Back to School

We're Back!!!!  Not just back to school, but back to blogging!!!!  After taking a summer break from the computer, we are back to a bedtime schedule and hopefully I'll be back to regularly blogging!!!  Thanks to all my friends that asked me (or hounded....and you know who you are.  lol) about where I've been.  I'm just glad someone else besides me even looks at this thing!!

Emily had a great first day of school.  She started the First Grade and we couldn't be happier with her teacher, Mrs. Stewart.  We've heard only good things about her, and let me tell you, that does a mother's heart good!!!!

I like to have her name on her shirt of for the first day of school just to help the teacher.  I want to thank my Mother for making Emily's shorts.  They were so cute and it made the day a little bit more special. 

This morning felt like the beginning of Fall!!!  It was a nice break form the heat and it was also nice that my camera didn't fog up on me when I walked outside!!!!  lol

Em's backpack came from Walmart and we had the vinyl letters put on it at Just Amy's.  She does a wonderful job and thanks to Aunt Maggie for picking it up for us!!!!  Emily added a few extra things to it to make it cool.

Of course Gracie had to get in on the action!  I've been asking Emily forever what grade she's going in, and when I ask Gracie she says, "Preschool....but not yet"!!!  Your right not yet!!!  I'm gonna keep her with me as long as I can!!!  Our plan is for her to start Preschool next year.  I hope this year goes by slow!

I had a lot of friends who's little one's started Kindergarten this year, and I so remember how they feel!!!  Your excited and sad all at the same time.   After the first year, it gets a little easier to let them go to school.  But then I've already started thinking about when Emily graduates.  Why I do that to myself, I have no idea!  It seems like forever before that day gets here, but you know it feels like I just brought her home from the hospital and she is now starting First Grade. 

Boy time flies!!!!  Man, I hate admitting everyone was right about that!!  LOL. 

Stay tuned.  I have a few things to fill you in on that happened this summer.
