I just couldn't contain my enthusiasm for Emma beginning school, so the pictures continued each day...
Second Day of School:
Third Day of School:
Oops... maybe one too many pictures this morning...
Fourth Day of School (making a "K" for "Kindergarten"):
Fifth Day of School:
(another "K" - but how hilarious is Brody in the window? Didn't notice until later!)
Sixth Day of School:
I was done taking pictures (I mean, how long would this go on?), but when it was time to leave, I couldn't find Emma. She was waiting on the porch to have her picture taken! Old habits die hard! (And no, I didn't take a picture. Now I wish I had...)
On the fifth day of school, Emma tried riding the bus to school for the first time. She had wanted to do it from day one, but I wasn't ready. So that morning we drove to the bus stop (it's only a block away but we had to make a quick get-away once she got on!) and got to know a couple other girls who would be riding. She was a little nervous getting on, but she found her seat and waved goodbye!
Addie and Brody and I raced to the school to beat the bus and watch her get off. She was all smiles!
The next couple of bus-riding days were shaky, but now it's old hat. Today she went all on her own and we didn't even follow her to school. A friend and mom of one of Emma's classmates called to tell me that she made it just fine!
Good girl, Emma. You're growing up before my very eyes.
