Emma's first day of 2nd grade

It's true...don't blink, they grow fast!  Our summer seemed to fly by and I'm not sure any of us were quite ready for this.  We delivered this sweet girl to second grade on Monday {without front top teeth and without a hair bow, per her request!}  We pray she stays safe and healthy, does her very best, is a kind friend and shares the love of Jesus with everyone.  I will try not to think about the fact that she will be driving in eight years {thanks for the reminder, Big Daddy!} and will be a high school senior in less than ten years.

Her teacher is Mrs Reddick, a fellow coach's wife!  :)  I know she will be in good hands!  Since the car pickup line is absolutely crazy the first week I got in line an hour ahead of time.  I was able to watch her class during recess time.  She did a lot of swinging and walking around with two sweet classmates, Marisol and Alexis.  Of course later she informed her daddy that a bunch of the boys were chasing them!  She said that her favorite part of the day was catching up with her friends and her least favorite part was waiting so long for lunchtime.  Second grade has the very last lunch this year (beginning at 12:30!!)  

It was daddy's first day of school too :)  I had to get a photo of them in their matching Tiger orange!

Drop off gets a little easier {and the mama tears lessen} every year....especially because she loves school.  While it's bittersweet to let her grow up it's fun to watch her blossom and develop into such an incredible young lady!  Here's to a wonderful year :)
