First Day of Sixth Grade (Echo Park Note to Self)


First day of sixth grade. My baby, off to middle school. She was good and ready. Me? Not so much! This is going to be such a big year for her. She has a locker, about a dozen teachers and has already made some new friends. She has to get herself to each class, on time, with everything she needs for that class. It's going to be so hard for me to stay pretty much "hands off" with all of this so she can grow her wings and figure it all out for herself.
Pin It!

  2. The perfect page to document this milestone. I LOVE that newspaper background. It gives the page a newsy feel. The pops of red look great and of course the usual fabulous layering is all there! Such a sweet pic of A too.

  11. Love this layout and your daughter looking so earnest and full of promise!
    This is such a wonderful age. I remember grade 6 so clearly and it seems like such a short time ago that my daughters were in grade 6. (They are 36 and 38 now!!!
    Grade 6 is such an exciting year. i could see the metomorphis (sp) so clearly of my child becoming an adult. They started to make decisions on their own...some of them just amazed me.
    They were taken with stories of others kindness and tried to build on that pwithin themselves. I remember my youngest daughter went on a weekend retreat and found out that one 71 year old nun made all the guest beds every morning. It was something like 50 or 60 beds.

    After that, my daughter got up every Saturday morning and went and helped make beds for a year. Sometimes she brought a friend to help too!

    You are going to have such a fun year with your daughter.
