1st day of 1st grade

Today was Anne's first day back to school - 1st grade, can you believe it? We were so excited to find that school here doesn't start until 9am instead of the 7:45am back in Hawaii. I awoke earlier then my usual summer time hour to find that Anne was already up, bed made and getting dressed for school. I could tell she was very excited. She was also happy to see that it was a rainy cold day - she really wanted to wear a jacket to hang in her locker...


We parked about a block away from the school - because Anne wanted to "walk" to school. After I picked her up today she told me to park farther away from the school to we could walk farther...just wait until it is cold she will want be as close as I can get.

Here is Anne's school, Linden Elementary School. Isn't it cool? We have been having some cooler weather here the last few weeks and I think all the trees in the area are a bit confused. Can you believe the leaves are already turning and falling? Perfect for the first day back to school though.

Anne was so thrilled to find that she had her own locker. The first time we visited the school back in June to sign her up she exclaimed, "Mom they have closets just like on High School Musical!"

How exciting Anne! Such a big girl, I can't believe it. She will do great!
The evenings and mornings have been quite chilly here as well and some of the leaves are changing, I just don't think I'm ready for winter but it's sure to be soon!!!

That is an awesome school! My kids would go goo-gah over having their own lockers, too (and bright red to boot!) I bet Anne will have a great year!
