I love this tradition now, of taking pictures of the kids before school starts. This is probably about the best they'll ever look since this isn't the hair-done-just-before-running-out-the-door look, so I don't know if it's a great representation ;) but aww well. I love to capture their expressions, their excitement, and be able to see how much they change from year to year!
In the past, I have hand written their chalkboard signs, but since my chalkboard is in storage, I used this great printable from Skip to my Lou.
I also like doing the sidewalk chalk writing - I wonder if I'll still be making them do this in high school? ;)
And of course, little sister has to get in the picture...
And hold the signs... lol.
Here's an adorable one that they did all by themselves. Little cuties.
And just because it's fun to see the comparison, here are a few from past years...
I like to take a picture of them against a blank wall so that I can include writing about them. PicMonkey.com is a great option for adding the words, because it is easy, and free!
Okay, that's it! Don't grow up anymore!!
Hope start of school is going well for all of you out there with kids! It isn't too late to go outside and take some of these pictures now, if you didn't get around to it before school started.
These pics are certainly ones I cherish!
