Grace had a great first day of school and seems to really like her class and teacher!
As always we took Grace's picture on our front steps. This year we added a sign with her teacher's name, the year and grade. I got this idea from my friend Carrie and I think that it is such a great way to document the new year!
Grace was very excited to receive her school cone. It's always a highlight of the first day of school.
The school's mascot is an alligator so I always try to include something with an alligator (I'm stockpiling alligator school supplies). The book is a really sweet book called, I Like Being Little by Charlotte Zolotow and it describes Grace to a T. Grace always tells us that she doesn't want to grow up because she loves being a child. This book addresses that in an utterly charming way and has a really sweet and enduring ending.
Off she goes to another year. Where oh where has the time gone?
