First Grade!

"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on."
-Havelock Ellis

We survived the first day! Well . . . what I really mean is I did . . . She was as happy as could be with her new dinosaur backpack (that's practically as tall as she is) and "big-kid" school to look forward to . . . 


"How'd you like your first day of First Grade?" "Good!" She announced. "There's a lotsa kids there and my teacher is really funny. I think she's playful. . . Plus, now I'm one year closer to becoming a Paleontologist!" (Oh, how I love that kid!) "That's right Baby Girl, you sure are . . ."
