It is fun to try out different designs on the chalkboard and to make different signs for each child. This has worked for me so far because my two daughters have started school on different days. I will have to figure out something different for next year when both my girls will be starting school at the same time.
After I made my daughter’s first day of second grade sign, I had a space after the word GRADE so I put a little weird squiggle. That stupid squiggle bugs me so bad. Now I wish I would have thought to put the year like I did in my younger daughter’s chalkboard sign.
We are off to a good start of school this year! Last year my oldest was nervous about everything and this year she is all smiles. My youngest is so happy that two of the girls in her class have pretty names: Pearl and Julie (I am sure she thinks it is “Jewel-y”). She also did report that she has the longest hair in the class. So it looks like things are going pretty grand for her as well. Fingers crossed that things continue going well!
