A Couple Of Firsts
My girls recently went back to school after the long Summer holidays. Victoria was kind of excited and Megan was dreading it. You've gotta do the first day of school photos so here they are. This is my big girl Victoria on her first day of second grade. I already know she is going to have a great year because she got a great teacher. Megan had the same teacher for second grade and she is still one of her favourite teachers to this day. Victoria very proudly showed off her kitty shirt which I think she will be wearing alot. She came home saying she had a great day.
I cant believe Megan actually let me take this photo but I think she wanted to show off her outfit so thats why she agreed. I got up to make her special first day of school breakfast which turned out to be waffles, bacon and some orange juice. Victoria had the same. This is Megan on her first day of 10th grade, I cant believe she is in 10th grade and will be turning 16 in a couple of weeks. I remember talking about her being this age when she was a baby and thinking it seemed impossible she would ever get this age. Oh how time flies when you have children around. Megan was excited about her new outfit she got for the first day of school especially the purple tights. She also loves her new school bag which we have decided will be a bag she will use forever as it fits everything with room to spare as long as it stays in one piece. I still have my bag I got for the first day of 10th grade and we use it all the time.
On the first day of school was also the first varsity girls soccer game. This is Megan's first year in varsity and she was a little nervous but excited to play soccer. It is one of her favourite things to do. Not only was it the first game but here is Megan kicking the first goal for her team. The only goal they scored that day. They may not have won that game but who cares, my baby scored the only goal for her team. That was a great moment.
Here is an action shot of Megan in her fabulous new soccer cleats. Im so glad they are bright yellow because we can spot her easily on the field. She is also excited to be number 7. For some unknown reason 7 is her favourite number and did some trading to be able to be number 7 for the 3rd year in a row.
Fingers crossed for a great school year and many more great firsts. So far we are off to a good start.
