So we started another school year two weeks ago. I can’t believe it’s already been two weeks. We got a bit of a late start due to our big trip back East (we did a LOT of traveling this summer) but it’s been good to be home and get back into the groove of things (even if the transition has been a little rough). I just wanted to share some pictures from our first day back and our family traditions.
I love these shirts! We bought large ones and made the 2027 logo last year. We are taking a picture of the girls in their shirts every year to show how they grow and change. By the time they graduate high school in 2027 the shirts should be fitting a little better (tearing up a little thinking of them growing up so fast).
Want to make your own? Just choose your year, download the pdf, and print it out on iron-on paper.
Need a different year? Here it is in powerpoint so you can change the year: Graduate T-shirt adjustable year
And of course we take normal pictures too:
Another tradition is entering the school room. I shut it down before we start school and work on getting everything clean and set up nicely (this was actually a huge project this year which I will blog about soon because I’m so proud of how it turned out). This year I decorated the door a little to build up the excitement.
And then we have all of their new school books sitting out on their desks. In addition to the books are all kinds of special treats–scented markers, new crayons, smarties candies–just some things to make the day special and celebrate their new beginning.
