in front of school pose (Nicole the sign made Chris think of Jed,lol how sweet!)
Mrs. Lohse introducing her to some kids on the playground and meeting up with Riley!
We took her to school at 8:30 and stayed til 9:00, I watched her through the double doors playing on the playground (parents aren't aloud to be on the playground!) til the bell rang and it was time to line up! It seriously broke my heart to think I just have to let her go and play and meet friends on this huge playground all by herself. I would never let her do that on my watch and now I have to because that's what they do at school, man this sux! I feared she wouldn't find her backpack amongst the other 600 backpacks scattered along the pavement but she did, she then went and stood in line with the 1st graders when the bell rang in stead of finding her class, that was the worst thing just watching her and not being able to help her! I was so scared that she was scared, what a feeling! So once I made sure she was all settled in her class and heard the teacher say to another parent that the sooner the parents leave the better it is for the kids, I made my mopey butt go home. I then did nothing but watch the clock like a nut case, even set my alarm on my cell for picking her up. I got to the school 15 minutes early and just waited and waited with all the other worrier parents out front, finally 12:00 came and here she came with the biggest smile on her face and then went on to tell me every single thing they did and said! It made my day to hear and see how happy she was, she says she loves her teacher, all her new friends and all her new school clothes,lol!
Chris took her this morning alone and I think had a harder time than me with just letting her run off. He said as she walked away to the playground she looked back and said "Dad I'm fine", he called me right away and said he doesn't like all this growing up stuff! Me either!
She wanted to make sure Nana could see her Turtle Capris!
This was all I could do to save this pic!
So as a warning I'm sure I'll be posting pictures of her everyday to show off her and her new school clothes to the Grandparents!

She was very excited to get her picture taken (of coarse!)
We found out her cousin Riley is also in her class!

Lexi and I had a little girls morning, I took her to get her hair cut for the first time at a Salon! I'm hoping this cut makes the mornings easier! I'd hate to have to send her to school every morning with big puffy eyes from crying while I brush her hair!
Of coarse we made it through all summer with no sunburn and the week before school starts, right under her eyes got toasted!
We all love it and she's not so secretly hoping that everyone at school will say "Lexi your hair is sooo cool"! She's such a nut!
