New Kids on the Block

Well as much as I was soooo desperate for the school year to begin there was a little excitement and much trepidation about going back to school this year - because it is a new school for my little Grade 1 girl.

Much bigger than the last.
Much more overwhelming when you've just figured out the dynamics of school friends and realise you have to start again. But after some tears at the start and a few whimpers of " Will I have any friends?" ( me then stopping to put my heart back in ) off she went holding hands with her new teacher.

I was so excited to do the first school pick up for 2008 - although it was the first day for me too remember - I didn't know a soul either - but when I finally saw her walking out, arms linked with two other girls and not even a hello to me but " Ella wants me to play at her house tonight so can I go?" I figured everything would be alright.

And she does have the coolest library bag in the class - well me and my Janome think so anyway!!!!

It is a lovely library bag.

And I love the idea of stopping to put your heart back in -

Oh, motherhood. The one thing I'm annoyed about is that no one told me how many times my heart will be in and out. Sheesh.

The library bag is gorgeous. And didn't your little one do well at school to make friends so quickly!

I hope she has a librarian who appreciates that gorgeous bag - if not send her to my school and I'll organise a bag parade!
Look after your heart my dear!

That bag is so gorgeous !

I hope this baby is a boy, because otherwise it is doomed to have the kind of mother I had - the non-sewing, non-baking, non hair-braiding kind.

I hate that kind of mama ;)

Cute bag!
The whole school / kids thing can be so heart wrenching. Its funny how as a kid you just don't realise what childhood puts parents through.
Glad your girl enjoyed her first day.

That is a great bag. Well done to you and your Janome.

I had one of those days two years ago when my oldest daughter started at a new school, in a new state...and exactly the same, she walked out at pick-up time with a new friend asking if she could go play at her house.

Kids are so adaptable.

How could she not have friends, they all probably thought she was so cool! Especially when they saw her library bag.
