Big step! Hope she enjoys 4th grade. 🙂
That nostalgic feeling of those first days of many school years as a young girl just came flooding back into my mind as I read this post! Love that you wrote her a little note of encouragement! I'm sure it gave her a little nudge of confidence in her day. 🙂
Aww I hope she enjoys her first day!

Love the message. I bet she felt special!
Been so long since I had a locker. I remember those mirrors and putting things in my door. 😀
