May it be remembered, that Olive's first day of first grade was the nastiest, rainiest morning we've had in Holland in quite a while. We had to be at the school at 7:35am on the first day, and between us still being groggy and the rain pouring down, and the sky still being really dark, and the first day jitters we were both feeling - we didn't get any fancy, "first day back" photos. We did however get a quick snap of Olive next to her VERY OWN, SHINY NEW LOCKER. She's so proud.
Olive's class is in a brand new building this year, so that added to the first-day-chaos. While the coming and going was a little crazy, her first day as a first grader couldn't have gone better. She was beaming when I picked her up, and had nothing but glowing reviews of her classmates and teacher. We're excited about this new school year!
