First Day of School
Today is our first day of school. Last night after Havdalah, Froggy wrote her letter to the Backpack Fairy.We tucked it in her backpack, hung the pack on her door along with her first day of school outfit which she picked out all by herself.
The backpack fairy did not get much sleep either and was lame on the job leaving the letter behind unopened and leaving the new supplies and presents on the sofa rather than getting them into the pack to welcome the new student who woke with eagerness far far too early. It is a wonderful thing that little people have such vivid imaginations and are so forgiving because she just accepted all our excuses without letting it spoil her morning one bit. The letter the backpack fairy left in return helped some I think.
Since she was up so early she got to go through her backpack at home and color at the table before school.
See her sporting her new "mommy made" kippah. See mama kvelling.
