Obligatory pictures. We are lucky her arm swelling went down and her cast was replaced. We couldn't fit any of her clothes over her elbow! The girl would have been wearing tank tops and undershirts to school. Not exactly in the bounds of the dress code.
Amelia was on a little camping trip with her grandma when we went backpack shopping. Tess picked out both of them. She did a great job. Last year Amelia wanted a messenger bag. After the first week of school, she came home and begged for a backpack. It was so heavy on her tiny body. When we asked her this year if she wanted a messenger bag she told us not til she grows a foot or two.
It was hard leaving Tess. Like, really hard. I cried. A lot. She just seemed so small and so tiny. I feel like I was feeding her to the wolves. I'm totally not. She has a darling teacher. We went and worked in her classroom on Friday and got to know her. She will be great. Tess has been so awesome this summer. She is sweet and fun and loves to hang with me and help. I will miss her terribly. Terribly!
