Can you remember your first day of high school?
I do, I remember what I was wearing (picture mid-80s, yikes....not sure if the styles are any better today) and how we all sat in the gymnasium for much of the day. I remember seeing all my friends and acting silly while we pretended to listen to what was being said. It was the start of 4 great years!!
Well, my daughter is starting her adventures in high school today. I can't believe my baby is going into high school. Am I really old enough to have a high school student for a child?? I have an infant too, so that makes it all really surreal.
I noticed these adorable backpacks on SCS and knew it would be the perfect first day of school type card. I've loaded it with candy and $$$$$$$. Yup, lunch money and special money. When we did the freshman orientation, we stopped by the school store and she eyed the sweatshirts. So, we figured that it would be a nice first day of high school type gift to give her the $$ to go in and pick one out. I know it's something that will get lots of wear over the next 4 years.
I used Textured Eggplant for the pack, I thought it looked more like the actual fabric of a backpack. Then I had to go onto my computer to print out the extra layer on the top flap for her school info. 2013, what a year to graduate!!
I also pulled out a retired wheel that I have which is perfect for those lion paw tracks!!! Maybe I'll get more use out of that wheel over the next 4 years as well.
Happy High School to my little girl. Praying for you as you go along this journey. I know it will be a wonderful time in your life. We are all so very proud of you and will be here for you every step of the way.
