Back to School: Eve

With Mom going back to school, I forgot to do kids' back to school shopping and favorites. Here's Eve.

Eve--Second Grade

45.5" 44.5 lb.
Favorite food: Spaghetti
Favorite Movie: Ella Enchanted
Favorite Song: "Shut Up and Dance With Me"
Favorite Activity: Art
Favorite TV Show: Teen Titans Go!
Favorite Sport: Soccer 

I can't believe my baby girl is in second grade. The bigger kids each had an adventure week in July that took them away from home, so it was just the two of us for four days. That's when we did Eve's shopping.

Look at that pile of stuff to try on. Every time she tried on a new outfit, her face would light up like this. There's just something about girls and new clothes.
She's beginning to do her own hair, and her 'do of choice is always a side pony tail. This girl should have been born in the 80s when we all rocked a side pony.

After trying on each outfit, Eve would place one leg up on the wall, fold her arms and look into the mirror. "I have to see if this outfit looks cute in 'The Pose.' If it looks cute like this, then I'll get it. If it doesn't, then I won't."
Eve's big decision every year is new shoes. I thought for sure she would choose the black ones, but she decided she didn't want the burden of actually tying shoes this year, so she picked the pink ones.
I'm so excited about Eve's teacher this year. Hyrum had Miss R two years ago (on her first year of teaching), and we loved her. I know Eve will learn so many new, great things this year, and I can't believe how grown up and independent she's getting.

  1. Second grade already?! She was just a baby when I started reading your blog. I Love her sassiness- let me see how I look in this pose...too cute. This was the first year that we didn't do back to school shopping. :( Brady ordered a backpack online and we went to pick it up in store. I felt a bit jipped...I'm trying to learn to let things go that don't matter in the grand scheme of life...but I have to say that I'm struggling a little as my son gets older and more independent. Anyway- hope Eve has an AWESOME year in 2nd grade!!
