We have practiced with my daughter, on how to call 911 for an emergency if a situation were ever to arise. In our kitchen, we have a large cabinet that we have posted some signs up for her to have. She can read very well now, so that is not a problem. Inside the large … Continue reading Emergency board for kids.

End of school countdown.
A week from today is Hadley's last day of Kindergarten! We made a little countdown chain until summer starts. Summer technically doesn't officially start until June, but in my mind summer starts when the kids are done with school. As a kid, that's how I remember it! The sun was made in Photoshop, and cut … Continue reading End of school countdown.
