Most people feel as if Vada was gypped of a summer vacation, being that she attends a multi-track school where her summer vacation is a grand total of about three weeks. But to be honest, she starts to lose her marbles after a few weeks of being deprived hot lunches and recesses with all of her friends.
Today was her first day as an Official Second Grader. She met her teacher, saw friends she hasn't talked to all "summer", and ran into her first grade teacher.
As she stood in line waiting for Mrs. Clark to lead the students from the playground to the classroom, she looked somewhat out of place. She is one of the tallest kiddos in her class. Her and two other girls are tall enough to pass for third graders! At least I know that I'm not the only one who has difficulty finding their child a bathing suit that fits properly. There are at least two other mothers in this town who share my frustration.
For those of you whose children have not yet started back to school, this years female fashion is SUPER high top Converse All-Stars worn with Capri pants. This pairs well with a graphic tee consisting of your child's cartoon of choice. To really pull the look together, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Vada has chosen this hounds tooth cap to balance out her garb. If you need any advice regarding second grade apparel, feel free to contact me and I will consult with my assistant Vada and get back to you ASAP.
Can't wait to see what is "in" next year!
