First Grade Rocks!

So last weeks theme for my photography workshop was connection.  I immediately thought of this shirt.  It was still in the box.  When I saw it online I thought of school photo session right away but since I'm not a bling on the shirt kind of mom I still had it tucked it away.  And then this assignment came up.  I knew just what I wanted to do!  Abigial's teacher so graciously let me into the classroom for a few minutes after dismissal last Friday.  I didn't want to take up much of her precious weekend time so I worked quickly.  I told Abigail to climb up on her desk, "like sit on my DESK?" and that was it.  She put on her rock face and these are my favorites.

Oh man!

So glad I have this image!

At the end I asked her teacher to jump in a few.  It was wear words on your shirt day (perfect for Abigail) and Read Across America / Dr. Seuss's birthday day.

I love that she loves her teacher.  May she always have a two handed hug, cheek to cheek kind of teacher... forever and always... 

And it's a wrap!  Think she'll let me do this every year?
