Many people have done the picture-with-added-text thing for a kiddo's birthday, but I love the school year tweak. This example is from Priceless Impressions Blog and I love how much she was able to write about her son. Thinking back on Kenzie, she's so different starting 5th grade than she was starting 4th! If you're curious, her favorite band of the moment is The Civil Wars and her favorite song is Lights by Ellie Goulding (what can I say, she has good taste!)
There are a million other ideas out there, but these are some of my favs. I'm pretty sure I'll also use my favorite mirror-turned-chalkboard to document a few. Jess and I have had some fun with it in the past... (aren't we dorks?!?)
Aren't they cool? The back slide has lines for you to write a note. I already informed the hubs that even though he usually makes the sandwiches, that I get to leave the fun notes!
Now, all you mid-westerners and southerners... Tell me what you did for first day pics. I'd love some more ideas! And, When did your area start school?
