Works for Me Wednesday: Documenting the First Day of School

Since today is the Back-to-School Edition of Works for Me Wednesday, I thought I'd share something that we did for Emma's first year of preschool last year. We took her picture holding a sign that said "First Day of Preschool 2008." When school starts this year, we'll make a new one for 2009. That way, when we look back years from now, we'll know exactly what year it was just by reading the sign in the picture. Here's a picture of last year's first day.


Of course we took some without the sign too. This is one thing that I'm REALLY glad we did! It works for me!

For more ideas that work, stop by Works for Me Wednesday sponsored by We Are THAT Family.
