Summer Report

September 17, 2013

Hunter had her very first day of Preschool last Tuesday! My little 2 1/2 year old went to school all by herself and mummy just stood and waved goodbye. I thought her outfit was pretty cool but when Nana saw it she said ‘Did Hunter dress herself for her first day of school? Purple plaid and bright green stripes?’. Nope, I dressed her.

All this back to school got me thinking about the classic first-day assignment, the ‘My Summer’ essay. Every year in elementary school we would have to tell the class about what we did over the summer, and later we would write a little essay on it. While it’s been a few years since I’ve been in class, Emily and I thought we would share our summer photo essays with you. Today is a recap of my summer and stay tuned for Emily’s essay on Thursday!

    I still remember the tears I shed when that happened : )
    I LOVE your daughter’s sneakers and jumper. Cool colours. And a matching hair clip. Tres chic!
