It's hard to believe, but summer is basically over for us. Each year they start school a little earlier. Today was Emily's first day of 1st grade, at our charter school here in Springville. She was SO excited! Emily loves most everything about school, including being with the other children, having lunch at school, and of course, math (her favorite subject). I have to admit that I've had just a little bit of sadness, realizing that my little girl is growing up and will be gone all day now. In fact, yesterday I realized that basically 1/3 of her life with us here at home is gone! But part of me is pretty excited about having almost 7 hours of productive time every day. Now I just need the motivation to do all the catch-up and projects for the home and office that I've been planning to get done!
Mom: So Emily, how was school today? Emily: GREAT!
I think this little girl likes school. :)
Someone else was happy she was home too!
Here's to a great year, Emily!
