School Daze Have Begun!

Emma completed her first week of preschool and she's loving it! She attends a Monday/Wednesday program from Each morning she wakes up rearing to go. She has her backpack on all through breakfast. Never mind the fact that she is still in her jammies.

On her first day we had a discussion on the ride to school about proper behavior- use our words not our hands, play nice with our friends, keep our dress down. Then we said a little prayer in hopes to calm both our nerves and remind us that God is watching over us always (even when were anxious for our first day of school, mom and daughter a like!).

I was a nervous Nelly dropping her off that first time, but she gave me a quick peck on the cheek and bolted off to join her 'boyfriend' Wes without a second glance in my direction. I may have shed a tear or two in the parking lot. It pulled at this momma's heart strings yet I'm so glad she looks forward to each school day.

When I picked her up in the afternoon, I was informed by her teacher that Miss Emma either needs to wear a pair of shorts under her dresses or opt for pants. Guess that speech on the way to school didn't work... Emma informed me that she only had to move once because her and Wes were talking while they were supposed to be listening and learning their Bible verse. Those teachers sure have their work cut out! She also believes she has the right to sit next to Weston at all times, however there are other kiddos that like to sit next to him which is not okay with her. So glad she has a buddy in class, but i hope she learns some of her other classmates' names by the end of the school year.

We love you big girl and are so proud of you! We're looking forward to watching you as you change and grow in the next few months. I pray that you enjoy school and your love for learning new things does not diminish!
