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!
