Here is my final getting-ready-for-school decoration for this year. I decided to put the calendar in the family room, and I set it up for September, since that is when we "officially" start school. So much can be taught from this set-up: days of the week, months of the year, weather facts, odd & even numbers, holidays, etc.!
Since our four boys are so close in age, we decided to give them our big bedroom upstairs, and we took the little bedroom. This arrangement also left us with an extra bedroom downstairs for guests. My parents wanted to help us with bunk beds and bedding, so we chose a woodland animal theme...appropriate for where we live!
Becca finally talked us into getting her a pet. She wanted either a veiled chameleon, a leopard gecko, or a bearded dragon. We went with the bearded dragon, since they thrive on human interaction. This little lizard is going to get a lot of interaction!
