So, today, we celebrated a “first” in our house. It’s a first that comes around once a year…or twice, if you consider the fact that my daughter doesn’t attend school in the district where I teach. Yep, you guessed it. Today was my oldest daughter’s first day of school.
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably already seen our newly minted second grader with her “back to school” sign and toothless grin.
Most of us already take a “first day” photo of our kids, and some of us even create a sign or use a prop…
…and some of us even take a picture at the school, or in front of the school sign.
But what do you do when your school child’s almost three year old little sibling feels left out? Make them a sign, too, of course!
Little Miss was tickled pink to be a part of the photo-festivities…and we got some super cute shots to use in her yearbook someday. Her sign reads, “I’ll be here in three years!” Due to her late fall birthday, she’ll start school the fall AFTER she turns five, meaning she’ll turn six during her kindergarten year.
We even sneaked back over to the school once the traffic died down a bit to take these cute pics in front of the school buses.
It’s rare that I get a photo of the two of them where Aubrey is cooperating. Even though these two engage in a whole lot of sisterly spats, it’s clear from these pics that they really do love one another.
And that makes my heart smile.
I hope you all have a wonderful school year, even those of you who (like me) haven’t started back to school yet.
Have a wonderful week, and join us tomorrow for some more “back to school” goodness.
