Mommy Monday-Back to School

Emily had her first day of school today at Shining Star Preschool.  She is a Trusting Turtle this year in Miss Debbie and Miss Meredith's class.  When I walked into her room this morning she said, "Mom I'm not old enough for the 4's class, I'm 3."  I told her it was for 3 and 4 year olds and she was happy with that response.  She then ran to her closet to show me what she wanted to wear.  While I was out of town this weekend Voa Voa took her shopping.  They found the perfect outfit for the first day of class with a turtle on it!
Emily was so excited for school to be back in session and she was bursting with excitement this morning.  She wanted to go say hi to her previous teachers and was thrilled to see them after the long summer.  We then walked to her new class which she quickly recognized as "her summer school class (she went two days)."  She recognized her friend Carson from last year right away and ran up to him to give him a hug.  She then gave her teachers a hug and gave them a little treat.  She jumped right into playing and we were off.  We are so proud of how social and confident she is.
When I picked her up this afternoon she wanted to show me a few things she did today and then she wanted to say bye to her current and past teachers.  
She asked for YoDiggity and since today was a special day we grabbed it on our way home.
The time is flying and our little girl is getting so big.  We are so proud of her and excited to see what this year brings.  Soon is Kindergarten and within a blink will be high school graduation.
