Incase you missed it…here and here….this is the traditional “back to school” picture that we take every year. I recently came across the picture of my kids helping to plant this tree….sigh…..
8th grade….#holycow…I remember this picture vividly. Hubs and I laughing at ourselves thinkin we are qualified to be planting a tree. This little tree was one of the first things we did when we moved to our house. By random chance…not planned at all…I began taking first day of school pictures in front of it.
Surely there is some deep thought about giving our kids roots…and watching them grow….and all of that. It just makes my heart happy to see this “growth” each year….I am no gardener…but I must be doing something right;)
I tried my own version of “dear photograph”…..
Happy back to school week local friends….and to the rest of you…enjoy your last days of summer fun…they are gone too soon…

I shared this last year….but on that post the picture is so small you can’t see it that well. It is a fun idea to revisit this picture idea for the first day of school. This year…I will tack on here 7th grade (for real?!!….seems so odd to me that I have 2 seventh graders…I say this every year though…) I love seeing how the tree grows up right along side of them….
As you know…I am not a fabulous gardener (understatement of the year…) but somehow this tree is doing pretty darn spectacular….seems I must be doing something right ;)
I wish you all a wonderful end of summer…and fresh fabulous start to a grand new school year!
And it is never to late to start…just pick a tree or flowering bush…and start this year :)
