First day of school 2011-2012

Happy first day of school everyone!

As a child, I loved the first day of school. I remember picking out my first day outfit and sorting through my school supplies...I know, I know, I am still the same nerd I always was. Anyways, Avery didn't really get the whole back to school hoop-la, probably since she went to the same school this summer while I was in summer school, but she was excited to get new teachers and new gear! And this year, she has to wear a uniform, and is in the same class as Jackson, yay!

She looks so grown up in her uniform. The only breakdown she had was when I actually pulled out the uniform that morning. She did not want to wear it at all, but insisted she wear some of the new clothes she got in San Marcos. Oh dear, I can only imagine what she will be like as a teenager! Once she saw the other kids in her class were wearing the same thing, she seemed fine with it.

Yesterday was also her first day of dance class. She was so excited, especially when she found out Riley, our friends little girl, who also goes to her school, was in her class. It is a ballet, tap, and jazz class that will meet once a week throughout the school year.

And since I have been off on a break this week from school, I searched on youtube yesterday cute ways to do little girls hair. I always fix Avery's hair the same way, so I was looking for something a little different. Here is what I came up with, didn't it turn out pretty cute???

Hope all of the kiddos and teachers had a great first start to a new school year!


  1. Her hair is so cute!! Poor Ella will never get such a cool 'do, I am hopeless.

  2. You are not! I probably need to watch some videos on how to do my own hair, instead of just Avery, hehe.
