First day of 1st grade

For all you moms out there that have kids heading out to school, I don't know if you're like me, but today I'm doing my "mommy happy dance" as my mother in law calls it.  Do you know what I'm talking about?  The dance we do when our kids go to for the first day after summer break, or when they've done something amazing that makes us super proud.  Don't get me wrong, it's been an amazing summer!  We have done a lot of fun things that I'm going to tell you all about soon, but I was so ready for school to start today!

My Oldest is a 1st grader this year!! It is so hard to believe how fast they grow up.  Summer amazingly flew by!  How is it that it takes so long to get here, but seems like it flies by?  It's not fair, I'm not ready for summer to be over.

Do you all have fun things you do for your little ones or their teacher for the 1st day of school?  I shared a few things last year, but being that we just got back from vacation on Saturday, I didn't do anything fun or exciting this year. I know, shame on me, but I'm sure he'll be fine, and I'll work on a few things the rest of the week, and share them with you.  Here is a sweet wreath for your house, or makes a great teacher gift!


I would love for you to leave me a link in the comments with the fun things you do the first week of school.   Hope you all have an amazing week, and enjoy your little ones, while they are little!

Cue piece. We have a special dinner and dessert. We take pics of each kid walking out the door. Thanks for asking. Erin

Great first day picture. I forgot mine this year. I'm still recovering from leaving our oldest at college. Seeing your son -- I can so remember my oldest boy at that age going to school. Too cute.

Aw! The 1st day is always so exciting! I think I'll cry when my little ones start school though!
