So the first day of School arrived last week....and it was everything we hoped it would be. The weather was nicer than last year, so the photos were a bit easier to nab.
Sugar Bear was excited to use her new backpack. She loves the colors of it. She is NOT a fan of pink....so she put up with her backpack all last year, but lucky for her....the puppy chewed it up towards the end of the year. So....a new backpack was in her future...and she loves it.
By the time we got to her school, the sun was shining.....and there was so much excitement in the air.
Sugar Bear, who usually sticks close to mama's side in situations like this....kept running on ahead, and I'd have to call her back for a picture.
She looked like such a "big girl" (sob.....) walking up the hall with all the different age groups. There are approximately 224 kiddos in her school, which houses Kindergarten-eighth grade.
She was excited to find her locker, and show me how she can open it all by herself, and put her stuff in. I was really proud of how independent she was being.
She kept looking forward to her friend's arrival. Soon we headed out to morning recess. This is before school starts.
It was so beautiful out, and Sugar indulged me in a few more pictures. Gosh I love this kid! ♥
It is sooooooooooooooooooooooo going to be a good year.....and I think she knows it. :)
I love this shot of Sugar Bear and her friend "L". They are so darn cute together. I am thrilled that they are in the same class.
Finally, the bell rang.....the kids lined up by class.....and away my big First Grader went.
And now we have 5 school days under our belt....and it hasn't disappointed yet. :)
