I know, not exactly the happy pictures you might have been expecting. Today was Emma's last day of Kindergarten and to say that she is going to miss her Kindergarten teacher is an understatement. As we got out of the van tonight Emma began to sob. I thought she had hurt herself, that is how badly she was crying. I went over to her, picked her up, and asked what was wrong. This is the point where my heart broke. Emma told me she was sad because she wasn't going to see Mrs. B again. Apparently it had just hit her that she was now a first grader and that she would no longer be in her Kindergarten class. I haven't read in any parenting book quite how to deal with a sad six year old who misses her Kindergarten teacher. She did eventually calm down when I asked her to show me all the cool stuff she brought home in her summer fun bag. Diversion, that is was worked for me this time. Maybe next time will require ice cream?! Thank you Mrs. B for making such an impact on this precious six year old. You are a wonderful teacher! We will miss you.

Just thought this was a cute picture of the girls. It was taken at Emma's carnival at school this past Friday night. They had a wonderful time and I will post more pictures of the evening festivities later.

This past Sunday we were invited by Poppy to go with him to a Red Sox Vs. Orioles game. Boy am I glad he did. I had so much fun. It certainly did not help my infatuation with Jacoby Ellsbury. Poor Will had to listen to me all day. All I have to say is that I want to sit in left field next time so when Jacoby stretches....well, you get where this is going right?! Anyways, Red Sox beat the Orioles 9-4 and we had a great time. I love that I finally have something Will and I can enjoy together. I tried to get into golf, but I couldn't. Baseball is a great sport and I am enjoying being able to learn the game. Here are a few pictures of our day. Oh yeah, Manny hit his 500th homerun on Saturday night! Awesome. We were hoping to see it on Sunday, but he beat us by a day. We did get to see 501! Thanks Poppy for taking us to the game.
