School started for the girls on Wednesday, August 17. I went back to work on August 16 but school didn't start until Monday, August 22. On Tuesday, the girls went to my friend Heidi's to get a trim and highlights. Heidi not only trimmed and highlighted their hair, but also styled it. Here is Ella after her trim, highlight and style. She is turning into such a sweet and beautiful girl.
|She wanted a picture that really showcased her highlights.|
Ella is starting 6th grade and Gabby is entering 3rd grade (the same grade I teach!) I think it is going to be a really good year for all of us. Gabby was super nervous on the first day. Her teacher is brand new at their school and most of her friends were in a different class, but Alyssa is in her class. She got scared enough before school started that there were a few tears. But she loved it!! She loves her classroom and loves her teacher.
