First day of school……….
Bella I’m so excited for you I can’t stand it and no it’s not because you’re going back to school and I have more free time. It’s because I know how much you’re gonna love being in the Fifth grade.
I know you’ve been freaking out and more than likely have extremely sweaty hands but I have no doubt in my mind that you’re going to be great.
Let’s just call this the year of Growth.
Growth spurts, Growing friendships and a growing mind.
This is your time to grow into the sweet little girl that I know you are. You light up an entire room with your smile alone and have such an Infectious Personality (meaning that your personality rubs off on the people around you).
So instead of being nervous as you get out of the car this morning and walk into your class room for the first time this year, Know that this is the year of Growth and that you have the power to be who you want to be weather it’s a shy girl who’s afraid of change or the little girl who took on the world.
If you Just be yourself and work hard I know that nothing can stop you. And if you still feel nervous after all that, then just tell yourself that you have a mom and dad that know you are and amazing little girl.
Enjoy your day and I love you very much
