1st Grade - Here I Come!

Shaelyn started 1st Grade today! We went to school yesterday for visit day. She got to meet her teacher and find her room. She is at a new school this year so I also took her around to see the gym, art room, etc.. Her room is right next to the door to the playground - great for quick exits to the toys! She was excited to go - she wanted to sleep in her clothes but I guess I talked her out of that. She thought that it was also pretty cool that she gets to ride the bus with Chelsea (not so sure how Chelsea feels on that one) So here I am, all alone today. (sorry, Cheri!) It seems extremely quiet but I know that soon they will be home and the noise level will increase!

She's got her own desk and locker this year!
Last week I was talking to her about school and saying how she would be going every day this year. Later in the week she asked if she would be going to school on Saturdays. I guess I should have clarified that more for her.

Yeah for Shaelyn! I can't believe she is in 1st grade already. It will make things different around your house.

Oh, Terri.

She is just absolutely precious. What a cutie. That pic of her in front of her locker is just adorable.

Jack starts pre-K in a couple of weeks. I could cry.

Hope you have some fun today enjoying that quiet. You could come over here. It's blissfully noisy ALL DAY LONG!!

Glad you're enjoying some quiet!

Hope you are both having good days at school- Chelsea and Shaelyn.

Shaelyn looks excited about her first day. I hope she has a great year in the first grade!

They grow up way too fast don't they? I find that year before School flies by. She looks happy and proud there with her bag. Very cute
