First day of 1st grade!

The first day of first grade finally arrived!!!  Makenna's teacher is Mrs. Gott and she is FANTASTIC! We got to go in the day before school started to meet her and realized she lived in our neighborhood.  We have half of the neighbor kids in her class too, but we love it.  

Anyway! Kenna woke up all ready to go.  I let her pick out everything (including her hairstyle). The outfit she picked out she called her "Land of Poo" outfit from the movie, Nanny McPhee Returns.  Its a pretty funny joke if you have seen the movie.  If not, oh well!   

We got Kenna all ready, fed, and dropped her off.  She walked right in to her desk, and that was it!  I'm glad she was so confident to go in and didn't look back.  It was a L.O.N.G. day back at the homestead.  Gavin and I had to try and think of things to do, since we didn't have Makenna bossing us around and inventing new games!  We survived, and it has since gotten easier to keep Gavin entertained (ie. Phineas and Ferb).  Gavin starts preschool on Sept. 6 thankfully!  

Makenna came home and talked the rest of the day how much she loved school, how funny her teacher was and how fun it was to eat at school. Here is to a year of her still loving it!
