My Big Girls!

Guess what I did today!

Parent's sign

Yes my middle girl started school and she looked so very little when she put her school dress on.

A little apprehensive

After initial nerves it all went well and she had a really great day!

A happy new School girl!

And look at what my biggest girl has been up to.

Chloe and Kitty

We made this together and she won a prize over here. Check out all the gorgeous Melly and Me patterns - they are super cute and super easy to follow!

But not as cute as my big girls!!!

Wow! I hadn't realised that was your daughter that had won - very impressed - and a very well deserved win!

So pleased that the she had a nice first day - what a wonderful sign, nothing like that at our school, more barked away with instructions not to loiter!

Just wait till it's Daphne's turn - I am just realizing that the smallest starting school might just be the biggest deal of all for us Mummies! And congratulations Chloe - your kitty looks a well deserved winner!

Tamara said...

Wow, two big girls. Kate started yesterday too. Feel very funny to be sending the two of them off again today. I am sure I will get used to it.
Eddie starting will be a different story!

Glad to hear it all went well for the big Prep girl, Lou! Did you need those tissues? ;) Ben had his first day of 4YO Kinder, so it was wonderful to have the whole day to myself...for a change!

Congratulate Chloe for me, the kitty is gorgeous!

Christie said...

Did you need the tissues? I would have! My son starts kinder next term & I will be a mess.

Your daughter did a great job- congrats!

Congratulations on your daughter's winning the competition! she is really talented - just like her mother! And it was so sweet to see your other daughter starting school. How exciting for all of you but especially for her. Happy weekend to you!

Glad the first day at school went well. I cried every day for the first week when Ruth went (out of sight of course!). Lovely kitty too.

Bless her ! My little one starts in September, she'll be 4.5 yrs and I'll need a BIG box o tissues.

Love the school sign & love the kitty. A very talented daughter you have there.

charliemotel said...

aww your little girls are beautiful! and well done to your daughter on her prize!

Katy said...

Well done on the prize - what a great job!
My smallest started pre school the other week, it was tears all round, I sat in the car for ages blubbing big fat tears (he's been at part time day care for a while but it made me realise only one more year before full time school...he's too small, can't I just keep him for a bit longer???)

Sarah said...

I love that they had tea and tissues. I might require a whole box of tissues when my big girl starts in September. What a talented needle smith you have there!

YoMJ said...

What lovely young girls. Congrats on the win. I love that your daughters are so creative at such an early age. You will be creating together for a long wonderful time.

I have to agree with Ali..it is the smallest one starting that is the sadest thing.
