First Day of School

My baby girl is officially a Junior in High School today. Wow... doesn't seem possible to be honest. But it's true!

It really seems like just yesterday we were celebrating her 1st Birthday.

But really, it was just last week that we celebrated her 16th Birthday!

This morning, I made a point to take her picture for the first day of school. I know I've taken pictures in the past, but I haven't been consistent and I couldn't tell you where in the world those pictures are now!!

Here, she is having an intense conversation w/ Beckham while she's getting her shoes on this morning. I think she was comforting him, letting him know it was just like any other day, she would still be home in the afternoon! He was quite pitiful, as you can see below:

Brandi, on the other hand, is pretty used to the first day of school, so she knows there's nothing to worry about.

Below is the classic "first day of school" pose, minus the bookbag. I didn't make her put her bookbag over her shoulder. I didn't feel like pushing my luck. She agreed to let me take her picture, so that was good enough for me!

And her favorite part of her outfit??? Her shoes of course!!

Now I'm ready for the post first day of school update! Unfortunately, I won't get to talk to her until 5pm since she has softball practice this afternoon.

I am praying that her first day goes great and I'm also keeping all our teachers and all our students in my prayers today. They will need all the prayers they can get!! And also, those parents who are sending their children to school for the first time, I know they need prayers today too.

Wow! When does school get out for the summer for you???
My kids don't go back to school until Sept. 7.
And my baby girl is going to be a freshman in high school. *sniff*
