Tomorrow is the Big Day!

Tomorrow will be our first official day of Kindergarten!

I wanted to start a family tradition for when the kids started school, so I made her a schultute! I spent many years in Germany growing up and a tradition that they have for their child's first day of Kindergarten is to present them with a big decorated cardboard cone filled with candy, school supplies and a little toy, etc to make their first day extra special. So, to honor my time there, I thought this would be a fun thing for our family to do.

Traditionally it is just for Kindergarten, but I think we will make it a yearly tradition. To read more about the history of these cones, you can click here.

I am excited about tomorrow and will post an update at the end of the day!
