Wordless Wednesday

Back to School with Hallmark {LINKY} #ww #WordlessWednesday

Hallmark 5th GradeWell it has happened to me again. Just when I wasn’t looking, my kids went and grew up a little on me. Some days I cannot believe how quickly they are growing, getting older and just becoming such amazing, independent individuals.

Other days I want to curl up the corner, in the fetal position, and cry because my babies are growing up. I tell them constantly to stop growing but they never listen.

Since they don’t listen, I have had to get much better about chronicling their (our) lives and cherishing every single moment. Hallmark sent me a few of their new back-to-school items to check out including this Pics ‘N’ Props School Days Activity Kit with a cool chalkboard with inserts for each grade and some back-to-school themed greeting cards. Check out the Hallmark full line of back-to-school items, Tweet with Hallmark on Twitter or Like Hallmark on Facebook.

    I love the chalkboard idea! I always take pics of my kids on the first day of school but I never label pictures and at this point cant remember what year they were taken!

    What cute pictures. I agree they grow so quickly that’s why I am such a picture junkie myself!

    Your children are beautiful and I love how you captured each one. That chalk board is awesome and since it has inserts, you can use it year after year, right? So cool!

    Hi, I’m here from Loving Life’s Simplicities. I love the chalkboards! I had thought I was going to draw on a chalkboard for our first day, but alas I was unprepared as usual so we went with white crayon on black construction paper! 😉
