Do you have any first day of school rituals?

Today was my son's first day of 1st grade. I made him what he wanted for breakfast, chocolate chip pancakes, and had chocolate chip cookies waiting for him and his neighborhood friends when they came home.

  • no not really...I take them and walk with them to class. I always take them though but normally just drop them off. I just like to get them there on time..LOL

  • I take a picture of each child in the same spot in front of the house each year on the first day of school; ever since they started preschool. It's fun to look back and see how they've changed.

  • The night before the first day I write him a letter...which normally gets the tears flowing!! I also make him whatever he wants for breakfast and pictures and lots of hugs and kisses!!

  • Not really. Just taking a picture that morning. Although this year I forgot until two days later. I had her put on the dress she wore the first day and put her back pack on and took her picture. :-)
