My oldest is going into school in a little over a month. She knows this and keeps asking if she can go to school yet. So im thinking of doing a countdown chain. This way she can cut off a link each day and she can see that as the links come off she is getting closer to going to school.

Sounds like a good idea.  :)

Madison was excited too, the first time she went to school.  Even now, she's missing her friends really bad.

I think she woukd like the chain idea as we have done something similar. When dh was away for his second deployment we made a chain to count up how many days daddy was away and then used the chain as homecoming decorations. I kept telling her the more links we added the closer it got to daddy coming home.
