Beat the Back-to-School Blues

ss_DanteBeatrixDinoStrange time to be asking this, I know, but do you have any back-to-school traditions in your family to help celebrate the new school year and beat the back-to-school blues so your kid doesn’t feel so bummed about the end of summer? Share your tradition, and it could end up in the magazine!

    I always try to set up a BYO (buy your own) ice cream party. We have a “sneak-a-peek” the Friday before school starts where all the kids find out who their teacher will be. I print up simple invites to distribute there, letting everyone know that it’s completely optional and BYO, but it serves as a great chance for the kids to catch up and/or meet. It’s a nice ice-breaker to ease any first day jitters!

    Such a great idea, Michelle! I had completely forgotten about how exciting the “teacher reveal” was, and finding out who was going to be in your class…

    I’m a *big* fan of the start of school – always have been! It’s always been my own sort of “new year’s” celebration. When I was a kid it was a new grade, new things to learn, new teacher and classmates . . . and there was just something about a notebook full of blank paper and a big box of new crayons that screamed of possibilities to me. Now as a parent it’s almost as exciting seeing it though my kids’ eyes . . . plus, all that free time while the kids are at school just screams of possibilities to me! ;)

    Oh, I did forget to mention with the BYO ice cream party – we pick a local parlor to do it at and just specify a time range that we’ll be there. Not everyone comes, but it’s open to anyone who’d like to!

    I would like to add to this forum another Bolling sonI descend from Churchill Blakey and Agnes Anthony (daughter of Joseph Anthony and Elizabeth Clark, Elizabeth being the daughter of Christopher and Penelope(Bolling?) Clark. My lines come down to a g/g/g/grandfather, Mark A. Blakey, Sr, who had a brother, Bolling Blakey,b. 182? a prominent citizen of early Barrow County, formerly Gwinnett County, Georgia. An extensive life long work of the late Cleff Jackson Smith, Gwinnett County, Ga. noted in her work the notes of a Blakey genealogist, the Blakey family lore that had been passed down from the 1800s. Ms. Smiths work was primarily focused on the descendants of Hartwell Jackson, b. 1777, however she was impressed (and apparently concurred) with the sources cited to include the work of the Blakey family, although this was a line that ascended laterally and only had a connection to the Jackson family by marriage. Cleff was a wonderful Aunt Pittypat and could recite lines up/down/and sideways. It would be interesting to find ALL of the Bollings descended from Christopher and Penelope Clark. Perhaps, this will add a stronger preponderance to support a Bolling Connection. However, with todays wonderful technology, I for one as a documented descendant from the Clarks (among the multitude!) would be willing to contribute a DNA sample to be compared with a known Bolling descendant to establish a common ancestor.
