First day of 1st!

Big day today for Miss Rilyn!  Today she started first grade at Manor Elementary!

Last night, we did our family night ‘back to school style’ to get prepared for her big day.  I got the idea and printable from here, a Back to School Survival ‘kit’ with scriptures. So fun and so easy!  (Example:  Rilyn pulls out an eraser from the bag and we talk about that the eraser reminds us that everyone makes mistakes at school and it’s okay.  We then read Genesis 50:15-21 about how Joseph forgave  his brothers.)

This morning was great!  Rilyn was a little nervous because she keeps thinking about getting ‘graded’ this year (versus ‘S’ for satisfactory or ‘E’ for excellent like last year).  We prayed and once she saw her old friends she was great!

I got the idea for making this speech bubble in the top two pictures right here.  (Thanks Kristy for finding this!)

    I hope she had a great day! She looks beautiful! The speech bubble turned out great- I took mine to school today and had teachers write on it for how they were feeling about their first day back- it was funny!
