Back To School!

School shopping.....CHECK. Haircut.....CHECK. Back to school night.....CHECK. Outfit picked out.....CHECK. Backpack ready.....CHECK. Fathers Blessing.....CHECK. First Day Of School Here.....CHECK!!!!!

Today was Addy's first day of 2nd grade! She has been so excited! We had back to school night on Tuesday and she met her teacher, Mrs.Berkey. All she kept saying is that, "She is so nice!" This morning went great. Wonder how long that will last??? Here she is ready to go!

It is tradition that on the first day of school we have cookies and milk right when they get home. We do it more frequently, but on the first day of school it is a must! She told us all about her day while eating yummy cookies. Then it was homework time. It was a little bit of a struggle, not sure if it was harder to keep her on task or to keep Dawson from continually distracting her. I think he really missed her.
For dinner it is always tacos on the first and last day of school as well! A tradition in my family that we all just love. Addy had a great day and I have no doubt it will be a great year as well!

So cute! She looks adorable. Remind me to tell ya about her message she left on my phone--she was wondering what bus number they are on. It's hilarious!

What fun it is to go back to school when you're a kid! I can't imagine how fun it will be as a mom to send your kids back:) I bet it makes it even better to know that she's having a great time and loves it so much. What a cutie!
