Not Back To School Day 2014




Where did summer go?????

I’m not going to lie, this is probably the most unprepared for the start of the school year that I have ever been!

I started seeing back to school posts filter through my news feed last week and went into a panic! However, I somehow managed to pull it off! It is a lot less “homemade” than usual but I’m ok with that! haha

This year I found some really cute owl themed decorations on “Teachers Pay Teachers” and some free printable Owl Back To School by doing  Google search.

Yes, I cheated and bought them then customized to our homeschool needs.

We have a tradition here at the Hoggatt Homeschool of celebrating “Not” back to school day when the area schools have their first day. This gives us some time to get crafty, do back to school photos, and organize our class room.

The night before Not Back to School Day our friendly “Back To School Fairy” delivers some goodies and decorates the class room for the girls to discover the next morning.

Here are some photos of the decorations…







Back To School Fairy Goodies…

Our back to school fairy did a lot of shopping at the Dollar Store this year. We didn’t need much since my kiddos take pretty good care of their supplies.


Here is what they got…


Erasable Colored Pencils


New Watercolor Paint



Ink Pens

New Headphones (we are going to be using SOS on the computers this year)

Water Bottle

Spiral Notebook

New completed work folder


Back to School Outfit




 Here is last years Not Back To School Day!

Tomorrow I’ll share more about the outfits and Back to School Photos!

What is your back to school tradition?
