First Day of School!

My baby started first grade this year, and it's been hard on her mommy. I just can't believe she is in the first grade going to school all day long. She was pretty excited this morning to get to school. Last night Bert and my mom took her to meet her teacher, and when I asked her about her teacher she said she LOVED her. Em had a great day, but she wants to go back to kindergarden in the afternoon because she could sleep in and only have to go to school half, or she wants to be in second grade for some reason she thinks they only go half a day also (I had to break the news that she will never be in half day school again). Here are just a few pictures of Emily this morning.
If anyone knows Emily she has to pose in about every picture she is in.
Here is a picture of Em and I. Note to self: never let Bert take a picture he'll cut your head off.

This is a picture of me after doing bus duty in the pouring rain.

How in the world did you get stuck with bus duty the first day of schoo? Just lucky! Em really is getting big! I am glad that she had a good first day of school.

How cute is she? I just love how she poses. What exactly is "bus duty?" we don't have that here.

It has been hard on me also that little Emily is now in the first grade. She was our first baby and she has grown up WAY too fast. This is going to be a fun year and you will not believe the things she will learn. Love the pics of cute Emily and I am loving the pic of you after bus duty! Ha-Ha!!!

I can't believe she is so big...does she like her teacher? Also how did you get stuck with bus duty, that stinks! You look lovely though:) Hope you had a good first day!
