You're a second grader now. You said to me this morning, "I'm a little excited, a little nervous, a little calm and a little happy. And I have the butterflies in my stomach."
You're so grown up now. It seems only yesterday you were heading off to the first day of preschool, with your little ponytails and your first backpack:
Today you were chatting away about seeing your friends, about finally being the second grader on the bus:
Of course, your little brother was hovering all around you, looking up to you. Someday, Finn:
Thankfully, there was an inch worm to distract him after you left, because he misses you when you're at school:
And, of course, we posed for our "First Day of School" picture, like we do every year:
I know the first day of anything brings butterflies of excitement and nerves, and you're so brave. You have many amazing adventures ahead of you this year. I'm so proud of you.
Happy first day of school, my big second grader. We love you!
