Back to School Traditions #BLINQcontest

This is a sponsored post.

After a busy summer, we are winding down and getting ready to start the school year.

Like other special occasions, we have our own set of traditions, from a nice breakfast, to pictures at the bus stop, to a note in the kid’s lunch boxes.  After school, we head out to get some ice cream so the kids can relax and tell me about their first day of school.


Join BLINQ in sharing your favorite back to school tradition to win a $50 gift code!

    I have to enter this! We have a few traditions that are never allowed to fall by the wayside, and $50 is a nice amount for buying back to school stuff.

    Our favorite back to school tradition takes place on the first day of school – Meet the Teacher Night. After the kids see their classrooms and meet their teachers we go out together as a family for a nice dinner.

    I am so not looking forward to back to school, I know that is usually the unpopular opinion but this summer has just gone by far too quickly. This is a fabulous contest.

    We always take pictures on the first day of school. I like to get up early and make a big breakfast for their first day as well. I will have to enter this contest.

    I also take photos on the first day. That’s always a must for me. I would love to see them all together once they complete school.

    My favorite back to school tradition is shopping for new school supplies. We homeschool but have been taking advantage of the current sales.

    Nice! I entered and sent to my daughter as well. The favorite back to school tradition in our house was going to an early Teppanyaki dinner after their first day.

    Would love to win that. Our tradition is just to get a first day of school photo in front of the same door.

I will have to share this with my niece for her kids When my boys were little I would take photos of them getting off the bus. We would than have a snack and they would tell me how there first day back to school was for them. Thanks for sharing the contest.
