Second day of first grade

Here are some photos of our second day of first grade.  I love this cute sweater.  Although I don't really get it.  It's a sweater .... but it has short sleeves.  Why would they make a short sleeved sweater?  Shouldn't sweaters have long sleeves?  If it is cold enough to wear a sweater,  shouldn't you be wearing long sleeves?  Won't your arms be cold?  And on the other .... errr - arm ..... If it is warm enough for short sleeves, won't you be hot in a sweater??  That's my thought to ponder today..... on to the pics!

Second favorite "go to" pose.

How cute are those shorts - right?  And those completely impractical for running around at recess but adorable shoes?

Goofing off while waiting to leave for school.


I hope that her second day is as great as her first!

To celebrate the end of summer, tonight TinyDancer and EasternStar are packing their bags and heading to Grandma and Grandpa's house.  Tomorrow they are headed to the track to make us some money! bet on the ponies see the horseraces while RainbowBaby, Stranger, and I get to make up for goofing off during the past few weeks and catch up on laundry and clean.

First day of first grade!

Yesterday was TinyDancer's first day of 1st grade.  Can you believe how grown up she looks in her uniform?

Proud first grader!

Don't you love that pose?  That is TinyDancer's new "go to" pose.  Lately the only photos that I have of her include that pose.  And don't you LOVE those knee socks??  She is very proud of them!

The kids have been excited to see summer come to a close and get back into the groove of school.  EasternStar doesn't start for a few more weeks (which she is very put out about...) and TinyDancer has been counting down the days.

Here are some more pics of the morning -  

French braid for her hair.

Only RainbowBaby was up early enough to say good-bye.  EasternStar woke up and immediately asked for TinyDancer.  She was not happy that TinyDancer got to go to school while she had to stay home.  8 )

Right before the scramble to leave for school / work.

We brought her teacher this cute plant -



TinyDancer had a great first day and was full of excitement when she came home.  We're looking forward to a great school year!
