Last Day of School {{ Free Printable}}

At the beginning of the school year I made some free printable first day of school signs marking the occasion for all the other sentimental (sappy) parents out there that want to capture each step their child(ren) take into the real world

I also made end of the year printable signs so that I (you) could also show the difference a school year makes as they grow. This was my first school year ever as a parent and I can honestly say that her going to preschool this year was a wonderful learning experience for her AND me. I had to let go of her a little and trust some other people to guide her and mold a little piece of her, I believe they did a great job.

This is a side by side shot of her as she started the school year and finished the school year. She looked more enthusiastic at the beginning of the year and I can say that as the year went on she lost her ability to look at the camera and smile. It's a battle of sorts to even get a decent shot of her smiling so this is what I have.

We will be working on her smiling at the camera over the summer break!!!!!

She grew more than a few inches this year, learned how to interact with other kids, made some friends and started the process of becoming more than Mommy's little girl. She is now her own person, strong willed, smart, sweet and still mischievous as ever!!

She's my little Sami Jams!

This is what the printable looks like.

It can be printed out on a standard sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper, although I choose to print it on a sturdier card stock...because I'm cheesy and I keep them as keepsakes!

You can print the various versions from {{HERE}}

If you were some of those that used these in the begining of the school year, I would love to see the side by sides of how your children have grown through the year!!

Post them on m wall on Facebook!!

I'm looking forward to doing some new projects this Summer as I try to stay out of the hot kitchen and start working on some other areas of creativity I have found interest in through this past year!!

Hope you enjoy!!
