My First Grader!

First Grade...here she comes!!!
Backpack loaded with new school supplies.
Matching lunch box is a must :)
New shoes...trying desperately to add a little style to her uniform!
First Grade means ALL DAY!!!

I think trying to pose with 2 little brothers
will be the hardest thing she will have to do all day.
Hopefully, because that was tough with no luck!

I always love to get a car pic to really date the pictures.


I will admit...I did get tears in my eyes when her teacher prayed with her before she entered the classroom.


Annie is just happy to get to spend
all day with her BFF (another Annie).

Yep...even if I am not ready...she is.

Have a great first day Babygirl!!!

Jessica...did I win? 
We had a little race to post the
First Day of School pics :)

Awwwww, our little girl is growing up! :-)

Victoria said...

:) I remember those days! She looks so sweet! I'm so glad she's got a teacher who cares enough to pray with the kids as they come in.

Dang it! YOU DID WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was just checking to see of you beat me and I am cracking up but I won't tell you why until you see MY First Day of School Post. And I just got all choked up at the part about her teacher praying with her...I have been crying on and off all day. Off to post so I can humbly accept second place. Man, I was even giving you the grace of different time zones...and waited until after noon. You are good girl! Oh, and that last pic...too cute for words. That's a keeper!

Just adorable and looks like she is all ready for first grade. That was great that her teacher prayed with her before she went in. I loved this post. Hugs

Karen said...

Libbie, oh I remember the first day, too. How cute she looks in those FINE boots! Say, is it chilly there already? Your kids in jackets? It's 90 here today... Great idea about the picture with your car. I'm gonna remember that!

She looks adorable and love the boots. Her backpack & lunch bag are so darn cute. Hope she has a great school year.

But why are the pics so blurry, ah, maybe it's just those tears in my eyes. All day! I know she's so ready, especially since she can now even tie her shoes, but......................
How special to have her teacher praying with her as she enters the school, I pray for them both. There's so much to learn in first grade; fractions, telling time, getting serious about reading, I know our girl ready and will love it. Hugs, Annie, love ya MORE!

koralee said...

Oh my goodness...what a milestone!!! She is adorable and looks ready for grade one.

I wish she was one of my students..what fun we would have. xoxoxo

They call me "Deb" said...

Well if the word adorable had it's photo taken it would definitely look like Miss Annie!!!
May God bless and protect and nurture and guide Annie and all little scholars as their minds are molded and fashioned in school. May God draw the hearts of every teacher to Him and to love and protect and train each and every student. May Annie begin a time of wonderful memories and great friendships and a lifetime of loving to learn.
And may God comfort the heart of Mom as I know she misses her baby-girl already.
Hugs and prayers,
Deb

So the big question for You Libby is, How Did You Do with Your Little Girl gone all day in 1st Grade????? How did the Boys Do? Annie Looks Adorable! nice that they have Uniforms, at least it should make it Easier when You Don't have to worry about What their Wearing..... Love the Boots, the perfect touch to the Uniform ~ Fits Annies Personality! I went yesterday in the afternoon to see My Gran Daughter Memphys get off the bus, she is in 2nd grade this year, How Quick They Grow ~ I Miss You & Kate, Where in the heck has Kate Been????? Does she have a Computer to get Email???? I just have to sit down & write her ~ Take Care Sweet Lady , Talk again soon

Oh my goodness! I just stumbled into your blog for the first time....honestly, I had to slap my hand over my mouth looking at these wonderful images of your beautiful children. Those smiles...those curls...THOSE BOOTS!

And that photo with your daughter holding the "1"....is a great idea. If I ever have a family, I am totally using that idea on my kids :)
