Marah's 1st Day of Pre-School


Let me just say, this little girl was more than ready to start school. She stayed at home with me last year when Macy was born. So she missed out on school. She could not wait for her first day this year. She picked out her clothes and folded everything nice and neat at the end of her bed for morning. She woke right up, put her clothes on and packed her own lunch box. She was READY to go!

The night before we put rollers in her hair. She has been begging for some for awhile now, so I thought I would give them a try. Marah has a thick head of hair and we have been trying to grow it out, so that requires even more maintenance. This hair is a mess after a good night's sleep on it. We have tried every trick in the book for trying to keep it as untangled as possible by morning, but we have lots of trouble!
I'm not quite sure if she is a high maintenance kind of girl, because she can get down and dirty with the best of them. She loves sports and loves playing with her brother and her boy cousins (Carter is her "bud"). I like the half and half thing. She is 50/50 now. She loves dressing up and doing the princess thing as well. We will see in years to come I suppose. I am kind of "go basketball player", but she may be "cheerleader!" Whichever she chooses will be great with me:) I guess - JK!




Mommy will miss her little helper at home, but I know she is probably helping her teacher as much as she can.

She loves her new backpack!

She does look so big and grown up in those pictures, Paige! She looks so cute and happy to be going to school. It'll be nice for you to just have one a few mornings a week. I love her backpack and lunchbox, too. :)

Now Paige, there is nothing wrong with Marah becoming a cheerleader! : ) I'm so glad that she's such a tomboy/princess... she can get rough with the best of them and pretty as can be the next! I'm so glad she loves her school!
