My baby's first day at school

Bethany has been counting down the sleeps and this morning came running out exclaiming "It's a school day!"

Mim made her this smock and matching library bag (the smock has the pretty floral material on the back) so Bethany is bound to be the envy of all her classmates.

Bethany is sitting at a table with Hannah, her friend from church and daycare and three other little girls. There are only six girls in the class.

There were no tears, from Bethany or from us. She is so very excited and ready in every way so we are excited for her.

The only time I thought about getting sentimental was when I opened the card from her teacher. Isn't this a lovely thing to do?

We'll go and pick her up soon. I wonder if she can read yet? She was certainly hoping to learn that skill today.......


  1. I'm so proud of my little grown up niece!

    Well done Amy, you have three lovely kids!

  2. How excitement! Charlotte is very excited about her first day tomorrow. Bethany looks so grown up in her Uniform!

    I think I'm going to be a mess tomorrow - my baby girl AND the pregnancy hormones aren't a great combo. If the teacher gives us a card like that, I'll be ablsolutely blubbering.

  3. It's hard to believe Bethany has started school! She looks very smart in her dress and pig-tails. What a lovely idea from Lee-Ann. I'm sorry i wasn't there....I was there for Jossie and Toby!

  4. Aww she looks so sweet in her school uniform! And what a lovely teacher too! :D

  5. She's so beautiful. I like the sound of that teacher too (I'm assuming the card contained chocolate).

  6. Well, tears in MY eyes - I can't believe she looks so grown up. And happy too, isn't it lovely that school is a positive thing!

  7. Well I got tears in my eyes!
