Yesterday, she was a tiny baby, who refused to sleep unless I held her. An early talker, a late crawler, a baby ballerina, a preschooler, a kindergartener...
True, she is almost a year older than I was when I began first grade, due to the August 31 cut-off. Wow. She turns seven next month. SEVEN.
I took her shopping for one perfect back-to-school outfit on Tuesday. Wednesday morning, we woke early and went out for breakfast.
|Spinach and bacon souffle!|
|Little Sis is not a morning person.|
We found her new classroom. Three of her closest friends from kindergarten were already there.
|At her big girl desk.|
We have some books featuring first-graders to look at this week.
|Brand-new Pencils, Brand-new Books by Diane deGroat. HarperCollins, 2007. Princess Posey and the First Grade Parade by Stephanie Greene, illustrated by Stephanie Sisson. Puffin, 2011. A Pirate's Guide to First Grade by James Preller, illustrated by Greg Ruth. Feiwel & Friends, 2010.|
But first, we have that homework to tackle!
