As I was writing my daughter her back to school letter it occurred to me to blog about it. Maybe some of you do this or maybe you don't. At the beginning of every school year I write my daughter a letter. In the letter I write what all of her interests are at the time (friends, t.v. shows, sports, books she has recently read, etc.) I also write what I hope the upcoming school year brings for her.
At the end of the school year I also write her a letter. In this letter I recap the year ( including non-school related highlights). I never read the beginning of the school year letter prior to writing the end of the school year letter. It is way too much fun to write the end of the year letter and then compare the two. I always forget what I wrote at the beginning of the year. LOL
At a time when life is hectic and I cannot keep up with her scrapbook & journal this is a great alternative. I would love to hear if any of you do the same thing for your kids.
Well off she goes tomorrow to Middle School. Her cousin (Darth Vader in the above picture) will be with her. This is the first year they will overlap at the same school. While it is her first year there it is his last and then he is on to high school. Once again, where did the time go?
I hope that you all have a fabulous day! Thanks for stopping by!
