TOMORROW Ponsi begins her school adventure (we just had orientation this morning) but TODAY was Victoria's Day. She didn't seem to be over excited for school this year, mainly because her BFF Abegail was not in her class. But last night as we were getting clothes ready and making sure we had all our supplies, her eyes started to dance (that is what Jamie said of her the night before kindergarten and it still holds true). Tori loves school and each time the whole family takes that first walk of the year down to the bus, she seems to get a little older. This year she asked me if EVERYONE was coming down to the bus stop and she told me people were going to think she was a kindergartner or something if we all came. I told her they would think she was so lucky to have a family that loved her so much. She smiled and I know she wouldn't want it any other way. She had a really good first day and is excited about being in Mrs. Jocketty's class and about what this year will bring. I just think second grade is so old...;(

This morning on MY way to school I saw all these little kids at the bus stops with their moms and dads taking pictures of them, it was precious. Of course I thought of the Miller girls! I hope Isabelles first day of school is wonderful.

Will you and Jamie and the girls walk me to school on my first day of "class" on Sept. 15th?! It'd be a long walk to downtown Minneapolis, but I think the Guidance Counselors would find it cool!

Mrs. Jockerty : ) What a great name! 2nd grade IS old : ). She looks adorable. I love that she was worried that people would think she was a kindergartner. I also love her dancing eyes! I hope they both had a great first week of school.
