She was a completely different child the next morning. There was no fear, only excitement!!
All smiles and ready for 1st grade
Do you notice something missing from that beautiful smile?
Two days before school started Isabel finally lost her top front tooth while eating pizza!
Because Will was feeling left out and wanted a picture with "sissy"
Luckily Isabel's excitement continued as we got to the school. My friend and I planned to meet so our girls could walk in together. I was still nervous that Isabel would suddenly break into tears when I had to leave her but she did great. (I think I was still having fashbacks from the trauma of leaving her crying and scared last year in kindergarten). She walked into her classroom with her friends with a huge smile on her face. She just waved goodbye and we stayed long enough to watch them find their desks and get settled.
Four days later she is still loving 1st grade and I'm so so thankful! Our only issue has been getting her out of bed some mornings so we are working on an earlier bedtime. It is hard to get away from that summer schedule!
