First Grade

 Ella started 1st grade today!
 To be honest, I was a little nervous for Ella.  She started a new school this year and almost 
everyday of kindergarten she told me she just wanted to stay home with me.
 Any worries I had were completely unnecessary.
Ella loved 1st grade and cannot wait to go back!
 Today was a big day for Murray as well.
Today was Murray's first day of morning carpool duties for the next 14 or so years.
We celebrated Ella's Big Day last night by eating Ella's choice of chicken tacos.
 Then we celebrated this afternoon 
 with chocolate covered
What a day!

I cannot believe that this day has finally come and gone.
We are definitely entering a new phase in life, but it seems right!
I know everyday is not going to be a chocolate covered donut day, 
but we are excited for all that comes with being a big First Grader!


  1. So sweet and dear! Where is she is school? I was able to be with Daveney in Memphis for her first day of school while I was there taking care of Beth and Anne Harris....what a special time! Let's hear it for those Dads that run that morning carpool duty....YEAH!

  2. Yay for Dads and carpool duty!! I'm thankful for that, too! Look at that blondie you have!! Looks like she's getting highlights!:)
