Welcome to 2nd Grade!

September 10, 2015

Sophie started second grade this week and I’m a bit in shock that I have a such a “grown up” kid! She has a teacher who has high energy, which Sophie will respond well to. She’s known to expect a lot of the kids, which I appreciate. And the kids in the class are a great group. I think it’s going to be a great year for her!

She was beyond excited to go back to school. I think she had more energy and happiness after school on the first day than I saw all summer. I don’t have a lot of pleasant memories of my elementary school experience. So when Sophie started grade school, the one thing I wanted for her was to enjoy going to school. I’m so glad she does!

Something I realized after losing all my photos earlier this year is that I’m so thankful I’ve recorded these milestones on my blog. I am glad I took the time to “journal” all of Sophie’s first days of school and save photos here. I realize that not everyone cares when a blogger’s kid starts school. I know this post won’t “go viral” and I’m not expecting thousands of pageviews. And that’s perfectly fine with me. I never blogged for those reasons. I write here to share stories and moments that are precious to me. This is one of those moments.

And of course, a look back at previous first days of school. I love doing this each year. I use Picmonkey to create this if you want to make one for yourself.

      Thanks, Allison! I love making it each year and I’ve been known to do it for holidays too. I definitely think you should do it for Lulu!

    So big! I adore that you have pictures from every year. I wish I were that organized!
