Well, here she is ready for her first day of "big school" as she calls it. All day everyday! She went with not even a worry or concern. We dropped her off at the door, kissed her goodbye and then she turned to wave. My brave, big girl! She loves it and I am so happy....it makes me feel less guilty for all my free time! The kids were off to school and the parents were smiling with excitement. We all then got together for a Back to School Brunch.
My partner in crime, Annette and I co-hosted a back to school brunch for some of our friends that morning. We started with Mimosas.
We set up my back porch for our gathering.
Then we spread out the food for everyone to enjoy. We had a ham, cheese and potato breakfast casserole, cheese grits, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit and a almond pear cream cheese torte. YUMMY! With the mimosas in hand, not one seemed to be looking for the tissue box. There was nothing but smiles.
Here are some pics of the Bunch at Brunch!
We had a great time that morning and then went off to enjoy our first day of quiet.
When Shelby returned home that day from her first full day of school she had a balloon and cupcake surprise. As you can see from the smile it was a good one. Well, we have one full week under our belts and she asks to go to school every morning. I hope it lasts for the entire year. I hope all your little ones have a great first day, too.
