We have a 1st grader!!! This morning was Madeline's first day of school. Summer couldn't have gone by fast enough for her, she was ready to go back to school!
She's grown so much since last year. (And so has our shrub in the planter :)
Put a special note in her lunch to bring a smile to her face at lunchtime.
Giving Daddy a kiss goodbye. She's such a Daddy's Girl.
She was super chipper this morning. It's still dark out but her bus comes to pick her up at 6:58am. When I woke her up this morning, still half asleep she said, "it smells like an airport morning...yawn". I thought it was funny she said that. Many times we'll take super early morning flights and she's always excited to wake up early for them.
Getting off the bus at school. Last year I drove to her school for the first 2 weeks to meet her getting off her bus because she would cry and be so worried. Not this year - she was super confident and all smiles!
She remembered from "back to school" night exactly where her new classroom was. Plus she knows it because it's the "puppy dog room", her teacher decorated the room in a dog theme.
She found her cubby hole right away and hung up her backpack.
And was super excited that this year she gets her very own school desk. Last year the kindergarteners sat 4-5 to a table. She got right to work at writing her name and coloring. So proud of our baby girl!
