I'm a little late with this... like a week and some change late, but better late than never right??!! Here she is, my BIG first grader, Miss Bella! So far she's loving school. She has a great bunch of friends, and has handled the transition pretty well! (other than being very hungry & tired by the end of the day) As for me, maybe it's a good thing I've been so busy, because I haven't had time for it to soak in that she is now a big kid... I couldn't be prouder of her. She is smart, witty, funny, loving, sweet, sassy, and she tries with all of her might, and I appreciate that about her! It's pretty weird for her to be gone from us all day, but she's so happy, it's hard to not be happy for her!
