We’re back to school, and everyone’s schedule is back to busy. Between the hustle and bustle of the school year, here are 13 pictures you should take of your kids each and every year.
Thank you to Payless Shoes for partnering with us for this back to school discussion.
Confession, I forgot to take Lydia’s first day of school picture. I dropped her off, and rushed off to work. Mid-way through the morning, I realized my mistake. I’m not going to lie, I was PRETTY upset. She had been in school part time over the summer, and I sort of forgot that the new year was starting. But when I started to see everyone’s cute first day of school pictures pop up, I cringed. I’d forgotten something IMPORTANT! We did (mom of the year over here’s idea) take second day of school pictures.There's nothing wrong with second day of school pictures, right? #momoftheyear Click To Tweet
But, my solution? I made a list of all the special days during the school year I wanted to document. They’re now in my calendar. Let’s be honest, otherwise….the hustle and bustle of life will take over.
Pictures to Take Each School Year:
- First Day of School (second day if you forgot, like we did)
- First Day of Fall
- Back to School Night
- First Big Project
- Halloween Parade
- Classroom Thanksgiving
- Holiday / Winter Performance
- First Day of Winter Break
- Valentine’s Day Cards
- Spring Celebration / May Day
- Report Cards
- Open House
- Last Day of School
