Oh, oh, oh it's magic

It's the first day of school !!!
Eva wanted to make a statement on her first day. She looks tame for her. School has been a struggle for Eva and many a day its been a fight to get her on the bus.  If she wants to dress crazy or have a wild hairdo I let her go just as long as she gets on that school bus.
Not sure how long the tote bag will work for her. It's huge!  I tried to talk her out of it, we still have last year's book bag as back up.

Her teacher this year is Mrs. Mars. I figure she has been a third grade teacher for a few years so she has to have a sense of humor. I'm sure she has endured many wisecracks about her last name. With any luck I won't get a phone call about Eva making some comment about her teacher being an alien or worse.

The sun is shining and I'm dyeing more bags and working on fall leaves for a store window.

I'm home alone!!

Oh, oh, oh, it magic ( the first day of school) you know, never believe it's not so...

  1. That is a huge bag, sure she won't walk with a limp after carrying it all day.
    I can't believe how heavy these bags are that the kids have to carry today.
    I will have that song in my head all day now, I remember it well. My son Jay (now 24) was known for speaking his mind so I remember some of those
    phone calls from school. Enjoy your time alone! xox Corrine
