And I quote..."First Grade Rocks!!"

This was our destination this morning....

Well, actually this was! (Recognize the candy from the Jacob's guest post?)

This was one very EAGER little girl, who, actually woke up in a GOOD mood at 7:15 a.m. so that she could get there!

After all the primping took place it was time for the traditional photoshoot..

This is Kenners "pretending" as if she is about to go out the front door and we NEVER go out the front door since our car is in the garage far from the front door.  And the funny part is once I grabbed my camera this is where she went, she knows me too well!

It's just tradition...everyone of my first day of school pics are this, but we actually did go out the front door, so that's probably why ;)

OK now I feel a little silly

Ok last posing pic...we had to go we were running late...I can get carried away!

This is her actually arriving at school, not my front door : )

And we have arrived...1st Grade was finally here, YIPPPEEE!

Grace was there (the BFF and first cousin) who hugged her like she had not seen her in a decade, when actually she saw her less than 12 hours before this...soooo sweet!

A few more hugs, she actually hadn't seen these girls all summer...they really did miss each other!

Thats her way back in the corner waving BYE BYE...that was a hint for me to PAALEASE quit taking pictures

Daddy and Eli wouldn't have missed this for the world, ok maybe Eli ;)

We have come to the best part...

After Daddy picked her up at school, which was a surprise...She comes flying through the door saying "First Grade Rocks"....Words I pretty much loved to hear...maybe she will wake up tomorrow as eager to get to school as she did this morning.

I thought this was a perfect opportunity to get in a few jumping shots since this is how she really felt!!! Bear with me it took a couple of tries before we really got it, but it was pretty fun!


After bribing her with food to tell me all about's the breakdown

1.She loves her teacher
2. Her words, "Mom she is sooooo nice!"
3. Gym was so fun!
4. I can't wait until tomorrow!

You just can't get better than that folks!

 She went to her room and less than 10 minutes later I found this...

One worn out First Grader ; )

Off to get ready to do it all over again

So cute, enjoy these days. The major reason she has that attitude is due to Mom and Dad being such a positive and supportive part of her life right now. Good work.

This was the sweetest post! So glad she LOVES first grade. Clearly it wore her out. (Love the sleeping princess picture). Enjoy these years. They are the best and will pass way too quickly.

LOVED all the pictures! Especially the front porch poses. =) I'm so glad that Kennedy loves her teacher and school. WOW! What a blessing! =)

YAY Kennedy!!! I'm glad she had a good first day, I was a little worried about her having to stay awake until 3:00 lol!!!

I love this and can't tell you how much I felt as if I had gone back in time! You are so much like me (Don't get scared or anything...) We took a traditional first day of school picture by the fireplace every year like you do by the door. I would also have been the photo mom shooting away while Dad stood by and smiled.

Good grief...we even have the best friend/cousin thing going on around here. Who knows? Maybe your little besties will end up together throughout college like ours did.

I just love everthing about your little family! Tell the husband that I think his candy rocks as much as first grade!

She is such a little doll!
