Back to School Celebration - Homeschool Style. Back to school celebration?? Is that when moms get together for a pool day after dropping kids off for 8 hours at school? Not at our house it isn't. (Although I wouldn't argue with an adult only pool party.) For my kids back to school this year means a kick off day of partying with their friends, swimming, a giant slip and slide, and hanging out with friends. Only part of the kids even realized this was the day their public school friends went back to school. We are out of the loop that way.
