First day of school.

{this was supposed to post this morning. my internet was having issues}


Today is quite possibly my last first day of school.
ever.
{but maybe not. PhD anyone?! no.}
that's weird to me.

I did the {basic} math and realized that this is my 20th first day of school.
I bet my mom's so proud! :)

I can still remember my first day of real school, wearing my hair in a ponytail with a massive bow/clip thing, a denim skirt, ruffle socks, and white shirt with my brand new backpack {that I got for my bday!}
We always took our pictures outside on the sidewalk before the bus picked us up. And the early morning sun behind me...
{still have that picture, mom?}

But since I don't live in the pretty country house on that lonely gravel road anymore, and I don't really need a big 'ol backpack {since I only have one class today}...
we'll have to settle for this less than exciting first day of school picture.

yes, I cut my head off. on accident. whoops!

Here's to 20 years of education!
{too nerdy??}


and yes, I know this is blurry. It was a picture-fail kind of morning.

...and here's to {hopefully} acing another fellowship interview this afternoon!
{which, btdubs...went ahhhhmazingly!!!}

Yay for first days of school! I still have 2 weeks until my student start...but I get to do first days of school every year! AND it seems sooo silly, but I can barely sleep the night before school starts because of all of the nerves/excitement!

Yikes! 20 firsts?? That's a lot. ;)

But yay for this being your possible last first.

Your 1st picture is pretty good..the whole no head shot is actually in believe it or not. So, I approve. ;)

Best to you on the interview!!
