After a 3 millennia week summer break, Kendall’s gearing up to start his first day of K3 (preschool for 3 year olds) next Tuesday. He’s attended the Mother’s Day Out portion of this program since he was a year old, but now? It’s all official. He’s in a class with his name on the back of a chair, they have to line up to go get water from the water fountain, and they get computer time (!). He even has the cutest weetle locker you ever did see. (If you’re on my home page, click through to see said adorable locker and read more)

He’s like a real little boy. A straight up, potty trained (except for at night), little boy who even wears tennis shoes with LACES and goes to SCHOOL in a CLASSROOM where there are letters and numbers on the wall that he will LEARN. OMG, I can’t handle it.

He’s growing so fast, and I’m scrambling to try to document and remember as many of these small moments. It’s possible I feel a bit of guilt over the whole no baby book thing. So, I’m going to make up for it!

I got a large School Years journal/organizer from momAgenda. It has one page/pocket for every year from Preschool- 12th grade.

Since preschool will consist of 2 years for him (K3 and K4), I will have to split the information on that page. I just did that by drawing lines with Sharpie in the middle of each field to fill out. I’ll put 2 pictures up top. There’s plenty of room.

Each page is actually part of a pocket (a pretty generous one) where you can store art, report cards, silly notes and other mementos.

And the back of each one has spaces to fill out things like friends, activities, sports and special achievements, along with a spot for them to sign their name.

I’m itching to fill it out for this year already!

As part of momAgenda‘s Back To School campaign, they want to help one of you celebrate and document your child’s time in school, too. So I’m giving away one large School Years journal. You’ll be able to pick your own color. Exciting, right?!

  1. I’m a complete nerd and I love to buy school supplies. It was my favorite time of year to meet my teacher, get the list and go buy all the stuff. I would bring it home and get it all organized for the first day. Still love it.

  2. My favorite first day of school memory is the agony of choosing the outfit! Then laying it all out from undies to socks to hair bands, etc!!

  3. I remember going to school late (I missed the first 2 days because they started school earlier that year) and showing up in a first day outfit that I totally loved with a new haircut and a tan. Isn’t it weird what we remember?

  4. My 1st day of school memory is kinda awful lol. My dad told me when I went to kindergarten that I would get spanked if I was bad. He used a paddle so when I went in I looked at the top of all the shelves for the paddles peeking out, just like his was… I still remember that VIVIDLY!!! :)))

  5. I don’t have a favorite first day of school memory… just the memories of general excitement over new school clothes, supplies, teacher, and seeing friends.

  6. Have so many first day good memories. It’s like a party in our house as everyone has on their “first day best.” Everything is neat and organized — backpacks brand new. An extra special lunch that will not be duplicated until next year. Special notes tucked away that probably don’t quite have their desired effect (kids get embarrassed SO easily). The first day of school is about all the possibilities. All the unknowns. I think I’m usually more excited than the kids.

    I follow both you and momagenda on twitter! And I desperately need to go on an organizing bender.

  7. My baby is also starting preschool this year so we have no first day of school memoires yet. Looking forward to taking a picture of her standing on our front steps with her cute little backpack on!!

  8. My favorite first day of school will be this year on Sept.8th when I get to drop both of my boys off for their first days of PreK. We are all looking forward to it.

  9. Look at your big boy! Precious! I cried so hard after watching my son walk through the door his first day of school you’d a thought Id been shot. In the end, of course, you’ll love all he learns and the ways he grows. Hugs!

  10. My favorite first day of school memories are waking up to the smell of my dad’s homemade cinnamon rolls and him waking us up singing silly songs.

  11. #1 – My best memories are more from all of the back to school supply shopping, and then getting all my stuff organized in my backpack or locker. #TypeA

  12. I remember the first day of my Freshman year. It’s not my favorite memory but definitely my most memorable one. I wore this cute dress I got from the Gap. I was so excited to wear it and thought I looked so cute. At lunch some senior girls, who were fortunately my friends, told me to close my legs because they could see my panties. I guess I was too much of a tomboy for that cute dress. 🙂

  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🤢So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
  • On our way to get the other three. We really loved spoiling Wallace this week and living that one baby life for a bit. I think he's bored of us now, though.
  • So thankful for my mom who has the energy and patience to not only watch these three but to take them to the beach all by herself. Like, that's not even something I'd attempt. She's such a badass.
  • Oh yes we did turn this #joovyspoon into a #stlblues mobile! I'm in love with the idea of personalizing one of our fav baby things this way! Must confess it was Scott's idea, but I ran with it and came up with some other ideas in today's blog post. PLUS!!! @joovy is giving away one Spoon walker (US only). Link in bio!
  • Managed to distract him from his fever for a bit with some snacks and a spoon in the Nook highchair @joovy sent. It folds up super compact so I'm hopeful it will work well in the RV. #joovynook
  • Of course he'd get his first fever the week we sent the other three to NaNa's and planned to be super productive. #babydontcare we have a house to sell. Snuggles come first. ❤
  • Arlo grew a little.
  • Another day, another house, another nap. Nothing, not even NaNa, can keep him from his love for sleep from 3-5 pm. #loloyolo
