Here we are nearing the end of another summer gone by too quickly. Even though it seems like we were just attending moving up ceremonies and buying swimsuits, summer vacation is coming to an end. As much as I dislike seeing the summer end though, there is something exciting about this whole “Back to School” thing. New notebooks and pencils, printing out lunch notes to stash in their lunch and the anticipation of cooler fall weather. These little traditions give us something to look forward to as the last days of summer vacation tick by. One of our favorite traditions is to get out of the house a little earlier that first day back to school and take some fun photos. We usually start in front of out house, then head to the bus stop to grab a few shots with friends too. I love hanging the photos in our living room until those first school pictures come home, and they a fun keepsake timeline to stash in a memory box. We’ll bring along these 2016 First Day of School Printable Signs to pass around and share with friends this year!
Just click on the sign you want to print to be taken to the full size 8X10 image, save the image and print it! I like to stick the signs in an inexpensive matted frame like this to make them easier to hold and use as photo props.
