First Day of School!!!

Today is Kayla's first day of 1st grade. She was not excited until she met her teacher yesterday. Her name is Ms. Walton and she seems very nice. Hopefully it will be a great year!

Kayla was so excited this morning she could barely eat her breakfast.

We walked to school this morning because the traffic is always terrible the first few days.

Our neighbors and good friends Libby and Mallory walked with us.
The first day of school is so much more fun when you get to start the day with your friends!

Kaylie, Libby, and Kayla ready to see their new class!

She is growing up so fast - no more cubbies!

This is Kayla with her new teacher, Ms. Walton. She has NEVER let me take a picture of her with her teacher on the first day of school. I have a great feeling about this teacher.

Now that they are in 1st grade they get to have a morning recess. When they get to school they can play outside until the bell rings at 8:20. Here they are heading back to class.

Kayla thought I was done taking pictures. I could not resist getting a shot of her at her desk. I can't believe she is in first grade!

I was trying to get Caroline to do a "hooray they are back in school" happy dance with me, but I am pretty sure she just thought I was crazy!

I hope that she has a great first day. I can't wait to hear all about it.

Love the pictures. Walking to school with friends is fun. I bet Caroline is not as happy as Mommy that school has started again.

Can't believe the school year has begun!!!

It's hard to believe she is in 1st grade now. I can't wait to hear about how her first day was!
