We had a bit of a challenge getting a decent "first day of school" picture. For some reason, the phrases "stand up straight", "look at me" and "smile nicely" just don't compute for Annika. :P She has a tendency to do this weird thing where she curls her upper lip in (looks kind of like a squirrel face to me) or she looks away or tilts her head or sticks out her tummy...
She picked out her outfit herself. I wouldn't have necessarily chosen the lime green capris to go with that jumper, but oh well. Some things just aren't worth a fight (and they weren't that visible anyways). I was just happy that she finally fit into that jumper! I bought it probably about 2 years ago, and it's (mis)labelled a size 3 (but probably more like a 5 - it's even a little loose on her now).
We got to school a few minutes early, so she had time to play on the swings before it was time to go in (it was a bright sunny day, so she's squinting in these pictures).
Found her name and hook! It was in the same place as last year. :)
She had a great first day and she's looking forward to going back. On the drive home yesterday she kept saying, "when I go to school tomorrow...." and I had to keep reminding her that she'd have to wait 2 days to go back. :)
