First Grade!

At 4:00AM Ivy was trying to get us up so she could go to school.

At 4:05AM John was trying to get her to go back to sleep in her own bed.

At 4:10AM he had given up and gone back to bed himself.

At 6:30AM she was back – “I’m all ready, all I need is my shoes and breakfast.”

At 6:35AM John was begging her to go back to bed for a little big longer.

At 6:40AM he gave up and got up to have breakfast with Ivy.

At 7:15AM she came back to get me up so I could take her picture.

At 7:30AM I dragged myself outside and took some pictures of her.Ivy First Grade

    Oh my that is way too early! I am glad the first day was great and bedtime was easy! I put two tired boys on the bus this morning.

  2. Helen says:

    I love the photo of Ivy running to meet Jane! Hope the whole school year goes well for you all.

      Thanks Helen. I will say that my picture taking skills before I’m all the way awake are fairly terrible. Crooked, blue, fuzzy… but I also love the one of her running off the bus – Apparently I’m an afternoon photographer. 🙂

  3. Corky says:

    Yes! By the look on her face running to meet Jane, she did indeed have a great first day of school! Whew!

  4. Imelda says:

    All that excitement! I hope she remains upbeat about school always.

    • Jessie says:

      I hope so too. I also hope that as the year goes on she can keep that sunny attitude in the picture for more than the trip down the driveway. She’s a very tired, very cranky girl this week!

    Oh Jessie, I just love this! Your little girls are so full of life, and I love the way you describe their events in life! I really hope that Ivy continues to be so excited about school…and I LOVE the picture of her little sister waiting for her to get off the bus. Simply the best 🙂
