First Day of School

Sora needed a family photo, so we had one taken at camp. The next weekend we all got our crazy long hair cut.
Sora's hair was either braided or looked like this most of the summer. It was so long that it got tangled and was impossible to brush. 

We went to the Olde Letterpress Museum a few weeks ago. It was incredibly way too hot to be in a non-air conditioned building. Other than that, it was pretty cool.
 Sora got to set her type (once she chose from a million fonts) and write her name. She is embracing her middle name lately and finally likes the color grey (we are embracing the British spelling)! She chose to write "Sora Grey" with the letterpress.
And finally, we had our first day of school this week. Even though it was over 90 degrees, my fashion-conscious 7 year old chose to wear this adorably hot outfit.

 We took a few together since it was her first day of 2nd grade and my first day of my 2nd year at her school. She loved the way my hair is blowing in the wind in this picture (I think it was a poorly time hair flip).
 And a more normal picture:
In Sora's school, 1st - 3rd is in the same class, so there isn't a lot drastically different on the surface for her this year, other than learning new things, not being the youngest group in the classroom, and having less teeth.

As far as my first day goes, I was crazy nervous with starting a new school year, especially after not having been in the classroom at the beginning of the last school year (I started out in the daycare and moved to a classroom in the middle of October). BUT, it went fantastic! I am very excited about my 19 students this year and have a great outlook on the school year as a whole. Yeah!
