oh, it was lovely. she looked so cute and of course, her style was all her own. i thought i would get emotional seeing her sit at her table in her new classroom, but i was too stressed out to get emotional. it was hard juggling her school supplies, holding little c., and sweet m. wanting to hold my hand! but it was great. we started a new journey today, and it's going to be great.
i helped sweet m. sharpen her pencils, and i thought the shavings were very beautiful.
some sharpened by her, some by me.
new and shiny backpack, pandapple, hanging out with maddie the matryoshka.
brand new school shoes. oh, i love these shoes. wish they made them in my size!
i had her stand by the door and pretend she was leaving. *sighs.
she got bored of waiting around and kept asking, "can we go to my school now?"
to deal with the boredom, she started playing around with my glasses.
the full outfit: i suggested the top (it's new) and cut her jeans into jean shorts for her. she insisted on socks pulled up, and her new ladybug shoes.
outside the brand new school. they just finished building it.
i was so glad she got to sit at the red table, red being her favorite color. i took this picture, then i picked up little c. and left her all on her own. she had a brilliant day.
