I am the mama of a 1st grader

>> Friday, June 10, 2011

180 days went very quickly. It just seems like yesterday that Piper first started kindergarten and now I have a rising 1st grader. Wow. Piper has grown so much over the course of the past year. She writes stories, reads books, and has sleepovers. The school had a little graduation and the kids all performed.

Afterwards I got a mama to take a quick shot of the girls and I.

Then we got Piper's summer homework. Did I just say that? Why yes I did :) We got 2 math workbooks and 6 (WHAT???) reading workbooks. At least when she is "so bored" I will have something on hand to pull out. Lucky her :)

Finally I took an obligatory 1st day of school picture and decided to do a last day shot as well. For giggles I put her in the same dress. Gone is my baby and in her place a beautiful growing girl. Excuse me while I dry my eyes, again.

Cute performance by the class! The difference from day 1 to the last is amazing to see how she has grown :-)

I love the side by side shots. Look how much she grew in one year? That always amazes me.

look at her growth. I love the idea of a last day of school picture in the same outfit. I just might steal that. :) your Piper is darling.

Wow! The shorter hair really makes her look older! Sniff. It's sad, but exciting at the same time, to watch them grow up!

Holy cow, what a remarkable change since the year's beginning. She's equally adorable in both though. :)

I love the performance!

PS. I was over by Beaufort somewhere on that beach shot. Where is the shark tooth beach? So cool!
