Happy First Day of School!

For some families, August means that the end of Summer is coming and the beginning of the School year is approaching (fast!)

My only daughter graduated High School in 2013.  But I remember the first days of school!  All of those things you had to do to get ready. 

First you had to make sure that your First Day of School outfil was pretty!  Which also meant that you had to go shopping, which ALSO meant for me...hours at the Mall. 

Did you pack or buy your lunch?  On the first Day of School I always let my daughter buy her lunch if she wanted to.  Remember there are NO Leftovers on the Lunch Menu for the First Day of School. 

First Day of School Photos?  Those were always taken near the big tree in our front yard.  As a matter of fact ALL special photos were taken near the big tree, unless it was raining. If it was raining then the photos were taken inside the house near the front door. 

CONFESSION TIME: I actually have a photo of my daughter on her last day of High School holding a photo of herself on her first day of Kindergarten....i get teary thinking of that day.  This is what happens when you only have one...


Onward!

The First Day of School isn't only special for the Kids.  But it's also special for the Teachers. So why not make your child's teacher a little goodie to remember the First Day of School! 

For this month's first project I decided to make the Little School Box from My Scrap Chick.  It was quick and easy to make, and it's a BOX so that you can put anything in it! (Candy would be good! Teacher's like candy!) 



Now i can't promise that this will make your child the Teacher's Pet, but at least they will probably both have a REALLY good First Day of School!

Have a Great First Day of School!
