Emerson's First Day of School

Against ALL of my protesting, summer is ending and back-to-school is officially here.  

Em decided all on her own that she know wants her friends and teachers to call her Emerson- not Emmie anymore.  No idea where this idea of hers came from, but since Emerson was my name choice and Emmie was Michaels- I'm 100% okay with it!! haha

Ignore the iPhone quality- we got in town suuuuuuuuper late from Delaware the night before- and we were lucky to have a semi-healthy lunch packed for her today! ha! Her teachers always know when we're out of town over the weekend and she comes in with a hodge-podge of a lunch! 

Em lost a lot of her friends to kindergarten so she was a little sad about going back to school today- but we really made her feel important by telling her she needed to be the big helper and help the new kids that would be scared and missing their parents- worked like a charm! That, and I let her wear her "down dress" with slippers, a little Elsa braid so her hair could be long and beautiful, and some sparkly lip gloss for her special day.  ;)

We got a picture in front of this bench on her first day of preschool last year, and the last day of the year too! It will be so fun collecting these and seeing how much she grows during the year!

Emmie took her job VERY seriously- she had to go in and see her best friend from last years' little sister- who was doing just fine, but Emmie gave her a hug and told her she was going to have lots of fun at school! Sweet girl!! :) 

And this last one is so awesome to me! They write their name EVERY morning when they come in to school- this was her first time writing out 'Emerson' and she did SO SO good! (I did have to help with the "S" but geeeeze, let me have my proud mom moment! hahahaha)

I'm excited to see how much she learns this year!!! But hopefully, she stops growing somewhere in there! ;) or at least PAUSES it!!
