We had our first "official" day of school today. Over the last week Norah has begged to do some school, so we did lots of extra projects. She couldn't wait for today - which cracks me up because we have really done stuff all summer. I just felt like we needed a day to say was our first day of school. I think the day after Labor Day is perfect - I think we will try to stick with that at least fora couple of years.
This is the color matching game that Lucy used. I colored each lamb a different color, glued them to cardstock and laminated it. Then I colored the end of the clothespin with the same colors as the lambs. Lucy really got a kick out of opening and closing the clothespins. It was great for her fine motor skills.
All in all, it was a successful first day (minus the part of the day when neither of the girls napped).
