Thank you to Hallmark for sponsoring this Back to School Memories Giveaway. First Day of school really is a “Hallmark Moment”.
(DISCLOSURE #2) My kids have not started school yet, this picture was taken for blog review purposes!!
The beginning of each school year is a reminder of how quickly time flies. It’s an opportunity to make memories that will last far beyond the classroom years. And, whether it’s kindergarten or senior year, sometimes a simple “You can do it!” helps remind kids that you’re rooting for them, no matter what. Rooting to say “yes you are back in school” LOL.
Before you know it the first day of school is here, the school supplies are all purchased, the back packs stuffed and lunches made. They are off but did you capture that once a year look on film? SO many years I have had to reenact this moment because this time of year is so very hectic. This time in their lives is so very special and will be fun to look back on.
Close to Home received a “Making Memories & Encouraging Kids” gift pack to review and I am sad my oldest child is already in middle school and I don’t have them photographed so cutely. Yes I have them photographed but I just guess what year it was! I thought this was adorable and it comes with a cute photo album. More than one kid, no worries just make a collage picture and add it to the album!
