First Day of School and Birdie Love

Well it is hard to believe, but I have a fourth grader! Lexi was so excited to be going back to school this morning.

This is the first year I have let her ride the school was she thrilled!

Also, my new lamp came in.......I just LOVE it! I was browsing the Penney's online furniture and categories (still on the hunt for furniture for Lexi's room make-over) and came across this. It is from the Linden Street line.

Oh, she looks so excited. I'm on a lamp hunt as well. I actually want new lamp shades. I can't find what I want so I may turn to the catalogs. That bird lamp is darling.

Ohhhh I love the back to school photo's of Lexi~ Makes me sad that the only child I have left going to school will be driving to school this year!
Okay subject change before I start to weep... LOVE the bird lamp! Love it!

Hi Darlene~ Thanks for the comment on my post. I've seen your comments on other posts. We must like the same ones! This is my first time visiting you though and I'm glad I did. I love the bird lamp!

I have tears in my eyes. It just seems like yesterday my "little" girl was prancing around--getting all excited for school to start! What wonderful memories--well, most of 'em :-) Her new hair cut is adorable! I just roared when I saw the baby blocks border!! That is something I would do. The new color and trim sound very nice and "age appropriate" ;-) I hope Lexi enjoyed her first day of school year 08-09! Also, I love it that she's a dancer, too. So was my girl. We spent many a dollar on classes and costumes. dana

Wow, school already! She looks so happy to be going, too! lol

My older son doesn't start til Sept. 3 and I doubt that he is looking forward to it;)

My little guy will be starting preschool and I am not sure if he is looking forward to it yet or not either....BOYS! lol ;) I loved school!

Your new lamp is so pretty! JCP really has some nice decor now, I love getting their little catalogs in the mail now :)

Happy back to school! :o) This is the first year my 4th grader rides the bus to and from school too!

LOVE that lamp!!

Dawn said...

Lexi looks happy and ready to be starting school. My son will be starting 4th grade this year too! He goes to the school I teach at in a different town so there is no bus available for him. He gets a ride every day from either mom or dad LOL!

take care,
