Today was our first day of school after a unusually short summer break. We pretty much started in medias res with math, English, and some discussions on self-identity.
Before we delved into our core subjects, however, we worked on our school memory keepsake books. Every year, the kids note their weight, height, and career aspiration. Then, we take a first day of school picture. Our whole family enjoys referring to these journals and seeing how the kids develop over the years. I for myself wish I had something like that as a kid such that I could share it with my family today.
How do you celebrate your first day of school?
