Grade 1 - 1st Day !

Look who couldn't wait for school to start!! No tears this morning. (OK, there were a few yesterday when reality kicked in that it was our last day together and....um......Mommy gets to be home all day with the......baby and not her. But she sucked it up and got on with it. Feel the fear and do it anyway, right?) That's my girl. My big girl!

It was a race to get to the door.

"Oh, ok, I'll wait for l'il sis and even help her down the stairs - ahem.....Mom says I'm great!"

OK - but excuse me - is this (above) not an absolutely adorable picture? (Click on it to enlarge.) Pinch me - are these really my kids? (Just get me a spoon.)

(Umm.....if anyone noticed that Daddy seems to have the same striped shirt on for the last three posts, I think, you'd be right. So I thought I'd mention I've been doing a lot of laundry lately.

No, really!

Can you see Dahlia in the throng? Just inside the gate.

School let out at 3:55 PM. My Dahlia had a great first day in Grade 1.
