Since both my girls were going to be in a new classroom (Ellie for the first time) they attended last week’s half day orientation class at school. It was the first time to wear the backpack for Ellie and it was an opportunity to take the numerous bags of school supplies to their classes.

Ellie got her stuff organized in her new cubby.

She was excited that her friend from the last 2 years of dance, Delaney, is in her class. After lunch with her new friends and teacher the kids got to go outside and play while her teacher, Ashley,  talked to the parents. When she came back in she asked if she could stay. I think that is a good sign. She also gave thanked Ashley and gave her a big hug before we left.
