I really can't believe I am a mom to a first grader! I remember my first grade so well: the smell of the markers, thinking I had to like "hot pink" as my favorite color to fit in with the other girls, the little boy named Tommy who sat next to me and peed his pants all the time, already trying to get boys to like me (oh man, I am NOT ready for that!).
Alas, this is not MY first grade experience I'm sure you all want to hear, but rather Emma's. In her words "Today was the best first day ever!" She really liked everything about today except for one thing. She accidentally chose strawberry milk to drink with lunch (thinking it was juice). I guess if that is the worst thing to happen, that would make today the best first day ever. :)
If you have a moment, please look at last year's post as she went off to kindergarten. So small, so scared. It was not like that at ALL today.
I am so proud of my big girl. Way to go, Emma!
My big girl. Thankfully it stopped raining just long enough for me to take a couple of pictures.
All set for first grade!
