Back to School 2014 {DIY Chalkboard First Day Of School}

Today was the first day of school in our house. It was full of extra excitement with it being a new school in a new state. Mia was beyond excited to get back to learning and to make lots of new friends in her Pre-K class.

I continued the tradition of a First Day of School Chalkboard just like last year. My DIY Chalkboard and chalk are a perfect for commemorating the big day.You can see the other chalkboard posts HERE and HERE.

Can you believe how much she has grown and changed since last year? I cannot tell you how excited she was to wear school clothes instead of a uniform. Not to mention how cute she looks in her first day outfit.

Her first day seemed to be a success. Drop off was a breeze this morning. This afternoon's pickup was a different story. I learned that I need to arrive much earlier to avoid the never ending pickup line. It was completely a little chaotic.

Anyone else excited for school to resume?


  1. She is adorable! Here's hoping she really does become a princess when she grows up by meeting the perfect prince charming!

    1. Thank you! I'm hoping she decides to go with her alternate choice of being a "baby doctor". :) Then she can find prince charming lol

  2. It looks like she has gotten a lot taller. Still totally adorable though!

  3. My kids are still to young for school I cant wait till they are in school!

  4. This chalkboard is AWESOME! Can't believe Summer is coming to a close so quickly. Here in Texas we still have until August 25 before school starts back up.

  5. That is a really cute idea. My daughter would get a huge kick out of it.

  6. I miss the first day of school when my kids were little. Now I have one out of school and one going to graduate next year. These are times you won't forget.

  7. Wow! Is it really back to school already? Can't believe how fast Summer has just flown by!
