I’m still in complete shock that it is already July. JULY. That means summer is already half over! Where did the time go?! I’m pretty sure I’m in denial actually. I am nowhere near prepared for the upcoming school year and I’m starting to stress a little about it.
Instead of actually taking the time to start planning, I keep pushing it off until tomorrow. I’ve been doing this for pretty much the entire month of June now.
In fact, I had school planning written in my planner for tonight to work on in my “free time” (whatever that is). That definitely didn’t happen! I did update my FREE first day of school printables for you all though! So, I was still productive in some way, right?
I’m going to just keep telling myself this to help me feel better…
I first made these a couple of years ago. Before then I had never really gotten into the whole sign-holding-first-day thing, but for some reason last year I decided I wanted to get in on the action. Maybe it had something to do with lil’ sis starting preschool?
Either way, we’ll now be one of “those” families blessing your Facebook feeds this coming August with these awesomely updated signs!
I pulled out these pictures from a couple of years ago the other day, and they brought me so much happiness. I can’t wait to compare this year’s photo’s to these and last year’s.
These photos are still some of my very favorites of my kids, so I’m really glad I jumped on the bandwagon and started this tradition!
(My printer started running out of ink last year, can ya tell? This is why you should have them professionally printed!)
FREE First Day of School Printable Signs
I have created a sign for every single grade starting at Pre-K and going all the way up to college. Yes. COLLEGE. If you’re going to do this, you’ve gotta do it right! Right?
I even added some extra ones in for the Highschool and College years that say the name of the year. For example, “Freshman Year” instead of 9th grade.
You’re getting a variety here people!
Print these out as 8×10 photo’s at your local photo lab, or with your own printer set at the “best” setting. Then, put them in a pretty frame for that extra bit of cuteness.
When the first day of school finally comes, just have your child hold these up for a memorable photo keepsake that you will treasure for years to come. Every year you will be able to compare them to the previous year(s) to see how much they have grown.
I sincerely hope you find these to be helpful and also bring you just as many good memories to look back and reminisce on over the years to come. Check back every year, I’ll be updating them as I go (here’s to hoping I’m still blogging then!).
If you use these in your homeschool, please share them on Instagram and use the hashtag #thischaoticbliss so that I can see them in use! It would really make my day to know that they were helpful to another family!
