Today was the beginning of the new school year for Ebony.
This year she is in year 5 and is looking forward to all the new stuff that she will learn.
We always go and see her off to school on the first day-something of a tradition really.
I thought that she would not want us to go this year but she still wanted us to be there as long as we didn't kiss or cuddle her in public.
She has a school uniform-which includes the top she has on which has her school logo on it-plus a pleated skirt or shorts and a hat.
Today she decided to be herself and wear her three quarted leg pants instead of her skirt and left her hat at home.
She is supposed to wear her hat because of the sunshine and we hadn't realised that she didn't bring it with her.
Now can you blame her really with all the hair that she has and the hat sits on top like an umbrella.
But most of all please take notice of the shoes-------
She has a black pair of these shoes and a pink pair and a camoflage pair as well and has decided to wear a different coloured shoe on each foot.
I wonder how long this craze will last.
May be odd sox will be next.
Here she is with her best friend Lily.
They were so happy to see each other as they hadn't been together since school broke up six weeks ago.
They have been friends since pre-school -through kinder and then every class since.
And how they have both grown.
