My New First Day of School Tradition

My New First Day of School Tradition

Kids grow up so fast!

My two-and-a-half year-old son, Elias, recently started pre-school. If you are at all like me, when your child starts school you don’t want to forget what stage of life they are in. Because I want to remember this special day, I thought it would be fun to start a new yearly tradition in our family. And maybe you will too!

One way that we documented and remember the first day of school is by making a first day of school sign and taking a picture. We wrote these things on our sign:

1) First day of school

2) Elias' grade

3) The date

4) And what he wants to be when he grows up.

My goal is to take this same type of picture every year! It will be such a fun way to see how he changes and grows.
