documenting childhood: school photo & interview

This year I’ve been devoting one week a month to a themed blog series, with daily blog posts.  I’ve talked all about project life, shared some ‘wish someone told me sooner’ parenting advice, written about ways to preserve your memories/photos, revealed our favorite things in West Seattle, taught a few easy photo editing tips & celebrated my third birthday.  This week, I shared fun & easy ways to document childhood!

fun & easy ways to document childhood

How is the week already over?  To quickly recap, I shared free monthly photo signs for baby’s first year, tips for creating a baby book quickly (with a free notes page download to organize your thoughts!), a fun way to preserve your child’s artwork, and a template for a cute DIY birthday banner to showcase your child’s progression over the years.  Today, I’m sharing a freebie that’ll help you document the school-age years.

I’ve shared this in prior years, but the new files are updated for the 2016-2017 school year!
