First Day of Fifth Grade

Caitlin was up before the sun this morning ready and raring to start her 5th grade adventure! I can't say I was that excited, but I was excited for her.
She picked out her new clothes last week...

and we received her backpack and lunchbox from UPS last week also.
I can't believe she is already in the 5th grade!!

Me and my baby girl (Thank goodness she still doesn't mind if I call her that! Although we do have a hand signal for "I love you" so that I don't embarrass her!)

Daddy and daughter before rushing off to school.
I picked her up this afternoon, and she couldn't stop talking about EvErYtHiNg that had happened today! She loves her teacher, her schedule, and most of all.....HER LOCKER!! Apparently that is why most kids look forward to 5th grade--so they can get that coveted locker. I'm so happy she had such a good day! We topped it off with our annual first day of school trip to the ice cream shop.
