Yesterday was the first day of school. Sara is now a junior, Victoria is in 3rd grade and Emma has finally started kindergarten. I say "finally" because she has asked me all summer, "How many more days until school starts?". Emma went for only 2 hours as a get to know the teacher day, while Sara and Victoria went until 12:20. Today is the first full day of school. I thought Emma would be a bit nervous today, but no.... she went right in with no problem. I think it bothered me more then her. I also think she is comfortable knowing that her cousin Nicolas is in her class and Victoria and Mark are also there. Mom and Aunt Buster came to see the kids yesterday before they went in. The kids love that!!! It is so sweet of them to take time for the kids - always! The worst part is that Victoria and Emma enter and exit school on total opposite sides of the building. So far I have been lucky to get a parking spot in the middle and we walked Victoria to her line then I took Emma to hers. When the weather gets cold out, I will use the drop off zone in the morning. It is so quiet in my house right now... not sure what to do about that. I will be venturing into the girls bedroom to clean and throw out a bunch of stuff while they're not home. I don't want to waste anytime. For all of you with kids, I hope your first week at school goes well.
Emma by her door - very first day of school ever!!! WooHoo Emma
