First Day of School

Yesterday, we met her teacher.  The girlie vacillated between clingy and outgoing; the teacher seemed fine, if a little saccharine.

Today, she got on the bus without looking back - she climbed those stairs so quickly that I didn't even get the requisite photo with big yellow bus.

Sigh.

It's the beginning of a great adventure.


And now we've got thirteen years to save for college.

She looks ready to me! And, yeah, I tried the bus picture too and wasn't very successful either.

All Elem. teachers are overly saccharine. I think it is a job requirement to have that type of personality.

Wow, what a big day. And what a big girl. She's beautiful. And so stylish! I love the skirt.

Less than 45 minutes til we drop Briar off at school.
Sob.

When my twins went to kindergarten twelve years ago, I went in the house and right back to bed. I don't know what I'm going to do when I drop them at their schools one year from now. She is absolutely precious! Hope she has a fantastic day;) And you, too...

Such a cutie!

Look how coordinated she is! She'll be the style envy of the entire school.

Aunt Becky said...

She looks so grown up.

My first jumped on the bus without looking back, too. The moment I had been dreading for 5 years passed by in about 5 seconds.

Congratulations, mama.

Rowan's first day too, and Nathan accidentally took the camera to work with him! Can we fudge the bus shot tomorrow? (I found an old manual with film, we'll just never develop it!)

I think saccharine is in the job description of Kindergarten teacher.

i think all teachers of young children seem a bit saccharine to adults, making them just perfect for kids.

she's adorable!

good to see that the backpacks are bigger than the kids in the US too. :-)
