John's First Day pictures

John started his first day of pre-school yesterday. I was pretty nervous about dropping him off. I knew that he would be totally fine but I didn't know if I would have a major breakdown in the middle of his classroom. Thankfully John had absolutely no issues with me leaving him (hmmmm...maybe he is tired of being around me?!) and I didn't cry at all. I was surprised that I held it together.

Anywho, I wanted to share his 1st day of school pictures. I saw the idea all over pinterest (to which I am totally addicted) to do the 'favorites' on the picture. I am glad I knew I wanted to do this before hand so I knew to take some pictures with John framed to the side.

I also saw lots of cute pictures of the kids holding printed signs for their age or grade. I didn't get my act together for that one and figured it would be tough to get John to take a picture holding something we would need to read. So instead I gave him a white magnetic board we had and told him to hold it. (he chose to get on the scooter that is probably too small for him!). Then I just photoshopped in the words. Much easier that way!

So, the moral of my story is, a little prep work and thought before taking important pictures goes a long way. I think we were able to get a couple cute pictures of an always-moving John!

  1. I love your idea of adding in the words on the magnetic board afterwards, it's genius!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! They make my day when I read them!...unless you are being mean, then they don't make my day. :)
