Elizabeth and the First Day of School

I can hardly believe that Elizabeth is in kindergarten! Where have these last 5 years gone? You know when you are young, the grownups always tell you that time really flies....well they are right. It just seems like yesterday that she was born. Before I know it Ben and Cooper will be going off to school too! So I intend to enjoy these days as much as I can.

So on the first day of school, I was unable to make it to Laura's to be there when she got home, but I met them for ice cream and a few back to school treats. Here is our big Kindergarten girl with her treats.
Everyone needs some princess school supplies.
And a book to store all of those kindergarten memories.
And her favorite, another Ramona book. She has been enjoying the stories.
She is now into her second week of school, and things are going well. I can't wait to go to her school and check it out. Grandparents' breakfast is coming soon!

How darling she is!
The first day of School. Wow. I can vaguely remember my girls' first days, too.
I wanted to thank you for the sweet comments you wrote on my post about Letting Go.
You're right. It isn't easy--but the rewards are great! You are a testimony to that I see your blessings all over your blog ;)
And they are priceless!
Hugs and blessings to you as you make your home!
P.S. I think your girls are lovely! They look a lot alike and they look like you!
And I think I would like Auntie Laura around--she bakes pretty, yummy things!

I love this,and I think she is absolutely precious and pretty in her first day of kindergarten outfit! You are so right that time just flies. My own college girls were in her shoes just yesterday... or so it seems to me.

I pray that one day I'll be able to boast a banner like yours with both of my girls and their sweet families. You, Grandma, are a woman most blessed.

But I have a hunch that you knew that already, didn't you?

And btw: Give her high fives from another big old Ramona fan!
