With the chaos of the kitchen project and a last-minute vacation, the school year really sneaked up on us this year. Emily wasn't even thinking about school until we went to the open house the day before to see her room and bring all her supplies. After that, though, it was pure excitement. She wanted to go to bed at 6:00pm so the morning would come sooner. :o) I did, however, put her to work sharpening all the required pencils.
Emily has Mrs. (Crystal) Betts for a teacher this year. She had a great first day. Her quote was something like, "I have a problem. I like first grade so much I didn't want to leave!"
