1st Day of 1st Grade

Yesterday was our (yep it's a family affair {!}) 1st day of 1st grade. I survived...errr I mean she survived! Did I get anything accomplished? No sir/ma'am. But I didn't cry! There is just something extremely exciting about that 1st day of school.....new shoes, freshly cut hair, new backpack stuffed with new school supplies, new lunch box with choice of favorite lunch stuffed inside, meeting new friends and teachers, and a fresh attitude for a fun year of learning!


{GASP....it was humid in TN and my camera was extremely foggy with the outside pics}
Emery cannot wait to be at Spalding with her big sister.....so she too had to stuff her backpack with "stuff" and brought it along!
Mr Fogg, the principal, who talks to the kids in a Donald Duck voice and the kids ADORE him.....so we stopped for a quick picture before she started trucking down the hall with her family barely keeping up!
Her teacher is Mrs Smith and she was quite proud of herself for having learned how to spell her name by memory! This kid has her own style, she has loved wearing ties for about a year now and when she spotted these high tops she stated "now these are my fashion"!! I love her own little style she adds to her uniform.....gotta spice it up somehow right?!!
extremely proud daddy who, in the nicest way, was pushing his "hovering" wife out of the classroom.....I had every right to stay in until the last bell rang right??
1st Day of 1st Grade! She wasted NO time in getting started on a worksheet that was on her desk.....I feel very fortunate that she is VERY excited to learn, may that energy stick with her for life!
ANNNDDDDD just one more squeeze for her momma
The girl was passed out asleep in the car before 8pm! She had a GREAT DAY! So although we are a bit sad to say good bye to the fun fun summer {note: I have some blogging catch up! Watch out!} we are excited to say HELLO to learning lots of new things in the coming school year and getting back into a ROUTINE!! That "R" word just gives me warm fuzzy feelings!!
