Lily’s First Day of School (4 months late!)


I still can’t believe I’m just now posting these pictures! I finally got the camera card from my mom so I can blog about my sweet Lily Mae’s first day of Kindergarten! Well, as you know, I was in the hospital having Colby when Lily had her first day of school. Once I realized this would be the case, I was crushed! How could I miss my baby girl’s very first day of school?!! But, there was nothing we could do. My parents watched the kids and were Lily’s “parents” for the week! They took her to school and picked her up. We were so thankful to not have to worry about those details-my parents handled it all. Thankfully, since Colby was born the day before Lily’s first day, AJ was able to meet Lily and my mom at her school so he could be with her on her first day. I had strict instructions for my mom to come to my house (even though Lily and Jameson were staying at their house!) and take pictures with this chalkboard. I had visions people! I’m very thankful my mom went along with my crazy plans :)

How cute is this girl?!!!! She’s so grown up.





In front of her classroom.


Proof that she really is a student there!


Putting her back pack in her cubby.


Oh this picture just melts my heart. When my mom showed it to me (she printed off these pictures to show me in the hospital-how sweet is that?!) I got teary eyed. I so wanted to be there, but was thankful AJ was there!! She sure loves her daddy!


Showing her teacher pictures of her new baby brother. My mom had also printed off 2 pictures of Colby for Lily to show on her first day of school. Love it!


And finally, at home together at last! I love this picture. It truly shows how much Lily LOVES being a big sister! (and how tiny Colby was!) She’s so helpful with Colby and always wants to hold him, play with him, pick out his clothes, and kiss his face.

Now, 4 months later, Lily loves school and is learning a TON! It’s SO fun to hear her actually reading books. She is very smart, which I kind of already knew, but it definitely shows with her school work! She is super quick in learning new things and loves to show me pictures she has drawn in school. We love our Lily Mae!

Looks like your mom and husband did a great job filling in for you. I can sympathize with wishing you had been there. It always feels like your time and attention get cut in half with a new baby. Glad Lily is doing so well in school. It's a great school.
