Twas the Night Before First Grade

This year is going to be much different from last year. She is used to spending her class day coloring, reading/looking at books, playing in centers, playing outside, etc. She learned a lot last year, but it was a fun year full of special activities just for the kindergartners. I have been told that first grade is the hardest year of elementary school. She will enter with some reading skills and end the year able to read chapter books, hopefully. I know she can do it. She is incredibly bright and I am not just saying that because I am her Mom ;) She needs to find her focus and have a teacher that allows her to be "Piper" but is also able to guide her and force her to follow through. I am excited for her and all that this year will hold for her.

Her lunch is packed and waiting in the fridge. She requested PB&J and vitamin water :) I put one of my special brownies in there as a special treat. Say a little prayer for our little girl. We are so proud of her and excited to see her grow up into this girl full of spirit and grace. She has a greatness in her that is so exciting to see come to the surface.

Final day of Summer fun

Yay, good luck Piper! I can't believe she's in "real" school now, wow! Sending hugs your way b/c I'm sure it will be an emotional day for everyone. ;) Post pics of from her first day too!

Wow, August is just so early to go back to school! That's crazy that Piper is starting 1st grade. She looks like she is ready to conquer the entire school or at the very least her class. A sassy kid like her will certainly not be boring to teach!

(By the way, call me Jules, call me Julie, either way. I've felt like I've known you for a long time, even though we never have met. Aren't blogs great? They give you the chance to catch up with old friends and make new ones at the same time. Tell Mitchy hi from Myke and I!)
