recently, i found a photo on pinterest that had a child holding
a printed sign with her grade and teacher's name on it for a first day of school photo.
super cute idea.
a lot of people are doing them now.
my friend did one for her first grader, kindergartener,
and even one for her 2 yr old that says
"first day of being an only child...finally!"
well, not to be left out, we did our own.
my oldest left for her first day of kindergarten today.
instead of typing and printing a sign
(since i don't have a printer),
we used a chalkboard i had picked up in st. joe,
a chalkboard marker and my daughter's writing skills.
she loves to write and copy letters,
so i let her do this all by herself.
i love the idea of having them write their own
and being able to see how they've grown each year,
both in height and writing skills.
we will definitely continue this tradition.
