Our 12-year-old Rory has “graduated” from elementary school (Grade 7 here in BC) and will be going on to High School next year. We are extraordinarily proud of him (Honour Roll Student four years in a row!) and wanted to do something special for his last day.
I started us off with a little Boccini, Tomato, and Basil appetizer drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar:
Followed by pseudo Tuscan Pasta salad with Bison Meatballs:
Friday will be his first day off of school for the summer so Melissa and I will surprise him tomorrow morning when he wakes up with a banner, balloons, and Silly String. 🙂
I gotta say – I am *rocking* this whole stepfather thing!
