School Picture Day

Today was our first day back to (home)school. 

We continued our tradition of coloring signs to signify new grade levels.  The younger kids enjoy coloring with new crayons and the older kids undertake the challenge of adding a personal theme to their signs.  We do it as a lighthearted way to jump into a new year, but the signs are also a great memento.  I save them to place as the title page in each child's year-end portfolio.  At the end of the year, I look back on how each child has developed and changed. 

This year I also asked the kids to dress in their favorite outfits for the first day of school. It was a rainy, dreary day so our photos are inside this year.

Gavin, 6th grade; Lord of the Rings theme

Maddie; 4th grade; Jungle animal theme
Owen; 2nd grade; Candy theme

Ben; kindergarten

Alaine; pre-pre-school
