The big day

Today was Leoni's 1st day at school! She had been very excited over the past few days and when she got up this morning ( 7:30, I actually expected it to be earlier :-), she was dressed in no time without me having to remind her as I usually have to and she was ready to go by about 8am. School starts at 9 though, so we had nearly and hour to fill. What Leoni didn't know was, when we went to Germany last month we brought this "thing" back, that she's holding in her arms. Every child in Germany gets one of these cones on their 1st school day, filled with goodies and sweets. She saw them in the shop windows and was very sad, that she wouldn't have one on her first day. But my mum had already bought one and we smuggled it home whithout her knowing :-) You can imagine that it was a real surprise!

Oh, she's so cute. Did you feel a little sad as you waved her in?

I'm delighted to see the photos of her all ready in her uniform. We still have a couple more weeks until school starts and I wave my boy off. I hope it all went well for you both.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I didn't cry when she went in and I was just a tiny little bit sad, nevertheless it is the start of a new chapter in our lives...But Leoni really enjoyes it and that's all that counts.
