also love how you included the little Gradesters and got him some back to school stuff too. I bet he is so excited to go to school one day too, like his big brother :-) I miss these little guys...or I should say big guys. They are growing up too fast. Kiss them and squeeze them for me :-)
