She couldn't even walk on her own a year ago! A lot has changed in a year, but some things stay the same too. She is actually wearing the same bow. That wasn't intentional and I just noticed it.
I got her back pack from my friend, Kari. She owns The Embroidery Boutique.
Kari can do just about any design.
Katie loves puppies, so this fits her perfectly.
Last year we had the great back pack scandal of 2011! There were 6 girls in Katie's class and 3 of them had the same back pack! I don't want to be dramatic, but it was a tragedy!
And this is her matching lunch box.
I packed several things in there today, but she just ate a few pretzels and that's it! I think there was too much excitement!
And her nap mat:
This year they all nap on the floor. They said all but 2 kids napped today, guess who was one of the two?! I have washed this nap mat twice already and it still looks great. And it has the pillow and blanket attached, so it's convenient.
Mainly I just care that it's cute. I am a form over function kind of girl.
This was my baby at drop off:
Just like last year:
It's enough to make me want fall to the floor sobbing. But I didn't!
And she had a GREAT day. The tears were just at the beginning!
I know she loves it and she gets to do so many fun things there!
I will end with a happy picture.
I have a to do list a mile long that has been waiting until school starts. But today I was a little paralyzed with all that had to be done. I did clean a little bit, but probably didn't use my time very wisely. It was also nice just to be by myself for a little bit and have some alone time!
I might think about being productive on Thursday, or maybe next Tuesday...
