First Day of School 2010

Today was Emerson's first day back at school. She is attending the same school as last year but will be going 3 days a week. When I registered her for 3 classes in the spring I was thinking that it would be super helpful to have 3 mornings a week with just Ashton at home in addition to Emerson getting much needed special attention. Now that his birth is just days away, I am pretty nervous as to how the heck I am going to get out the door by 8:45 am 3 days a week with Emerson AND a newborn! Oh well, too late now:)

Even though she has a new teacher and new class, she was still really excited about going back. Unlike last year, there were no tears at drop off this morning. She just went straight to playing and barely gave me a goodbye. It is bittersweet to see her growing up so much.

When I picked her up this afternoon, she had a lot to say about what they did at school today. She seems to really like her new teacher and has already learned most of her classmates names. She was REALLY fussy when we got home though- I think it is just a readjustment to how stimulating school is as opposed to being with boring mommy all day:)

Here are the only decent pictures I got of her this morning. Barely enough to say that the first day was documented!

Back-to-school was fun for me too. It was great seeing other friends and mommies at drop-off and pick-up and catching up on what everyone did over the summer. While this fall is certain to be crazy with a newborn I do love the routine of school and all that comes with it.
