First Days of School

Gracie had the best first day of school.  The night before she told me several times that she was scared.  We did all we could to reassure her that she had nothing to worry about and how much fun she was going to have.  All was well, and then right when we turned the corner to her room, there was this little boy that was having a come apart right in front of her classroom door.  I started to panic because I was worried Gracie would think she had something to worry about and just loose it.  But there was no need to worry.  Gracie turned to me and said "Bye Mom" and went and sat on the carpet in front of the teacher.  She didn't look happy, but she wasn't crying so I was okay with that.  I decided to leave before things changed.  Whew!  All went well.  When I picked her up, she was all smiles and telling me all about her day!  Makes me happy that she's happy.

Emily started on a Monday.  She was not that fired up about school starting, but was happy about her new teacher and seeing her friends.  Although Emily's been at this whole school thing for a couple of years now, I still feel sad when she has to start school.  It means she's getting bigger.  I want her to stay little forever!  But that's not the way it's to be, so you must press forward.  Ha Ha.  I love her so very much and I can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for her.
