Back to school traditions?

Even though she's getting more used to the idea of homeschooling, Kendall is still a little bummed that come fall she won't be going to the school near us for kindergarten. I am looking for ideas of fun things we could do on the first day of school to make it really special for her. Do any of you have traditions for the first day school? I want to do something when the public school starts, like go see a movie or go to the park, things we wouldn't be able to do if she were in school then. And then I want her first official day of homeschool to be special too.

I saw a few things on a message board like making a schultute and taking pictures.

My favorite idea was to get doughnuts on the morning that public school starts and then drive by the school, roll down the windows, and yell, "Suckas!!!" :) I'm so going to do that one. :)

Summer Schedule

I wish I had this doormat.

Only mine would say "last month" instead.

We just got back in town, the house is a mess and the kids are driving each other crazy. Do any of you stick to a schedule for the kids to keep peace and order in your home? It's way to hot to play outside here so that limits us to mostly indoor activities. I would like to keep TV watching to a minimum but sometimes it seems to be the only way to stop the bugging/screaming cycle. Any suggestions?
