Back to School + a Link Up!

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

It's that time of year again! Back to school.

Even though Mason technically started preschool last September, there's just something about heading into a new "school year season" that makes me reminisce about my days in school. This is a occasion that will be celebrated, photographed and blogged about like no other because my baby is one year older and is entering into his second year of school. My sweet boy took the cutest school pictures last year and I've already got his outfit all planned out for the ones this year. I didn't plan on buying any last year, but they turned out so, so cute, that I had to and I'm sure this year's will be no different.

And because I'm not the only Mama who loves documenting such moments, Stephanie, Meghan and I have created a fun linkup, allowing Mamas to share all their back to school posts.


Details on the linkup

Starting today, we are looking for posts that include first day of school photos, interviews and play by play recaps of the special day. Looking for photography ideas? Visit this Pinterest board that has 50 unique ideas! You better believe I plan on taking a thousand million pictures of Mason's first day and I'm not above bribery to hopefully take a few pictures of him with a cute sign. (cross your fingers!) Since he doesn't talk yet, I'm also thinking of filling out a fun little survey for him that he can look back on in the years to come.

Who Should Participate

Moms to little ones starting school, MOPS or Mothers' Day out. We would love to celebrate this exciting time with you by you sharing your posts and pictures with us! Are you a teacher with insight to how the first day of school really goes? Or have tips for parents? Share those posts and photos too! 

Important Dates & Details

You have from today until September 18th to link up any all back to school posts. If your children start school after the 18th and you want to participate, let me know and I can move the closing date back so you can join in too. If you aren't a blogger and want to join in, use #2015B2S (B2S = back to school) when you share photos on Facebook and Instagram so we can check them out. Additionally, use that same hashtag to share any photos of your family preparing for the new school year along with any posts you may have including the topic "back to school". Grab our button and add it to your side bar, social media sites and posts to spread the school spirit this fall!

  1. Liz what a great link-up for parents. I hope you don't mind I had to post my top three as a teacher. And the Q & A for Mason, we do that throughout the year for different occasions in my class and the parents love it. Their children always answer differently in school than home so they like to compare the answers. Thanks for the party.

  3. Caleb starts his two-day-a-week preschool class next month, so I will be sure to link up then!:) I'd love to know what survey you're going to fill out for Mason. Caleb talks a bit, but can't answer questions that most of the surveys include (like "What do you want to be when you grow up?") so if you have one that we could use and I could help fill out for him, we'd love it!

  5. I have to admit, I am not excited about the new school year. Because that means that my baby is starting kindergarten. Why does time move so fast? But, I will definitely be joining in this fun linkup! Thanks for hosting.

  7. Can't wait to share our back to school experiences!! I was thinking about doing a Q&A with Wyatt too. He's not saying much but maybe a few easy questions!

  8. I feel both left out and glad that Aria doesn't school yet. I'd miss that little face, but I think they certainly can flourish and make friends and learn so much that way too. One day though. Too soon I'm sure. I can't believe school time is already here.

  9. I can't wait to see every-bodies posts. I think it will be even more interesting to see the difference between first day and last day.
