I surprised the boys after their first day of school with some goodies from Pearl Bakery. Their seasonal berry tarts are my favorite. I also love their chocolate chunk cookies and since j is a macaron fan I picked up a peach + ginger and pistachio macarons. J's all time favorite pastry is pain au chocolat so of course I had to grab one of those too! I made some simple food flags to decorate the baked goods. The boys were happy campers when they came home and saw these goodies on the kitchen table. They ate one sweet treat and then I packed another one in their lunch today.

That is so sweet and makes for such lovely memories! My mom always used to have a treat for me on the first day of school and that is definitely something that I never forgot! My senior year, it was a "Happy last first day of school" cake and a little party! haha

This is such a nice way of highlighting those special occasions. And a good way to get them more excited about school. It's a great ritual, so sweet!
