A Day of Firsts

Yesterday was Emmett's first day of preschool and his first day of soccer.
Boy was he ready for bedtime last night! He loves his teacher and is excited about school. He is also excited to wear the new gear he gets for soccer , he seems to be excited to play too. :-)

(Jessie had to wear her backpack too.)

Gracie started FIRST grade today! This is a pretty big deal for all of us because she is gone all day, every day. It was definitely a little quieter around here (Emmett doesn't start preschool until next week!). Gracie insisted are wearing her new clothes that Grammy bought her - even though it was 97 this afternoon and there is no A/C in the school - she said tomorrow she will wear short sleeves! We didn't cry saying good-bye - she ran off and I was forgotten pretty quickly. No biggy - I am happy for her, but I did get a little nostalgic this morning because after she woke up she put her "kitty" on Jessie's bed and said she didn't need it anymore and Jessie could have it (she has had this kitty since she was born and it was her favorite thumb-sucking cuddly). They do grow up faster than you want sometimes! :-)

Ready to go!
Checking out her desk.
The first day is done and she's still smiling!

Today Jason and I celebrate 10 years of marriage! Wow! It's hard to think that the next 10 years could have more changes the first dog, five moves/houses, and three kids!

It's amazing to think that I am closer to Jason than the day we were married. He is completely my best friend and I want to be with him more than anything in the whole world. I love you, Babe! :-)
