School Year Time Capsule

School is officially in session. (insert sad Mommy face here) for the past few weeks I have been trying to think of a creative way to celebrate the start of school. I am sure many wonderful parents have done something like this before, but when it popped into my head I thought the idea was pretty great anyway! Somehow I decided a Time Capsule would be great fun!!! So I created two questionnaire type sheets for Kennedy to fill out! I will also include things like her height, weight and a hand and foot print! We will then pack it away until the end of the school year. Before we open it, I will have Kennedy complete similar questions and we will take measurements again. Kennedy is so creative and loves writing about herself, so I truly think she will enjoy this project!

I decided to give her a week of school to kind of get with the flow of first grade. So I plan on this being our Friday night activity! I am tickled with how they turned out!

It has been 3 years since I played around with digital scrapbooking! I was rusty but had fun playing around! The kit I used to create them is a FREEBIE! Can you believe it! You need to run to this website and check out all the amazing goodies! I can't remember how I stumbled upon it but it is now bookmarked!

Or you can download the files now!!!




Anyway, I hope to begin posting photos again soon. I lost the card reader for our memory card. Just haven't gotten a new one yet! There are soooo many summer photos left to share! Plus Kennedy's first day of school photos! UGH!

Let me know what you think of the Time Capsule idea!!!

Have a blessed day!
