First day!

Today marks the first day of school. Ava’s starting fourth grade, and Olivia first. My mom was here this morning to enjoy the blueberry pancakes, photos and general chaos.

Ava didn’t stay by our side long at school—she immediately reconnected with her girlfriends.

Here she is with her teacher and two of her very best friends. I questioned the seating arrangements, but Mom pointed out they’d likely be fixed in short order this morning.

Olivia felt a bit more trepidation than Ava. She wore the quartz necklace she gave me for Mother’s Day to calm her, and Sleeping Bunny was tucked into her backpack. She’s nervous about her teacher, and she doesn’t have many friends in her class (yet…).

I trust she’ll do just fine.

    I was glad to hear the positive comments about the first day of school from both of the girls this afternoon. It’s been fun spending the past few days with all of you!

  4. Thanks for sharing, Rebecca. With lots of photos, I feel like I was there!
