2nd Graders Are Sweet!


Back to school has been so much fun for Miss Maddy! Even though her answer to everyone who asked her if she was ready for school to start, was an emphatic NO, she has really been enjoying it. Since the school year has just started (and my memory is so lame), I wanted to be sure and remember all the things that make 2nd grade and my 2nd grader so special.
  • 2nd grade girlfriends hold hands with each other -- so sweet!

  • And 2nd grade girls hold hands with their Moms too!

  • Having a cool eraser is very important.

  • 2nd graders love their teachers!

  • Flowery book covers are a necessary part of school supplies!

  • 2nd grade girls like to coordinate the color of their polo shirts with their friends.

  • 2nd graders are very social and excited to see their friends in the morning and have to arrive a little early to chat before school.

  • 2nd grade girls still like to snuggle with their Moms; and

  • 2nd graders want to do what is right, and above all, avoid the principal's office! :)

Love the list! My Grace agrees with most of them, but she said she likes to coordinate her polo shirt colors with Mommy's shirt (much to Mommy's chagrin). Oh well, this too shall pass.

2nd graders are soooo cute! Especially yours! : )

I agree!! Dick and I used teach a group of about 25 second graders at Calvary Baptist in Lexington.

What dolls..they all loved to listen to the bible stories and had the sweetest most innocent faces. It's an age when they start to really get "it".

They are my all time favorite age!

Oh how sweet! What I love about second graders is that they are becoming indpendent little people. They can read, tie their shoes, and follow directions.

But that comes from a teacher. :-)

The change from first to second is just amazing!
