Taylor started back to school last Thursday! She was super excited to get to First Grade and see all of her friends! I was super excited to get one of the kids out of the car for my commute - they pretty much fight constantly, and it really wears you down!
Taylor picked out her outfit the night before, and insisted on wearing not only the coordinating necklace, but a scarf as well. The girl LOVES to accessorize! She was also super excited to wear her Sketchers Twinkle Toes Groovy Baby shoes - every little girls dream! They are pretty much every annoying thing they could do to shoes rolled up into one pair - glitter, rhinestones, lights, embroidered peace signs...you get the point!
We are super lucky in our schools as we do not have to provide any school supplies, just a backpack. Taylor picked a Barbie bride backpack, and in all it's pink and girly glory, it's actually pretty cute. The dress even has a piece of fabric that is loose (which requires the backpack to be hung on a hook by the door out of the reach of the ornery kittens).
Taylor loves riding the bus, and was ready to hop on when it arrived! I reminded her that I would like at least one picture this year, so she didn't sprint up the stairs and disappear like last year! We found out that Taylor's regular bus driver, George, had experienced a heart attack during the week was having bypass surgery instead of taking the kids to their first day of school. Taylor is so sweet, she has been praying for George each night!
Taylor had a great first day of school, although she was pretty tired when she got home! She announced that she didn't have any homework, I think she was a little disappointed, lol!
Stay tuned later this week, Trace starts school on Wednesday. If anyone wants to hang out with me while I cry all day, let me know!
