It’s that time of year again! If your house is anything like mine during the first week of school…I feel your pain. Pure chaos and excitement all at the same time! 😉 Here are my cute girls on their first day with their back to school signs!
Our middle daughter, Lexi started kindergarten today! Having a late birthday and waiting a whole extra year, this sweet girl could not be more excited that today has finally come. And look at the sassy leg pop!
I had great intentions of using the super cute first day of school chalkboard from the Target dollar spot that I posted about previously, but we used it for my oldest a couple years ago and completely forgot to remove the chalk pen. I did some googling and tried to find a way to get it off easily. Turns out rubbing alcohol works wonders…so good that it took the paint off too. Haha!
Sooo, on to plan B…I took a design I made a birthday stat board for my youngest daughter’s 1st birthday and made some adjustments so it could be used as a first day of school poster. I sent it to print at Costco and picked up a few hours later! (You could also just print it at home, but we were out of ink and I was on a time crunch)
What do you think?!
I was going to put it in a cute frame I had lying around but the text in the picture was too close to the edge and didn’t look so hot. It was a little too flimsy to just hold by itself, so I just took the cardboard that comes in the envelope with the photo print from Costco, cut it down to size and used a little double sided tape and voila!

Kayleigh started 7th grade earlier in the week. She is in that in-between stage of I still want to be a kid, but I’m too cool for that at the same time. Instead of a first day poster, I did a letterboard sign for her. Super simple, but I love it! And let’s be honest, letterboards are pretty awesome! They have really become popular! You can find the letterboard that I used here.
With the two older girls in school, it’s nice to have some one-on-one time with the youngest, Alyssa. Hope everyone had a great back to school week!
