The main entrance to our home sees a lot of action on busy school mornings: shoes, socks, backpacks, coats, and HURRY, don't forget your library books! Ever since we started the wild and wonderful ride that is kindergarten, I've been intending to complete this project. Six months later, I've crossed it off my list. It only took four fun elephant hooks and a length of reclaimed barn wood that I sanded and stained one weekend afternoon while the boys played with buckets and scrap wood in the front yard.
Now we are working on remembering to use the hooks when we get home from school. Maybe by the time school ends in June, we'll be up to speed. A good start for first grade!
