Lucy at her meet and greet the day before school starts
Lucy is in second grade now! She is in Mrs. Davison's class with her good friend Lauren...finally! Lauren and Lucy have been friends for ages, but never had a class together until now. Lucy is so proud of herself for the amazing things she can do now that she's a second grader: she wakes up to her own alarm clock, gets herself showered and dressed, reads 30 minutes in the morning, reads to Elliott, and helps do her own hair...her specialty is her side ponytail. She was also very eager to help Elliott get ready for going to kindergarten. We went for a run to Discovery Elementary the other day, and she showed him the playground, the third grade playground, and the bathrooms. She has told him the playground rules, and the hallway rules. She sits by him on the bus, and gives him, and I'm quoting Elliott, "a big hug, a big kiss, and picks me up" when she sees him on the playground. It must help him so much to know he has her to help and look out for him there. She is amazing...have I said that before?
When I got ready to photograph Lucy's first day of school, I didn't have to give her any direction, she just went for it! I love to see the progression of her poses:
gets a little silly, cracks herself up
and ends strong. Love her.
The bus stop. They made it to the front of the line, and Elliott couldn't be more excited.

Proud Mamma and her little students!
Here are some bus adventures...
Elliott's grin is so genuine here.
What a good sister she even lets her brother sit by the window
Off the bus and onto the campus
Outside her classroom
Showing her brother the ropes
The day is over, she is officially a second grader!! She is ready to go and learn as much as she can!
I think these are fun books, and we have all 200 of them, so we are set for the next several years of book gifts!
