I was all prepared this year and finally did something I had wanted to do for the last couple of years.
Last day of school pictures.
I LOVE comparison pictures. It can show you just how far you’ve come and how much further you may have to go. It shows grow, change and maturity. Really cool stuff to document.
You may think I have it easy since my kids have blue eyes and they just pop and are so bright in pictures. Well let me tell you, people with blue eyes (not me) are way more sensitive to light, so when we head outside, I almost always have an eye squinter, tears and looking down pictures to deal with. Hunter is particularly bad, his eyes are so, so sensitive to light.
Unfortunately this little bugger doesn’t get his own back to/last day of school picture for another year.
I also made some teacher gifts this year. They were really, cheap to make too, I think they were about $5 for two of them.
I painted some clay pots (all supplies from where else, Michaels!!) with black chalk board paint, and the rim yellow. Marked out a ruler and drew the lines with a sharpie marker. The plants are from Home Depot and that’s it.
