the first day, a recap

Tuesday marked the first day back to school for BK, she’s moved up to the three-year-old class, and things look a little different this year. We learned at Open House that it would be a little more likeΒ school, learning letters and having calendar time, and even bringing home a behavior chart in her daily folder.

When I uploaded these pictures to the computer, I couldn’t believe how much she has grown over the summer. I feel like she must be a foot taller!


Last night we worked on this fun little project. Each of her classmates did one too, and they’ll get to share them at school. She picked out the flower stickers and markers at Wal-Mart, but when it really came down to it, Allen and I were the ones finishing this project.


My hope for this year is that she continues to be the social butterfly we know and love. That she makes new friends, and keeps old friends. That her heart is kind and understanding. That she shares and loves like we know she can. But, most importantly that learning remains fun for her, that her love for school and her excitement each morning never waver.


And because you know I’m a fan of adorable toddler lunches, here’s look at what she took for the first day. That pencil is just a FlatOut foldover cut into the shape of a pencil, with cheddar and provolone melted on top (so that it would stay put), and pink marshmallows as the eraser. You can follow me on Instagram (@jenniferggreen) and check the hashtag #bkslunch to peek inside her lunch box.


And the obligatory comparison picture, I can hardly believe how much she has grown in this short year.
