It’s the first day of school. I’m so nervous for everyone! I hope they have a wonderful day and come home excited for the new year.

I saw these felt pocket hearts and think they’re adorable. You slip them in your kids pockets when you send them off, so they can carry a tangible bit of love and comfort while they’re away. I think they’re sweet. How-to here.

Do you do anything special for your kids on the first day? Maybe slip a joke into their lunchbox?

P.S. — Here’s a post about our school experience in France. And here’s another one.
