abby's first day of 1st grade

today abby started her first day in first grade. she was so excited and woke up early, eager to begin a new school year with a new teacher in a new classroom with her new book bag and matching lunchbox. as a parent, i love knowing how much she loves school and i hope it continues throughout high school, college, and graduate school. hehe. we took her picture in our driveway, in front of her classroom's door, and in jay's car's rear view mirror...just as we did the year before. these are our traditional pics and i can't wait to compare them in a book side-by-side one day. here are some pics...
after picking up abby from an early dismissal that day and being reunited with the carpool line, she quickly jumped in and told me about all the fun she had that day. she said she turned in her book report from her summer reading, got to play with some old and new friends at recess, ate all of her snack, and couldn't wait to go back again the next day. hooray for the first day down in the books!
lastly, here is a quick comparative picture of abby in jay's rear view mirror as he drove her to school that morning. the top one was of her last year as she was entering her first day in kindergarten and the bottom one is of her first day in the first grade. i think it'll be so bittersweet to see what her progression looks like as she enters 8th grade one day. it's amazing what one year makes...
