First Day of 2nd Grade & Curling with a Staight Iron...Day 227

Today was a Big day at our house...Sunshine's first day of second grade!!! The big news is we made it...haha...if you have been following our blog for anytime, you probably remember that we missed the first day of kindergarten (we were at the beach)...and first grade (stated year doing home school)...so today was a pretty big day...ha!

Sunshine came down to breakfast to find that the "Back to School" fairy had been to visit!
2's everywhere!
My girl LOVES stuff like this...I hope second grade doesn't change that!
I heart you, Sunshine!

Big girl ready for school!!
I {heart} her new shoes!

Daddy was so sweet to meet us at the school and wait in the car with the littles while I walked in my big girl! High School kids lined both sides of the sidewalk and offered the "little kids" granola bars and wished them a great first day of school. Of course, Sunshine LOVED this "mini pep rally!" Haha! The walkway was lined with banners boasting this year's key verse...
Excited to be at school!
Could she be any sweeter?
Reconnecting with old friends...
She LOVES her new teacher! Yay!

And then there were just the babies...

After school (today was early dismissal at 11:45), we had lunch at Chick-Fil-A with Ganny and Papa Texarkana (who were in town for another doctor's appointment). Sunshine celebrated the first day of school with a yummy chocolate milkshake...yum!!

This afternoon, I watched a video on YouTube about curling your hair with a straight iron...I guess it works :o)
The big girls LOVE getting their hair curled like Sweet Pea's :o)

They both look so grown up! I love the verse Phil. 4:13 it happened to be my best friend's favorite as she battled cancer!

Hi, I'm not sure how I stumbled across your blog (and I don't think I have ever commented-oops!). But you are so creative and I love the how you create special memories with your children. I love the idea for the first day of school. Thanks for sharing!
