Great idea for a keepsake. Have each teacher secretly sign "Oh, the Places You'll Go" from Pre-K to High School at the end of each year and give it to your child at graduation.

SO doing this for my kiddos someday... send "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss each year on the last day of school. Don't tell your kids and let them read years of messages on their graduation day! I started this with Bryce in playschool last year.

I'm a big fan of this breakdown on Santa. I appreciated the idea behind Santa as a child, but this letter from a child's parents just smashes the nail on the head for me. I dislike the idea of "robbing" the magic of Christmas from my children with "the truth", but with a message like this I don't feel as though I have to anymore. Awesome.

Starting in Kindergarten, put the child's graduation year on a large t-shirt. Take a picture each year with the same shirt to watch the child grow into the shirt. Display at graduation party!

This is an excellent idea - write a letter to your child every year on their birthday and give it to them when they go to college.
