Friday Favorites :: Back to School Edition - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama

Friday Favorites :: Back to School Edition

by - Friday, September 02, 2016

Hey Hey!

Like every Friday I am linking up with Erika, Narci & Andrea for Friday Favorites.

This week I am doing a back to school edition since school just started for us.

On Monday Cooper started first grade!
How crazy!?!
Time goes by too quickly.

And he still wants to coach the Washington Redskins when he grows up.
He must really want his mama to become a fan because I told him a couple years ago that the only way I would ever cheer for them is if he either played for them or coached them!
Millie Jo had to get her picture made with the big first grader, too! :)
I don't think it gets any easier dropping your kiddos off for the first day of school but the fact that he was so excited made it a little bit easier.
No tears rom him or me.
And he has such a sweet teacher, too!
I was looking through pictures this week & found these . . .
First grade.

Every year we take a picture like the ones above of us together.
I'm pretty sure he will still want one like that all the way to middle & high school.  HA!

Last year before he started kindergarten I saw that Shay did a questionnaire with her kiddos so I thought it would be a fun tradition to start.

You can see his answers from last year here.

Here is what he said this year ...

1. What are you most excited about this year in first grade? Going outside to play

We even decided to start a new tradition this year, too. 
Every year on the first day of school after I pick up, we are going to go celebrate & talk about the first day over a sweet treat.
Oh family traditions, I love you.
This year Coop chose Sweet Frog :).

Happy Friday, friends!
