ella's first day of school!

Today was a big day! Well a big day for me:) I'm sure I'm making it out to be a way bigger deal than it really is but I was just so excited about it! Ella started her first day of school today!

My mom drove to Lubbock yesterday to be here with me while I took Ella to school this morning. (see where I get my excitement from) She knew it was a big day too and she didn't want to miss out. We were up till 1 last night making labels for her backpack, nap mat and lunch box.

I had so much fun busting out my old laminating machine. This is something my mom got me maybe like 10 years ago and I have pulled it out for so many random things to laminate. It's perfect for small projects. I typed Ella's name out and just cut and glued a label from card stock. Then I put it through the machine and it laminated them. I punched a hole through it and tied it on with a ribbon.

I sent Ella off with a lunch packed of her favorite things. A turkey bagel sandwich, cheeto puffs, cajun crackers (best things ever), strawberries and oranges and a few mini chips ahoy.

She did awesome when we dropped her off this morning. She walked right in and started playing. Her teacher is so wonderful and I just love her! I can't wait to pick her up and hear how today went!
