Today marks my daughter’s first day of 1st grade.
I am a little sad- and I am a little excited. Sad to see how fast my babies are growing up–and excited for her to learn and experience new things. She loves school, much like I did.
Since both of my kids will be in school this year–I have some lofty goals of the things I will be able to get done– although, my son will only be in preschool- so that will be half days, 4 days a week.
It’s more time than I have ever had by myself as a mom though–so, we shall see what happens. I might just cry for the first week 😉
But…for now, I have 15 more days til preschool starts! 🙂
I am really excited about Alexis’ teacher- she is young, and seems like a ton of fun! Her name is Mrs. Dance–see…even her name is fun!
Anyway- Alexis and I made Mrs. Dance a wreath for her classroom….and then, I made a video showing you how to make one too (plus, I needed a new Fall wreath for my door)!
I used the DCWV Grade School Stack to make a couple quick embellishments- as well as a stamped image (crayon box) The chalkboard, I picked up at Joann’s and stamped it with a soon-to-come-out Pink by Design stamp and white staz-on ink!
To get the perfect colors- I used the DCWV Harvest Gathering Stack as a reference to choose fabric colors!
