Our back to school tradition

It's pretty simple, and it's definitely not as amazing as some of those chalkboards and cool, stylized things my friends do, but it works for us. 

On the first day of school I grab a marker and a sheet of paper and do a quick survey of the kids. 
"I am excited to learn..."
"I want to be a ____ when I grow up."
"I like...."

It's so fun to see them change from the beginning to the end of each year and then from school year to school year. 

So here's this year's, for prosperity's sake. 



  1. God love James and his love for trains. So darn cute! By the way I'm stealing this idea next year when Clark starts school. :)

  2. I'm sensing a train theme here, lol. Very cute!

  3. I love this Bonnie! Filing it away for a couple of years...

  4. You're the one who first introduced me to this idea, and I love it!

    How stoked are you about fall/autumn? :) :) :)

  5. Awww Lydia reminds me of myself when I was her age - I wanted to be a mommy too! :) And still do of course.
