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!

    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! 😉
