First Grade...First Day

Thoughts of being a little girl and my first days of school have been swirling around in my head this past week as I have heard Moms talking about getting their children ready for school and as I have talked to Colette about her going to first grade.  I loved preparing for school.  My mom would take me shopping for school clothes, which meant dresses and black and white saddle oxford shoes.  We would make a special day of it by riding the bus downtown.  I always loved the smell of new crayons and liked having new pencils.  I walked to school, walked home and back for lunch and then walked back home when school was over.  I love remembering those fun, carefree days.

Today Colette dressed in her new dress with matching shoes.  She had her school supplies and a picture for her new teacher telling her that she loves school.  She will eat lunch at school and I will be there to pick her up this afternoon when school is over.  I look forward to hearing all about her first day in first grade!  Such a big event in a little girl's life!  I am thankful to be a part of her life!

Awww, she's cute! To answer your question on the apple slab recipe, buttermilk powder is just powered buttermilk, might be hard to find but any good health food store should carry it if you can't find it at your local grocery store.
