My Sophmore!

First day of school today! Almost forgot to take a picture...oops! She is not happy having her picture taken with her bike helmet on! Hates wearing it .....messes her hair ya know! I'm pretty sure that thing comes off the second her Dad turns the corner! Backpack loaded down with every school supply and locker gadget know to German mankind, all matchy and accessorized ready to rock the 10th grade!! That's my girl!

Awh she looks soo cute. I hope she does great in school. How are the schools out there? It reminds me of my family growing up. I miss being soo close with family. I think I just rolled a tear.

My mom use to take photos of us every year of our first day. Oh how I would not like it growing up, but now it is fun to look back on. I love how her bike matches her outfit. Fun and pinky! Enjoy school my friend and learn all that you can. Kathy what will you do now that you have the house to yourself for a bit? xoxo

I use to love the first day of school- everything fresh and new. How is it going? New attitude and bee pollen helping? Call me!

What a wonderful photo to have! Please wish your 10th grader tons of good wishes for a year full of learning new things and making new friends.
I always loved the new beginnings of a new school year and all the trappings.

She's pretty :-) Does go to an actual German school, or an English-speaking one?

Wow, are the schools there going back already? I'm sure they only just finished here!

I used to walk to the corner and take off everything my parents made me wear and then I'd go to school and throw out the apple I got every day. I just recently told my mother that and she was shocked.

K said...

Love the outfit. She looks great for her big day.

Somer Love said...

SO CUTE!!! I want that bike! Does it have a bell?

Lisa said...

I love the outfit and matching bike. She looks ready to go! I especially like that she has a sweater on. The poor kids around here are going to school in 100' weather. There is no way to dress for that kind of school day! Hope she has a great year!

Bobbi said...

She looks so cute!

I'm with her, I know I always ditched my snow hat the second I turned the corner whenever my mom made me wear one to school. If she had made me wear a helmet to ride my bike I would've done the same thing.

Life With Dogs said...

Soon it will be the car keys. Think you can get her to drive with the helmet? :)

Libby Murphy said...

Oh what a great picture! She's adorable even with the helmet and I love those pink flats on her little feet.
Happy Twirls

What a great picture! She looks so excited.

So I need more details about West Chester. Where did you go to school? I went to West Chester East.

What a wonderful photo that Katelyn will treasure in just a few years to come. Your girl is as cute as a button. I hope she has a great sophomore year!

She's lovely and I really like the bike. My husband and I have two cruisers; they are so much fun.
