Violets Very First Day Of School...EVER!

I didn't forget pictures of Miss Vi, she simply didn't start school until today. This is a day she has been waiting for since we first started dropping Tage off at The River Academy. Over the last 2 years she has been well aware of where her first class room would be and who her first teacher would be thus paving the way for an easy transition this morning! She had no problems getting up, was happy to have her hair brushed, and made sure to hop right into the car when it was time to go. Once we arrived at school she walked herself in and really wanted me to leave...she had work to do. I love her ability to be social when she needs to be and am thankful for moments displayed in the last picture below, reminding us that she is still "little" and not quite ready to run with the big dogs (her brothers)!

I love her little back pack. It is a flower with leaves as the straps, so fitting for our sweet Violet!

Oh my, I can't stand it! They are darling aren't they!

Tage is going to be her protector! He is READY for the job, and Vi keeps reminding him how important it is...:)

Getting comfortable with her surroundings.

Hard work and obedience is exhausting!

What a darling young lady! What a blessing to have so many brothers to take care of her!

So exciting for her! She looks so grown up--except in the one picture Ben looks as tall as her--is he getting that big??
