1st Day of School

Today was the first day of school for the 2011-2012 school year.  Mackaylan was so excited about getting back into the swing of things. A new teacher.  New friends.  New school supplies.  And most importantly… new clothes!!  Last night when I was tucking Mackaylan  into bed I said, “It’s funny to think that I am tucking you in as a Kindergartener, but you will wake up a 1st grader.”  In pure amazement she looked up at me with her big blue eyes and said, “Wow! It’s magic!!”  I just love this little girl, her attitude, and take on life. 

This morning was very uneventful.  All the girls were up, fed, dressed, and out of the house by 6:50AM.  Pretty impressive, huh?!  We even had time for a few quick photos before we left the house.

Last night at the grocery store Mackaylan picked out an apple for Mr. Pack, her new teacher.  She wanted to take him a head of cabbage, but I convinced her that an apple would be the best choice for this occasion! :)

And I think this smile sums it up:  1st grade is going to be fabulous!
