We created our "Countdown to Kindergarten" paper chains today!
We did this for the first time last year, when Guy was gearing up for Kindergarten, and it was so much fun! Each day we remove a link from the chain until we reach the first day of school. That way the kids know how many days until school starts, and I am reminded to make the most of each moment with my kids!
This summer, we have a lot of fun family vacations and reunions to go to and even special visitors coming to see us here in Pennsylvania! So, we color-coded the weeks that we'll be at reunions or hosting family here...and even put links for special days, like the day we go for our ultrasound and Daddy's birthday.
The kids were in charge of counting how many days were on the calendar and converting the days into "links" of the chain, so there was counting, cutting, writing, figuring, color-coordinating, and stapling going on for this project.
It's a ton of fun...and Guy is now asking me...are we going to do this next year, and the next year, and the next year? We'll see sweetheart.
My little editor is reading over my shoulder, marveling at how I can type without looking at the keyboard (he wants to learn how) and wondering how the page moves up when I type.
He wants me to add this photo of him pointing to the chains that hang in our doorway. He wants me to type "It looks like I'm in Tron." :)
