It's just so more real with every milestone

Every event - that our little Princess is growing up so fast. Just the other day (ok in January 2007) she went to school for the very first time. She was all of 2 years old and desperately needed the social interaction.

 Yesterday I watched my little girl all dressed up in her big school uniform. Excited and ready to go to grade 1. Not so sure if the mom is ready to go to grade 1 but I guess that is totally irrelevant.

They are allowed to wear their big school clothes to pre-school this week as part of making that going to grade 1 a bit easier. BTW - I was rather impresesed by the practicality of their uniform - a skort (short with skirt front) for playing and a golf shirt.

  1. Cute! She looks so big, especially compared to her smaller version ;-)
    Big milestone!

  2. She looks so good in that school uniform. Can understand the "knop in jou keel."

  3. My little one starts pre-school next year and I am already crying. Its awful to even think of them going to "big school". Good luck with this big milestone. Think of The Prophet. You are the bows from which your children
    as living arrows are sent forth.

  4. Ja nee, ek stem saam met die "knop in die keel" oomblik. Sy het 'n groot meisie geword.

  5. Oh my friend, am so with you on this. They grow up FAR too quickly and I felt the same way with Polly starting Gr R at her new school this year.

    next Year D is off to High School - groot 'knop in die keel' oomblik!

    Sterkte en liefde xx

  6. She looks great in her big-school uniform. I think a skort is such a great idea.

  7. Awww...she does look so grown up in her uniform. I cried when Child1 started school - obviously not in front of him - but it was the end of one era and the beginning of a whole new one.

  8. she looks so grown up and beautiful!! I hope Grade 1 gets off to a good start and goes well!

  9. That does look like a very practical uniform!

    Aaaw, that first picture is so cute. You better pack a big pack of tissues for day 1.


So what's on your mind?
