Emma's first day of Kindergarten

What a hard day today was. Today was Emma's first day of Kindergarten. I was quite emotional when I woke up this morning, but had promised Emma that I wouldn't cry. So I had to pull myself together. Guess she didn't want me to embarrass her at the bus stop?! I just seems like yesterday that she was being placed in my arms for the very first time, and now I am sending her to school. I don't know where the time goes, but I know she has so much in store for her and that she will be a blessing to her Kindergarten teacher and everyone else she comes in contact with. She blesses me daily with her optimism, graciousness, and unconditional love. What a wonderful, perfect gift I have been given. Thank you God. Hanna missed her sister while she was at school, but I am looking forward to some one on one time with Hanna. Since she was the second born we haven't had "alone" time. I will cherish every moment. I know in the blink of an eye she too will be going off to school. Then what....I guess I need to get dog or take up knitting. I love you Emma Kate and wish you a wonderful year in Kindergarten and make lots of new friends. Momma loves you so much!

Seems not that long ago this was my first born going off in to the big world. What memories. She looks like she is ready for anything. I'm sure it was hardest on Momma-, I'm very proud of you both. Love you!
