"Back to school. Back to school, to prove that I am not a fool. I've got my lunch packed up, my shoes tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Oooooh, back to school." -Billy Madison
Well, it's that time of year again. Back to school for Ella B and her mommy. The little devil has grown out of the butterfly room and into the Bumblebee room. Here she is on her first morning as a Bumblebee. She loves her new classroom and her new friends, but still has a really hard time each morning when we drop her off. Thursday was especially difficult because somebody bit her on the arm! I figure it was bound to happen some time and I'm kind of glad that she wasn't the first one to do the biting. Her teachers applied some ice and some love, so I think she will be okay.
Ella B also spent one of my first days at work with me. Here she is at freshman orientation day wearing her Link Crew t-shirt with her mommy. She loved meeting all the kids and running around the gym, and I loved showing off my little nugget.
It's hard to believe that it is time to begin the school year again. I keep thinking about what a little baby she was last year and how I spent my first day back at work pumping and crying on the way to school. Oh what a difference a year makes. Now it is all smiles and no big deal for these two ladies. We love our time together, but we're okay apart, too and that's what growing up is all about, I guess.
Good luck to everybody heading back to school and watch out for Irene!
