I’m not going to participate in a challenge for you today as I normally do on Sunday’s. Instead I promised photo’s of my granddaughter Kaitlynn’s 1st Day of Pre-K (I love this kiddo!) and I also promise I do have a project for you after you scroll through the photos:
I saw this idea on Pinterest and told my daughter Jessica about it. Each year when you take a “first day of school” photo, you log the information on a frame for your child to hold. I thought this was such a cute idea! This is 4 year old Kaitlynn holding up her very first frame for her very 1st day of school…Pre-K!
I’m so proud of her. She cried a little at the thought of going to school for the very first time. I’m sure it is quite intimidating but we got her calmed down and she did climb those “big bus” steps. We assured her we would follow her to school and be there to take a photo of her getting off the bus and conquering those super duper huge steps!
Kaitlynn’s assigned seat in her classroom. Yes, even Grammy followed the bus to school to meet her teacher and take a peek at her classroom!
Kaitlynn & Mom waiting for the “BIG” bus! Kaitlynn wasn’t smiling like this when she first woke up that morning realizing where she was going. Poor thing. What a huge step for her. She is so attached to her mom!
And yes, this is my project for today. How can my grandchild not have a tag with her name on the back for her giraffe book bag? Kaitlynn LOVES giraffe’s. I first spotted this punch art giraffe on Linda Fisher’s blog a long time ago and had it bookmarked. I knew I would use it again someday. Here is a close-up:
Once I had it all completed, I laminated it with a laminating machine so that it would withstand the weather and beating around with a young one! I also used So Saffron 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon to secure the tag to Kaitlynn’s book bag. On the back I added her name and grade in case the book bag is misplaced on the bus or at school:
