Emmy's First Day of School!

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:
 Aw, she's so cute.  I love her thumbs-up that she always does.  :)

 Here she is sticking out her tongue through the toothless gap in her mouth.  :)

Mrs. (Ms.?) Arrecheya (Truthfully, I don't know how to say her name or spell it) and Emmy.

Here's to a great first-year for Emmy!
