Back to School

Today was my son's first day of school.  (3rd grade...really??)  In keeping with the tradition I've started when I made them these mini mailboxes, I made a little 3 x 3 card to tuck in there with a little note.  I added a few other things in there too!  He was soo ready to go back to school but am I??  I think what else has been on my mind lately is that my daughter will be joining him at school next year for kindergarten!  So, I have one year left with her before she goes out into the "world". 



Here are some of the pics that "didn't turn out" and those that I love. 

Can you say smile?
Stop Mom!!
This one is my fav! (it was the last one!)
                
Have a great first day of 3rd grade Brett!  I love you!

What a sweet thing to make a special card for your son's first day of school :) I don't know what 3rd grade is like in your school district, but it was both my son and daughters favorite year of grade school. Hope your son has a fabulous year too!
