Make a Summer Memory Book..I saw this idea on Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. It would be a fun tradition to make little summer albums together as a family, on the weekend before school starts.  To remember all the fun you had!  I love this idea!  The memory book could be as simple or as elaborate as you like (patterned papers, photo mats, stickers…)

 Many people snap a quick first day of school picture with the kids dressed in their new school clothes. This year dress up this tired tradition by having the kids hold up a sign or a chalkboard showing off what grade they are starting.

Letter to my child: Some parents write a letter on the first day of school, which their child can read on the bus or during a free moment at school.

Your letter might offer encouragement or point out specific things your child did that made you proud. Consider saving a copy of each year’s letter for your child to reread at high school or college graduation.

Here is a fun printable you can add with that letter from the Back To School Fairy.

Happy Mobile Halloween From Blurb

Holiday 468x60 Proof 3 - Happy Mobile Halloween From Blurb

 With Halloween just around the corner, everyone will have hundreds of pictures of their kids on their phones. Blurb is launching a new mobile platform that allows you to make a photo book from your phone!

 Halloween is supposed to be about “scary,” but in reality, it’s a lot about “cute.” It’s about kids in costume, creative pumpkin art, and way too much sugar for everyone involved. Halloween is a holiday of sights and sounds. You’ll be taking photos and video that you’ll want to share that very night, but also keep forever. And, since you’ll likely be busy greeting trick-or-treaters, putting on costumes, and rationing candy, you need an easy way to capture the night’s events.

That’s where Blurb mobile comes in.

Blurb mobile is an app for the iPhone and iPad that lets you create sharable online stories—and turn those stories into beautiful 7×7 inch books. What’s a story exactly? Well, in the Blurb mobile world, it’s a sequence of photos and other media you capture on your phone. It can tell a very literal story—with beginning, middle, and end—or it can be a collection of photos.

Just take photos and video with the app, or import them from your camera roll (including those saved Instagram photos on your phone). You can add captions to your photos too. You can even record your little monsters saying “trick or treat,” and attach the audio track to your photo.

Want a printed version of your story? Of course you do. Blurb’s Small Square books start at $12.99 for a 20-page softcover, and shipping is just $3.99.

So, whether you lean toward the scary or the cute or some awesome combination of the two—share your stories on Halloween night on your favorite social media sites with Blurb mobile. And then in a few weeks, get a beautifully bound photo book that you can look at for many Halloweens to come.
