Our cute carpool gang! I love these girls!
Ellie was so excited for school to start---
sometimes she admitted and sometimes she didn't :)
Back to her old stomping grounds---loving every minute of it.
I can't believe she is a 4th GRADER!!!!
My Kate was so nervous...
She is entering 2nd GRADE at a new school for her.
She had been on the waiting list since last year.
She wasn't sure about entering a new school---
without friends she knew and teachers she recognized.
I was nervous for her---
and felt a little guilty for being the cause (insisting on the new school) of this change.
I arrived early to pick them up---and saw them both happily rushing to car!
THEY LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!
The first thing Kate said to me, "Two girls asked me to be their friend!"
I was so relieved and happy for her!
Those two girls made such a difference that day!
Kate has been excited every morning walking into school and each day as she has left.
I hope to be a person that has that kind of positive influence on people around me.
I want to look for those who are new or sitting alone.
Very small acts of kindness and gestures of friendship can make a big difference.
