First Day of School

Well Piper is a first grader! She had a fitful night of rest and ended up in our room around 5 am. She said her tummy hurt when she woke up this morning. I told her she had back to school butterflies and she informed me that she was just hungry :) She is not a morning person, much like her Momma, but she did pretty well this morning. She looked so cute all dressed in her uniform with her bookbag stuffed full of supplies.

She walked into class and started to set up her desk. After we checked her in we walked her to the cafeteria for breakfast and told her we had to leave. She got a bit upset but recovered quickly when she found a friend from church. Now I am home in my quiet house waiting for the day to pass so I can hear all about it. As much as I have been looking forward to school starting back, I am missing my little girl today. I am sure as soon as she and Dax start fighting this afternoon I will be reminded as to why I am glad school is back in session.
