Have your family get out old photo albums and try to guess who each person is and how they might be related to you.
Ask questions, remember silly stories, re-connect with loved ones.
Most of our photos are digital now, if you don't have albums, go through photos on the computer. If you have some from this school year, go through with your child, reflect on the friends and fun stories from Sandy Hill.

Make the Me doll look like your child. Give them the same color hair with yarn or fabric, add buttons for eyes., draw on a mouth and nose. Find some of your child's old clothes to dress your Me doll in. Here is our Me doll from 17 years ago. As you can tell, he has been very loved.
