Back To School Time Capsule Questions

My girl just kicked off her second year of preschool. Snapping photos this year was very different because I did so without being concerned about whether or not she was ready.

Kid couldn’t wait to start school again.

Can you tell?

I can’t believe how much changes in a year. Heck, I can’t believe how much changes in a summer. That’s why I thought it would be nice to have a little Back To School Time Capsule printable to share. (Download the full size version here.)

Nothing too complicated. A few questions that could be asked of a 3 year old or a 13 year old, along with a spot for a photo and the kiddo to write their own name. (Obviously that’s more precious and impressive at 3 than at 13, but a sweet keepsake at any age.)

I’m glad to have a little reminder of the conversation I had with my girl that revealed that she wants to be an Astronaut when she grows up, and would really like to try to master “doing a somersault into a donkey-kick” this year.

Well let’s get cracking on that, kiddo!

    I have to say I read the title of your post a little too quickly and thought your daughter had already been kicked out of preschool on her second day! Glad she’s eager to get back into the swing of things 🙂

      LOL! Gosh, I hope that kid doesn’t get kicked out!

    Cute idea! I did something like this for Father’s Day and I was so surprised at my 3 year old’s answers -a lot more than I thought he would say. I will try this too.
