Back to School--K, 3rd, 5th, and ICM

This is an extra big year in the Henson house!  All three kids are at the same school and Zeb started school again this year, too!

We had our annual dinner on the Saturday before school started.  I always let the kids pick and I'm pretty sure they pick this meal every year--steak, shrimp, roasted broccoli, and homemade macaroni and cheese--and apple cookies from Beagle Bagel!

This year after watching the Olympics, we decided to add a sprititual element to our dinner.  We watched this clip of the silver medal divers saying that this medal was nice, but it wasn't their idenity. Zeb then tried to tie that in with our work and school.  I think he did a really good job because I have had several good discussions with Sara Beth since about how hard it is to work hard at something and not find our identity in the accomplishments or grades.
