Grace started Kindergarten yesterday. I was so happy for her to finally get to follow in her big sister’s footsteps and head off to school every day. She has been waiting so many years – it was hard on my mom heart, though. She came home quite pleased with her new friend success rate, then sat down at her grandma’s kitchen table and wrote out cat, mat, rat, and sat. She packed up her paper and said she wanted to take it to show her teacher the next day – yep, that sounds about right. Warm up time is all of 10 seconds and she is off! Olivia started third grade and was all smiles. This was the first year that she didn’t feel nervous or cling to me for dear life. I am so proud of the confident little girl she has become. She gave me some extra snuggles at bedtime and was chatting a mile a minute about all the ins and outs of third grade. I love love seeing her like this. Little Addie is anxiously awaiting the start of the preschool year and I’m working out this new schedule – it’s such an exciting time, the beginning of a new school year. The girls obliged to all the first day of school photos I could squeeze in before we hopped in the car.
I made some printable “chalkboard signs” for the first day of school. Couldn’t resist the trend! I know a lot of peeps have already headed back, but just in case you still have another precious week or two of summer vacation, you can download the chalkboard signs below – just click on the grade level you need, save the image that opens up, and print! And best wishes for an amazing school year!
