first day of school

First Day of School!

It was the first day of school for Avery and I today and it was rather bittersweet.While we were both excited about our classes, it was something to get used to, to not be together in the same class. I know that I am very lucky to have gotten to be her teacher even for one year and it is good for her and blah blah, but I kinda like the kid and don’t mind having her with me all the time. ;)

But anyways, the back to school fair came this morning and got her a backpack and a sippy cup! It is hard to take good pictures at 6 am I have discovered.

Especially of an excited, just woke up and moving child.

 Crazy hair!

All dressed up, hair controlled and on the front porch on the first day!… with a waffle.

She is so cute!

I made a backdrop at school to get pictures of all the students in my class and then I thought it would be fun to get shots of the rest of the classes too… and Avery falls in that second group :).

Yeah, she is like “mom we did this today already” oh well.

We have a garment rack that I just taped a bunch of pieces of black crepe paper to,

and added the ‘back to school’ banner I made for my mantel, that tutorial is HERE.
