I have some people have their kids put backpacks on, and enter their house to take pictures of back to school. Kinda funny and cute but I don't know that I'm going to do that. Lol
I would like to do something special to kind of, play up that it's our first day.
Do you do anything on your first day back, if you don't unschool or school year round?

When she was younger we would do first day crafts. Now she is in 5th grade, maybe do a first day lunch or dinner.

I'd like to at least take a yearly picture or something to remember the years by.

We go out and get breakfast on our first day back, and take pictures at breakfast. The first day is when I let ds decorate and label his portfolio for the year, too.

We have a "Back to school" lunch party! Every year we order pizza for lunch on our "first day" back and have soda and sometimes ice cream just to get them excited about a new "year" (we school for the most part year round)

We take a picture of the kids on the first day of Options (their homeschool enrichment program), but I think that's about it.  Otherwise, it's life as usual, so I'm always taking pictures!  LOL

I do think it's cool when people get their kids a backpack and take their kid's picture every year wearing the same backpack.  Watch the backpack shrink.
