First Day of 2nd Grade!

We had a great trip up to North Georgia, and I’ll share some photos from the visit later this week. The girls started 2nd grade yesterday! The Granddad stayed over Sunday night since we got back so late, so he got to come with us for first day morning festivities. That crazy clown is the wonderful Mrs. S, teacher’s aide and traffic cop extraordinaire.

As I was putting the girls to bed tonight, Livvie told me she wished we could be stuck together. When I asked her how she'd go to school and I'd go to work if we were stuck together, she suggested we make velcro outfits, so we could become unstuck when needed. Now, there's a thought.

I always loved the first day of school! It was so exciting for so many reasons: getting to see friends after summer break, a new teacher, new boys to tease, maybe new clothes, surviving another grade...and this was in college too!!!!!

Such a cute photo of all of you, and so sweet Granddad was there.

Hope your visit with Aunt Livy went well :) And thank you for your sweet comment regarding my mother-in-law. Bittersweet day, and now I'm popped!

I ADORE these cute pictures!!!!
I'd love to have Mrs. S' job. You'd never have a bad hair day, but knowing me, I would trip in clown shoes.

when my boys were little, i thought, i could keep a much better eye on them if i put them in a velcor suit and made a velcro walled room. if i needed to go to the bathroom or cook dinner or some such, pick them up and stick them on the wall.

i like livvie's idea better.
