First Day

Today was Brooklyn's first day of school. I don't know how putting on the uniform instantly made her older and more mature but somehow it did. She looked adorable. We bought the uniforms earlier this summer, and she was so proud, she asked to wear it out of the store. She couldn't resist trying them on multiple times throughout the summer (and neither could little sister Ellie). I wonder how long it will take before she is complaining about having to wear them every day. I love the idea of no battles in the morning about what to wear (which we have been having for at least 3 years now).

Unfortunately this will be the only day she gets to use the adorable owl backpack since the enormous-1/2 the size of a kindergartner-binder they require her to carry doesn't fit in it. We had to make a pit stop on the way home at Target to buy a newer, bigger, and slightly less cute Paul Frank one.

I was really curious as to what info we would get out of her when she came home from school.
  • She has already decided who her first best friend and second best friend are.
  • Ariel got a blue card.
  • She learned about the number 1 and the letter I.
  • She ate all her cookies but only 1/2 her sandwich.
  • She played on the big playground with Cielo and Cara.


  1. did you cry at all? Its such a big day. I love her headband. Did you make that? She looks so grown up and ready for this new phase.
    made the same mistake about backpack size. And... sandwhich will never be eaten all the way.
    Wish I was there with you girls.

  2. Oh my goodness. Time is flying! I love the uniform and cute shoes. mh
