First day, first grade

(The above pictures are Maggie - - the one on the left was the first day of kindergarten last year, the one on the right is the first day of first grade this year.)

I can't believe that the summer is over already and school is back in session. Maggie started first grade yesterday. Where did my scared little kindergartener go? Taking her place this year was a brave 1st grader who was disappointed to find out that the first day of school was only a half day. She even came home a little dejected because they had not been given any homework yet. Both yesterday and today, she has fallen into bed dead tired at 7:30PM. I guess first grade can really take it out of you!

She's looking SO grown up! I love the picture on the bench - you'll have to do that each year. I can just see the one of her in her cap and gown......

I remember those first day of school pictures. We even have some 8mm film (no audio) of Kraig, Kim and I running for the school bus! Ah, the good 'ol days.

Be careful, nostalgia is infectious, and there is no know cure. Practice turning around quickly, it tends to lessen the shock value of how quickly they get away from you.
