Today was Kayla's first day of 2nd grade and to say she was super excited would not be an exaggeration. The girl woke up with a huge smile on her face and I don't think she has stopped smiling since! When she woke up I had a few items for her to take like a notebook since she loves to write stories or draw, a bright green pencil case along with some fun new pencils and erasers. We are very lucky that we don't have to buy anything for back to school except for the obvious backpack and lunch bag, the school supplies everything! Speaking of backpack and lunch bags, Kayla chose the peacock print from Pottery Barn Kids for her bags this year. I wasn't too sure if they were my favorite until we got them and I immediately agreed with her that they were adorable!
We were all up and ready early this morning to make sure we would not be rushed and would have plenty of time to take the yearly first day of school pictures by the front door. Kayla enjoyed it saying she can't wait to take the end of school year picture so she can see how much she grows!
I love, love, love her outfit. We both loved the dress as soon as we saw it and her sandals are such a pretty color.
We were about to leave and I told her I needed to get a picture real quick with my phone to send to daddy and she asked if she could throw up a peace sign. She's so cute, love watching her become her own little person.
When we were walking up to the school she kept saying "I wonder which friend I will see first?"
She spotted one little girl when we first got to the playground and they both ran to each other and hugged each other saying how much they missed one another. It was the cutest thing and made me tear up hearing their conversation and excitement seeing each other. After many hugs to all her friends we found her buddy Landon and I had to get a picture of them two. They have been good friends for the past 2 years and get along so well. We love him!
Soon it was time to go into the classroom and get situated.
After many kisses goodbye I finally left my big girl. When she got home today she said she had a great day and her teachers are really nice. I'm still in shock that Summer is officially over and it's going to take some getting used to not having both the girls home playing together all day but as of right now they happily playing my little ponies together just the way it should be!
