My daughter is having her first school pictures today.
Wow. That is a scary thought.
But ever the prepared mom (ha!), I packed an extra shirt and a hairbrush in her backpack this morning in case she gets a bit of food on her at lunch. :-)
I can't wait to see them.
She also drew a picture for her teacher last night - in fact, she drew the entire kindergarten classroom. It was so adorable. I should have scanned it into my computer before she took it to school today.

I still tear up whenever I see her carrying her backpack. She just looks so darn little to be going to school! Where did the time go?
I filled out her first Scholastic Book Order last night. Do you remember those? I used to love bringing them home and scanning the pages, then begging mom to let me get "just one!" book. And the day they arrived at school, it felt like Christmas.
