Ok, ok, I admit it. Today was not my kids first day of school. They went back last Tuesday, but the public schools in Michigan started today, so this post is somewhat legit.
Getting ready to leave…Alivia wouldn’t smile and Lainey had been crying because Alivia had socked her (or something):
Heading into school:
(I took a picture of them in front of the school too, but I’m not posting it because of potential internet creepers!)
We walked Alivia to her classroom first, here she is at her desk:
Lainey hanging her backpack up (hers is the purple one):
Her best buddy, Emma, was already there waiting for her:
Lainey with her teacher:
This was actually the second day of school, but a couple people have asked me about Alivia’s actual uniform, so this is it:
She has plaid jumpers, skorts, and pants for the winter. The girls in 1st-5th grade have to wear the plaid, and junior high girls can wear navy pants. The shirts have to be either white or light blue. For the first and last months of school the elementary girls can also wear navy skorts or shorts if they choose to.
Oh, and I also got a question about why Lainey doesn’t wear a uniform. The only requirement for the Kindergartners is that they can’t wear jeans, other than that almost anything goes.
Since today was the first day of school for public schools, it was the first day for Lainey (and Alivia) to ride the bus. They get on the bus at daycare, ride that bus to a public elementary school, and then transfer to another bus to go to their school. I was SO nervous when Alivia had to do this in Kindergarten, so I’m glad Alivia is there now to help Lainey!
Waiting for the bus to get there:
Lainey with her friends Janessa and Karys:
Waiting outside now:
I just realized I never posted about something else, which you may have noticed in these pictures…
The girls got their hair cut!
Here is the best before picture I could find:
I just love the way her hair turned out, and it’s so easy for me to do! Lainey’s only complaint is that everyone keeps asking her if she got a perm! The answer is NO!
Alivia’s is so cute too! She got some layers cut into it, and it is also angled longer in the front. I promised her she could grow her bangs out after school pictures, so we’ll see how that goes!
Sorry this post got so long, but I hope you enjoyed all the pictures. Hopefully your kids (and all the teachers out there!) had a great first day/week of school too!
