First Day of School Breakfast Picnic


This could not have been more simple and pared down - store bought donuts, paper scraps taped to twine and flowers cut from the back yard. We feasted on yummy donuts and on God's Word. Proverbs 4 is a beautiful reading for the First Day of School!

I had hoped to do this outside but rain kept us cozy in the house and we had just as much fun. 



Grainy photos and wiggly people, it was still beautiful and slow and celebratory of returning to an attitude of learning.

Aside from the donuts, I bought one tiny spool of measuring tape fabric ribbon on the Target Dollar Spot!

How cute! I actually bought a spool of that ribbon for you, too! Haha! It was supposed to go in your Summer box, which will probably just turn into a Fall box. :)
