1st Day of 1st Grade!



Today was KJ's first day of school! She was very excited, but also nervous. Last year she just thrived at school, absolutely loved it. So, I was surprised to hear that she was nervous. So, I asked her was she was so nervous about, and she said she is scared about eating school lunch, and science. I don't know where the science idea came from, but I understand the school lunch thing.

First of all, it's nast. But besides that, KJ is the pickiest eater on the face of the planet. She is strictly vegan. But, not on principle. It's just because she simply doesn't like stuff....you know, like bread, meat, cheese, basically all foods, except fruit and vegetables....and chocolate milk.

So, today, I packed her a nice lunch sack full of rabbit food and sent her on her way.
We were running ahead of schedule, had plenty of time to kill, so I took her out on the porch for the annual 1st day of school photo op.




We were just getting ready to head out the door, when KJ comes running up to show me that her very, very loose haggle tooth...

...had finally fallen out! Right before we left.

So she had to run for the bus, but she made it and had a great day.

She didn't have much to say about it except that she listed the names of all her friends in her class, and was soooo excited that she gets THREE recesses!

She's come a long way in the last year.
Here she is on the first day of Kindergarten, one year ago.


Good Job KJ!
We're proud of you! You'll do great in First Grade!

How fun! Gotta love those first day pics. So funny...my friends 2nd grader lost his tooth at his first day of school also! It must be a 'growing up' thing.
