Sydney's First Day of 1st Grade

Aw me, my Sydney is an amazing little girl!

She is stylish...


I took her to the store & told her she could be in charge of picking out her own back-to-school outfit. And as you can see, this girl is WAY more stylish than me.

She is independent...

She popped straight into class, no fanfair, no concerns, & happy as can be.

She is confident...

On the way to school I said, "Sydney just remember you are so smart. You are going to do great." Her reply was, "I know, mom. I'm super smart". Man, I always want her to be that confident in herself.

She is kind...

While Syd was not in the least bit concerned about going to school she was SO concerned for Rob & I. What on earth would we do without her? She was very kind to Rob before she headed into class.

For the record, Lincoln, Rob, & I survived just fine running errands and generally getting ready for Rob to start school next week. I'm so in love with these cool kids of mine.


P.S. A couple other back to school days here & here.

What a big girl! She'll do so great, I'm so excited for her to learn a new language... so cool.

I'm glad to hear that you guys survived without her, although I'm sure it was rough.

She is not concerned about school because as she told me " everyone likes ME" She is so right...but growing too fast.
