First days of school. Do you remember yours? If only I had the photo to show you my first day of preschool. I still remember it...decked out in a pink dress with a pink bookbag (which looked almost as big as me) I stood next to my brother in front of the mini-van. I was so proud to be going to school.
Today is one of those days I want to remember. And why not scrapbook it right here on the blog.
A few memories and photos from my (sorta) first day of school...this time as an assistant teacher- part of the transitional kindergarten team. And I say sorta because it wasn't actually the first day of school with the kids. But it was new faculty and staff orientation. So to me, that sorta counts as my first day. Just roll with me here.
The classic "First Day of School Photo". Seeing as this is one of my three good teaching outfits I'm in need of more. Any good ideas? I've hit up Old Navy and Target for some good finds. However, it can be a little tricky to find something that is nice enough to look professional, yet casual enough for sticky fingers, markers, and kindergarten craft projects. Seriously, I could use some inspiration and recommendations.
And I came home to this...one of my husband's famous napkin notes...
He surrounded it with a few flowers and on the edges of the napkin he wrote words to describe me such as "wife", "blogger", "photographer"...
And these were waiting for me on my bedside table. I'm a huge fan of white flowers. Huge fan.
My husband is great at celebrating new beginnings and making them special. Me...not so much. How did I celebrate this day? I went grocery shopping. Case and point. Luckily I have him.
How do you make new beginnings, fresh starts, and first experiences meaningful and memorable?
