This year she's in fourth grade.
Holy moly. That's all I can say.
For the first day she chose to wear this cute striped dress that her dad's girlfriend picked out for her. I suggested the leggings and an undershirt (the dress is sleeveless) since I know she's going to do flips on the bars at recess.
Getting on the bus is always fun. She has so many friends now but it's crazy to see how much taller she is than most of them. This year ought to be interesting. She's got a couple friends in her class including one boy from church that she seems to have a serious crush on. She will neither confirm nor deny the accusation, which in essence is a confirmation.
Real life is back, full force.
