4th Grade

Gah, it's here already.

Yesterday was the first day of school for LOML. 4th grade.

Yeah, I said it. 4th grade.

I'm still shaking my head in disbelief.

Here she is eating her breakfast at the kitchen table. Notice the sleepy eyes? Yeah, it's like 6:30 in the morning. I'm usually getting to work at this time and she's just getting ready for school.

I took yesterday off of work to see her off. I've done that every year (except kindergarten when we were evacuated due to Hurricane Katrina) and I wouldn't miss it for the world.

It was raining yesterday morning but cleared up just before she got on the bus. By the afternoon, it was gorgeous outside.

Here's Nikki saying good-bye. She was fascinated with being able to peek in the windows of the car.

Here she is. Off to her first day of 4th grade.

She's HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I soooooooooo wanted to run down the driveway and tackle her in a BIG HUG, but I refrained......barely.

If you click on the pic, you can see the HUGE smile on her face.

The first day of 4th grade went wonderfully. She loves her teacher, she gets to sit next to her friend and she already has homework!

Yeah, that was actually one of the highlights of the day. Already getting homework. It's actually not due until Monday but she couldn't wait to do some work.

Fingers crossed it stays this way FOREVER!

4th grade.....*shaking head*.....I can't believe it's here.

How's that LOML smile? Bug hugs to the big 4th grader.


I can't believe she is back to school and has homework already! Hope she has a great fourth grade year!

Captain Dumbass

Grade 4, wow. Connor's off to grade one, but not for another 4 weeks.


OK, some thing is WRONG with your child...homework?!? Excited about HOMEWORK?!? Unless it was coloring, I was nowhere to be found during homework time! YAY! Happy first day of 4th grade!!!


Awww...and she looks so grown up in the first photo! Enjoy - glad we don't start until the end of the month!


OH wow!! They grow so fast! So glad to hear she loves school. That is just amazing! Big hugs to the big fourth grader!!


awe... so precious!

Jaden Paige

Wow. Am I super sappy that I am getting a little tear thinking about my daughter being this old someday?!


I love your idea of sending her off like that. You are a super cool mom. :)


My baby starts 4th grade this year too. But my oldest is going to 7th....aacck!

Swirl Girl

glad it went well for her!

my baby starts Kindergarten in a few weeks. I don't know who it will be harder for!


Doesn't it seem like it goes faster and faster and faster...

She's so pretty, and I love the picture of her getting off the bus at the end of the day. Hang in there, Mom!

Glad she enjoyed her 1st day!!! Love the puppy kiss picture!


awesome! trinity is going in 4th grade this year too. i sure wish our school year would hurry up and get here!


4th grade was my hardest grade. I think my mom was about ready to sell me off to the highest bidder by the end of the year. Long division...*shudder*.

I know she will do better than I did.

Grade 4 (as we call it North of the Border) was the best year. It's all downhill from here.


My girls started school today. I would say it went quite well for both of them. Though Katie was indignant that I left her at home doing work while I went to a Back to School bash with a bunch of neighborhood moms. Complete with champagne :-)

I can't believe it's dark when your daughter gets on the bus!


Emily, I loved that pic! She's so cute. I can't believe Luke will be in 4th grade one day!!


My youngest goes into fifth next week. *shaking head*
