So, I hate to watermark my personal images, but I feel for my own best interest, I will have to.
On Monday, the 27th, MiMi started 2nd grade. I'm sure she was equally relieved to escape her clingy little brother and venture into new, yet familiar territory. Of course, I had to walk her to school (her classroom, let's not leave off how clingy I am as well hehe) - and take photos. Just a few though.
It's always hard for me each year to remember, that just yesterday - though it was 3 years ago, I was walking her to pre k for the first time. My shy little 4 year old, in her cute little school uniform, while I hoisted a chubby baby boy on my hip.
Then came kindergarten, Ethan was in a stroller, and I would walk her to class for only a week, before the teacher encouraged independence and had me break free to let her grow.
First grade, was a little different, I was baby sitting my sister's best friends little girl and I loaded my little car with two toddlers and MiMi and walked her to class just twice.
After that she explained very matter of fact, that she could walk herself.
No problem, I thought, I have my first day pictures, I'll just creep in on the major school events and leave it at that.
I really must say though, once your children hit pre k, the years just fly..they fly so far away and you are trying to do a mixture of balancing time and enjoying each moment.
Some are successful, some not so much. :)) I hope my baby has a great year in school, and I hope she will always apply herself and enjoy her education.
