the very first day


Sorry for the lack of posts - yesterday was Ruby's first day of First Grade! The day went really well - beginning with new friends & a new teacher, and ending with poolside popsicles & giggling girls. Another milestone, and many more tears (mine, of course).

I am pretty sure that is you sitting there in the first grade and not Ruby, that you made her stay home so as not to grow up. In which case, I really like your shoes. :)

That's a great looking 1st grader! I've seen tons (trust me) and they never look quite so put together and smart... yes definitely a brilliant face =D

1st grade is a great year! Have fun!

She looks so grown up! But, I must say, if you haven't already, it's time to whip out the rainbow outfit, she'd look so awesome in those legwarmers.
