First Day of School Printable 2021-2022

Family / Tuesday, August 31st, 2021

The first day of school is one of those days we want to document with a photo. Having the kids hold a sign looks pretty cute, but it can also help when organizing photos later on (especially for moms like me who struggle to print and organize photos regularly). It’s usually the night before school starts when I sit down and start searching the internet for first-day-of-school printable signs. Since you’re here now, we may have something in common.

Last year, I didn’t create or post any signs. It was a strange year, and I’m not even sure I took photos on the first day of school. But it’s time to get back on track. This year, our youngest starts kindergarten. It is also the only year that our three kids will be in the same school and get to ride the bus together.

While I’m thrilled the kids are going to school in person and that they are getting to go together – it’s complicated. I admit to feeling a wide range of emotions tonight as I think through the reality that the baby is starting elementary school. There is a very good possibility I end up being the mom crying at the bus stop.

The possibility of emotions makes having signs printed the night before even more valuable.
