I used a combination of this and this tutorial and they were quite easy to make. I especially liked using the wrapping paper on the Schultütes for the girls, they turned out so pretty!
We are now as ready as we are going to be (It just isn’t possible to be totally ready, is it?), for our first day of school tomorrow, and my children are finally excited! They have been begging all week to postpone school “just one more week.” Not any more! 😉
When do your children begin school for the year, and do you have any back to school traditions? I think this just might be the start of one in our home.
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
