With the first day of school rapidly approaching, do you have any traditions for the first day of school?

We don't do too much for the first day. I always make them a big breakfast and drive them to school. Before we leave we take pictures by the front door. I have them hold up the number of fingers per grade they are in (so 3 fingers for 3rd grade). It has been fun looking at them from year to year!

I love looking at the old pictures.

I remember seeing pictures of Dedi's girls when they did this (I think I saw it on Facebook maybe?). Totally cute idea!

I was just thinking today that I should put together some kind of collage with all of their pictures. This is Jacob's last year of grade school (*sniff*) so it will be fun to see how he has changed from kindy to 5th!
