First Grade is cooler

After her first day of first grade this week, Haylie declared: "First grade is cooler than kindergarten because I have my own desk." Haylie loves her new desk and tells me about how she keeps it organized with her pencil box, markers, books and notebook. We are so proud of our little first grader!!

Taking her on the first day of school:
Nanny and Cathy came for a pancake breakfast to celebrate Haylie, pray for her and then send her off on her big day:
Checking out her desk:

Now that the first week is down, Haylie's favorite things so far include: her new desk, playing games in class and chasing the boys with her friend Allie at recess! Her least favorite thing: writing. According to her: "It's hard work!"
