And so it begins… again.
I think this is a tradition that we will keep up, its just too cute an opportunity to pass by and to see how much she grows each year is just astounding!
When you see someone every single day of the year of course you notice them getting older but you don’t actually realise just how much, not until you see pictures side by side of the start of each school year.
September the 5th for the past 4 years have seen Evie put on her new uniform and head out to school. In that time she has also been to 3 different schools and coped amazingly, she has a little wobble at first but within a day or two she has new besties and loves everything about it! She seems to make friends easily and although a little shy at first soon comes out of her shell, Evie is a total princess though and having reached the grand age of 7 she knows what she likes and what she doesn’t….and isn’t afraid to tell you!
Pink, purple, unicorns, fairies, rainbows, glitter, Shopkins, Our Generation Dolls, mermaids, ice cream, chocolate (but only if it has been in the fridge), baseball boots, playing on her Kindle, going to the park, Silver Cross prams (the old big kind), dogs and pizza.
Dirt, the dark, early nights, loud music, dark colours, the rain, sharing, having her little sister upset, mushrooms, spicy food, PE.
At the moment she is refusing to have her hair cut which makes for awkward photographs, especially since she jumped while I was cutting her fringe (seriously WTF?!) Her hair has always been a mass of wild curls and knots up with the simplest of touches, it can be in a plait first thing in the morning and a ball of tats by lunch!
Evies favourite saying at the moment is ‘RUDE!’ or ‘You are just mean’… this is her favourite when you try and tell her what she can’t do. I suppose it could be worse and she says it with such an air about her that you can’t help but laugh!
I plan to do one of these each year and can’t wait to see the comparisons of how much she changes, not just looks wise but temperament and likes/dislikes too.
