Kindergarten Day

I love random holidays. I stumbled across a site that lists all kinds of weird holidays back when I was teaching junior high, and I filled up my calender with them. Lately, though, I've been out of the habit of observing these holidays, which is a shame because they give you a reason to celebrate almost every day. So today I decided to start up again with Kindergarten Day. Because I love any reason to eat macaroni and cheese, dinner became a conglomeration of all the foods typically eaten by a kindergartner. We had mac and cheese with hot dogs cut up and mixed in, carrot sticks and apple slices with peanut butter, and little peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (with crusts cut off, of course).
Here are my boys with Peter's meal (which Jonathan was deeply coveting):
Sorry, Jonathan, just some mashed up banana for dinner for you. Peter is such a good sport about all my weirdness. He ate everything without once complaining that it wasn't the most filling meal for a 6'2" man, bless him. Happy Kindergarten Day!

What a fun dinner! We actually eat that very thing for dinner on occasion (although we include pigs in a blanket...yum).

That is such a great idea Becca! I need to do better at celebrating even the small holidays and making them fun for the boys! I didn't even no there is a Kindergarten day! And you probably didn't realize--but that dinner is just preparing you for when your kids are just a little older and you do make those kind of things on a regular basis for dinner :)
