Yee-haw, y’all.

It’s about time for summer break!

I know, not every parent loves the months and months of sibling rivalry, whining about boredom, and non-stop sticky popsicle puddles all over the place, but as a homeschooler? I love summer break! It means that I don’t have to argue about workbooks or waste my time reading aloud to children that aren’t listening.

I thought it would be fun to celebrate the end of the school year (we don’t actually finish school until July around here – we have a weird schedule, but we’ll celebrate the end of year for you!) with a special breakfast!

Can you imagine surprising your kids on their first day of summer break with these rich chocolate waffles drowned in melted peanut butter? Breakfast nirvana.

Of course, you could stop there, but I livened things up with this totes adorable yee-haw cake topper! It just cracks me up for some reason! Love it!

Lisa Leonard Designs makes all kinds of adorable hand stamped goodies from jewelery to decor. The quality of my little cake topper is top notch. The letters aren’t perfectly straight, which just adds to the adorable hand made factor.
