I mentioned earlier that school started here last week. The school that the girls go to has a strict dress code with a “uniform” required most days. It’s pretty boring–polo shirts in specific colors paired with pants in specific colors or the official school uniform (which used to be all they had!) Throughout the year though, they have specified days that you don’t have to wear the uniform, some days are whatever you want (within reason) and other days have a theme–jeans day, boots day, sweatshirt day, etc. The first day of school is traditionally a “whatever you want” day, so the girls decided to have fun with it picking out the perfect outfits.
Alya and Shivan were all dressed and ready, Shivan was double checking her schedule on the laptop. “Would you quit worrying!” said Alya. “You have checked it so many times, you should have it memorized!”
Kit was dressed and decided to see what Cassandra was up to. “Hey, my outfit looks terrific on you!” Kit exclaimed. “I like yours too, that is really cute” Cassandra replied.
Rebecca was in her room, hoping she hadn’t forgotten anything.
Marie-Grace was all ready to go and was in the kitchen when she heard a knock at the door. When she opened the door, there was Louisa. “Wow, you’re early, you know we don’t leave for another 15 minutes!” Louisa replied, “I know, I was hoping you could help me. My shoes look terrible with this outfit, do you think you have something that would work better?” “I’m sure we do, ” answered Marie-Grace, “did you have a specific color in mind?” “I was thinking pink or something with pink in it.” “Be right back!”
Marie-Grace returned with several different pairs of shoes. “Have a seat right there and see which ones you like.”
“I don’t think these will work, too dressy.”
“Not these either, the color isn’t quite right.”
“Now these…THESE are just perfect!”
“Thank you so much, this is MUCH better!”
Abby and Zara showed up not long after the shoe crisis was averted, and we decided to get some traditional 1st Day Of School pictures of all the girls.
Alya, Marie-Grace and Abby all looked very nice in their outfits. Of course Alya had to wear her hat!
The three oldest girls wanted their photos together. Rebecca, Zara and Cassandra look ready to take on any class.
Louisa, Shivan and Kit all look “pretty in pink”, don’t they? Louisa and Shivan found out that they have lunch together and since they were both nervous about their first day, they decided to take a lunch with them. Shivan wasn’t into it, as you can see she hadn’t even found a shoe to wear yet! Poor Shivan was not looking forward to being the new girl with a cast. 😦
I’m happy to say that the first day went well for everyone and all of the “new girl” jitters are out of Louisa and Shivan’s systems! On to the rest of the school year. 🙂
