The First Day of School-First Grade!

Hope had a great day today at school.  Although, I didn't make it to the end of the day without a phone call from her teacher.  I saw the number come up on my phone and new it was from her teacher.  You just never know what you are going to hear.  Luckily, it was typical Hope information.  :)

Her teacher called to let me know she had noticed that Hope had a hole in her pants and had suspected she had used her scissors to cut the hole.  I explained to her that it wasn't the first time this had happened and that maybe it would help if both of us reminded her that scissors were for cutting paper/crafts only and not on her clothes.  Good grief!

Other than that, her teacher said she had a GREAT day!  That is always good to hear.

So here are the pictures I took this morning...

She was very excited to see she had the same bus driver this year.  I was too.  He was really good last year and will keep her in line.  :)

She has already asked me if she can walk to the bus on her own tomorrow morning with the neighbor kids.  I will have to think about that one.  :)

When I picked her up at the after school program, we walked down to get a picture of her with her new locker.  As you can see she pretty much destroyed the pants... my plan is to cut them off and make them shorts.  We will get a little more use out of them.  

Well, I mentioned yesterday that I created a layout using the new Authentique Paper line, which you can find here.

This is a layout using a new family photo of my niece's family.  Aren't they a beautiful family!

Here are a few detail shots of the layout...

The yellow area is actually a pocket, which holds the baby announcement for Kenton.  I wasn't sure if I would do a separate layout, but wanted to have a special place for it with this layout.  So I strategically placed my adhesive to create a pocket just big enough for the annoucement.

Well, that is all for today.  Of to figure out what to cook my hungry first grader for supper!  Have a good one!

What a great page. Love the color combo and pretty embellishments. The heart looks great. I am all familiar with holes. My son is very rough on his pants. :o)
