Each year I let the kids choose the menu...and I throw them a fun dinner where I introduce a theme for the year, the kids each set a goal for their school year, and we just enjoy one another's company as summer comes to an end.
I always like to give the kids a little bag of goodies. When I first started this tradition, I gave them school supplies, but now that everyone's lists of supplies are so specific, and they don't usually get them until the first day, goodies it is.

This year's theme is "Be The Good". We discussed what that means and each of my kiddos gave me examples of what they can do to not just "be good" but to "be THE good".
The kiddos specifically requested Peanut Butter Ice Cream Balls for dessert. It's a favorite recipe we got from their Aunt. It's super easy to make, is delicious, and looks like you spent a lot of time on it (my favorite part.) I'll share the recipe on the blog soon.
