back-to-school signs

Kristin and I are officially off summer vacation, our children are back in school and we are doing our best to catch up on work and get back in the swing of things. Thank you for your patience – we are grateful to be missed!

As a thank you, if you click on the image below, there are back-to-school signs for all your elementary-aged children. Kristin and I use these signs at the start of each school year. Looking back over the years, it's fun to see how much our children change from year to year.

Hope you enjoy and happy back-to-school!

I think this ideas is darling. A friend has taken photos of her 1 year old each month in a little rocking chair with a sign, I am _ months today. on Saturday it is his birthday and she has made a banner out of these darling photos! Such a clever way to mark a special time!

Too funny. I had just written on my 'to do' list, request a Preschool sign from you. Thank you! Let's hope now that my boy will comply and hold it long enough for a photo! Love all your beautiful work.
