First Day of School
Here is Ella on the first day of second grade. She's grown so much since kindergarten and first grade. She was so excited for school to start, she even took an apple for her teacher. The poor apple was pretty bruised by the time it got to school I'm afraid. First I put it on the table for Ella, but Emilia climbed up on the table, stole the apple, and hid it in the bathroom. She thought it was a ball. (That doesn't explain why she hid it in the bathroom, but this is Emilia we're talking about, after all.) Then I rescued the apple and handed it to Ella, who promptly dropped it. Who knows how many times she dropped it on the way down the hall once she got to school. But it's the thought that counts, right?
