She did it! She went to school today - and it was a long day for her, I think. But she liked it - the first thing she told me was, "We had lots of recesses!" Oh good. :) But when I asked her what her favorite part of the day was, she said, "Lunch." "Why?" I asked. "Because I saw Jonas." How cute is that?
We know one other girl in her class, Ava. She had to tell me one girl's name and one boy's name from her class - the names: Aiyana (no idea on spelling; but Jonas has an Aiyana in his class, too) and Oscar. Awesome, she passed my first homework assignment.
I think it will be a big adjustment - especially since it is full day (she did tell me afterwards that it was "too long"). But I think she'll be okay with it and love it and all that good stuff. She was starving when we got her - she finished the other half of her apple from lunch, ate a 1/2 banana, animal crackers, cherry tomatoes from our garden, some bites of smoked salmon (I had gotten from my brother and fiance quite a while ago - and Ben and I finally got around to eating most of it for lunch - yummy), and a handful of peanuts! I think she's exhausted - and she had to go to her gymnastics class at 3:30! I think she'll sleep great tonite. :)
Here are some pictures of our very, very adorable kindergartner:
Here's to a great first-year for Emmy!
