Today marked Maddy's first day of 4th Grade! She's been alternating between looking forward to seeing her friends again and worrying a little bit about her classroom. Even though she has some good friends in her room, her two bff's are both in the other 4th grade classroom and that has really concerned her. Reassurances that she'll see them at recess have helped a little bit.
One of her sweet friends yelled her name when she saw her this morning and gave her a great big hug.
I loved watching that and seeing the girls be so sweet!
We kept very busy on the last weekend before school with a trip to the pool, the miniature golf course, the zoo and visiting my Dad. And, of course, we had to shop a little. The stores called our names, after all. The bad thing about wearing a uniform is that those most adorable first day of school outfits are unnecessary. The good thing is that it really cuts down on morning decisions! :) Hmmmm -- what color polo to wear today . . . navy? white? yellow? green? Love that about uniforms! :)
Is it just me -- or is there something too cute about that backpack with her name on it! I love it! No more backpack mix-ups like happened last year!
Don't worry -- she put that silly Elmo in her backpack for the photos --
he did not go to school, but waited in the car!
Her sweet baby niece, Janie, loves Elmo and since Maddy loves Janie --
Maddy also loves Elmo all over again!
