Most nights at the dinner table, I ask my kids about their day. Even though the questions are pretty simple ~ "Tell me one thing that made you smile today", "What was one thing that you were proud of?", "Tell me one thing that made you sad", etc. ~ their answers will vary day to day and they actually give me a pretty good indication of how things are going with both their classes and their friends.
For the first day of school this year, I wanted to capture some of their answers as a little memory page. I made a space to put one of the "first day photos" I took before they left for school and included some of our regular dinner time questions as well as a few about their new grade.

Even though they're not too excited to start actual homework, they didn't mind sitting down with some new colorful BIC Atlantis® pens (and a plate of brownies) and recording a few thoughts about their first day.
Their responses are cute, colorful and the page will be a nice little keepsake to be filed away with their school work for the year.
Of course, after they finished their questions, I had my own First Day of School paperwork to fill out ( times three!). I didn't get to use a colorful pink or purple pen, just a regular black BIC Atlantis®, but there is something kind of exciting about some fresh new pens and a fresh new start to a new school year.
