Back-to-school tradition…watch how they grow!

Super easy back-to-school tradition! Take a photo of your child wearing the same shirt on the first day of school every year, ending with their graduation day. From
As back-to-school is in full swing, I thought I’d remind you of the fun tradition we do every year (…aka…we just started last year for the first time because my kid had just started preschool…). My kids won’t start school until after Labor Day this year, so you’ll have to wait on the edge of your seat for this year’s super cute pics. In the meantime enjoy this post (and pics) from last year. And keep in mind…even if school has already started for you, it’s not too late to do this tradition for yourself! Heck, you could do it 3 months into school and it’s still better than nothing. So give it a try, your posterity will thank you!
