A Fresh Start

Her backpack is stuffed with brand new supplies.
 
Her lunch is packed with kisses,
 
encouragement,
 
and a sparkling black raspberry surprise.
 
The important keepsake pictures were snapped.
 
 
 
 
And of course her nails were done!
(Jamberry nails from Victoria)
 
She has been gone an hour and Bo keeps asking
"When is Annie coming home?"
 
It's boy time.
Which I love.
 
Now I just want to get out my love note journals
and write Annie a letter in hers.
Not to hard to figure out which one is hers :)
She will get it when she graduates.
 
I still need to find the perfect verse
to cover her school year in prayer and blessings.
 
And right before we go pick her up,
we will fill the house with the
smell of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies.
My big sis Kate has taught that this is a must!
 
Happy Third Grade Baby!
Let your confidence & sweetness shine!

Love, Love, Love all your sweet little things you do for her first day. The note on the napkin, the card. I agree the chocolate chips are a must! You ROCK! Have a great day Annie!

Love,

I love that you leave her little notes on her lunch napkin! My mom did that for me, and I miss it. And the journal that she gets when she graduates is such a sweet idea. Congrats to Annie for reaching 3rd grade (with her usual grin)!
