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!

Hutch (my 3yo) had his first day of (pre)school on Tuesday. I decided at the LAST minute to start a fun tradition that I wanted to share!
Our new tradition:
Every year on the 1st day of school Hutch will wear this same shirt. Then, we will take his final picture of him wearing it on his graduation day. My plan is to have a big photo wall for each of my kids, and hang the pictures in order so we can see the progression over the next 15 years!
Cutest (and easiest) idea ever, right??
Oh and yes, just for the record, she prefers “being nudie” so yes, she rode like that to school like that. Classy kinda.
I originally got this idea from Pinterest (THIS pin, specifically). To pull this cuteness off, I bought a $4 plain T-Shirt (size L…I have no idea how big he will be) from Joann Fabrics. I used a 40% off coupon. I bought some iron-on transfers from Walmart. I simply printed the text in Word, printed it on my computer, ironed it on, and good to go!
Super easy. Super fun. Super proud of myself because I normally do nothing like this.
Can I get a holla'!
