1,000 Words: 1st Grade Sierra


It was a big decision to move Sierra from public to private school.  We made the transition between her Kindergarten and 1st Grade years.   A new school meant new friends, new staff and new routines to learn but we decided it was better sooner rather than later.  In hindsight, it was one of the best decisions we ever made. She was actually excited to wear the Catholic school uniform.  She looked adorable in the Peter Pan collar and plaid jumper.  I think I bought her 6 or 7 sets which was ridiculous because those jumpers were as durable as cast iron.  The same, original  jumpers lasted through 3rd grade (only the hems had to be let out for length) when she finally graduated to "the skirt."
