First grade starts tomorrow. I gave Grace four choices of outfits to wear to school and she chose orange polka dot shorts with a matching top. We tried it on just to make sure everything fit and was functional for an active day at school. When I told Grace that I wanted to take first grade photos she said, "okay" and ran outside. In the time it took me to get over the shock (that Grace was so willing to pose), gather the camera, a chair, and a book she wrote this on the driveway:
I think she remembered when we did this photo shoot last year for kindergarten!
I had another plan for this year, but her writing was so cute and she was so proud of it that I went with it. (We are working on Silent "e" and "grade" is spelled a lot like "Grace" so she got that part right.) The sun was directly overhead so we worked with the shadows to get these cute first grade memories.
We are so excited about the new adventure ahead. Grace's teacher, Mrs. Harris, seems wonderful and I know she is going to help Grace grow and learn so much this year. But....I still want that "stay little" potion. Six is such a fun age. I wish it would go on and on for a long time.
