The long awaited day finally arrived!
This girl hardly slept at all the night before.
4th grade is a very exciting year, ya know.
This guy was a little apprehensive, but suuuuuper excited for his first day.
Outside his classroom.
Getting off the bus at the end of a loooong day.
There were hugs & smiles all around.
Things to remember:
- A special breakfast of donuts, which Daddy brought home after his all-night shift.
- While waiting to go inside the school, I watched a small boy climb out of a car, clutching his plastic Walmart bag of school supplies. I caught a glimpse of a scrapbook page inside his bag, so I knew he must be a kindergartner, too. He was all smiles, and waved to the driver, then turned and spotted the crowd of kids & parents waiting for the morning bell. His face fell as he took in all the strange-to-him people, and I was so glad to see the principal spot him right away, and guide him on where to wait & what to do. Poor little guy!
- Walking into the house after work & soaking in the SILENCE that greeted me. Even the dog was acting like it was weird.
- J talking about the Jitter Bug Juice they had as their end-of-day snack. Sprite, Crystal Light, and rainbow sherbert. "Mama, you HAVE TO keep this recipe".
Thanks to Grandma & Grandpa for the new outfits!
