I love looking at all the back-to-school pics on social media this time of year.

One of my sassy, fun (and kid-less) Facebook friends said just now, "Um...Did school start?"  Haha! What makes you say that?!

Yeah...maybe we parents are guilty of overloading Facebook with backpack pics, but we don't have anything else exciting going on. Sideways wink!

This is my oldest kiddo, Finley, on her first day of 1st Grade this morning.

The first day of kindergarten was happy/sad last year, but day one of 1st Grade was just happy today.  She was a tad timid because she's at a new school with new classmates, but excited too.  I high-fived her and said, "You got this!"  And we'll celebrate the end of the first day with ice cream later.

Her teacher may get her teeth!  She has a lot of loose ones, and some of those may fall right out into that hot pink pencil box that was on the list of school supplies.  But I'm sure the teacher - the guardian of 6 and 7-year olds - is super used to that.

Side bar.....Her teacher's name is Buzan and she was having trouble pronouncing it, and one of my goofy friends tried to get her to remember it saying BOOZE-on.  See, the great 1st grade lessons are already beginning!  ;-)

Have a great year Finley.  Mama loves you.
