The all-important backpacks.
SIDE VIEW and STRAIGHT ON:
And here we are.
Halle, the mighty 1st-Grader standing in front of Washington El.
Is this the door opportunity knocks on?
Wyatt had fun helping big sister find her seat.
Oh, and he just had to wear his backpack, too!~
Here is Mrs. M.
Remember how much you idolized your elementary school teachers???
I wanted to grow up to look just like and be just like my first-grade
It was probably disruptive, but I couldn't resist:
I snuck in one last picture after the bell rang and class started.
There's our A-student!
Day 2: Riding the bus to-and-from:
I love how she looked that morning! I wish I would have gotten a better picture without the glare of the sun! Her bus stop is super-convenient, being just at the end of our street. It was a leap of faith for this over-protective mommy to let her baby be driven back and forth by really a stranger on a bus that potentially could be occupied by a few children with values that may be less than ideal, but it's been a good growing experience for us both. Mostly me (let's be honest). She's doing great walking home by herself (with Mom watching out the window like a hawk!) and has even told me about when the "older kids" were being bullies or vulgar and how she chose to change seats closer to the front.
I breathed a sigh of relief.
That's my girl.

Talking to daddy and telling him all about school!
