Every year, since our kids were in Kindergarten, I have taken a photo of them in their cubbies. Looking back at them, they are so small those first few years.
This last year, with much protest, I forced our son to once again climb into his cubby. He is in 5th grade and over 5 foot tall, so he barely fits!
I absolutely love having these photos and have put them on notice that I will be taking them each year until they graduate, like it or not! Why not think of a fun image that you can capture each year as they grow up? :) It will be well worth the protest, I promise!

My daughter came up with the best idea to save her 2 1/2 year old twin boys artwork! They do some kind of art project nearly every day, and the papers were really beginning to pile up at home!
My son got married and left dozens of StarWars and other collectible cars, toys and beloved things from his childhood jammed into a crate. I wraped each one individually in a brown lunch bag and taped the top shut.
My earliest memories of my grandmother are connected to her busy with some kind of needlecraft. She was keen on sewing, quilting, and crocheting.
On the first day of school, make sure you take a photo of your child before they leave the house. On the last day of school, take a photo also so you can see how much they have progressed physically as well as educationally!
If you have things that are special to you because they were made by someone important to you, like knitted items or kids school projects, snap a photo of it and file it in a special album.

This was our oldest daughter's first day of Kindergarten. She's been a "Daddy's Girl" from the moment she was born and this day was no different. She had Daddy's hand tight as we walked her into her first day of school.
My husband is always being funny. It was my daugther's birthday and he wanted to be Big Bird, take a look!
Kids say the darnedest things and it can be great to preserve those funny little sayings for future reference. Keep a child's quotes in a journal, so you can look back and laugh at the hilarious things your children said when they were younger.
