Last day of Fourth grade for Miss Emily. I thought I would take you back in time to the first day of school for both girls - we'll start with Paige first. If you recall, she missed the actual first day of school because she had an allergic reaction from antibiotics. She was covered in spots. So, her first day was everyone else's second day.
And here she is today. I can hardly believe how much of her baby-ness is all gone. And behold, the pose. I am so proud of all that she has accomplished. She can tie her shoes all by herself, write full sentences with some awesomely great handwriting, READ well above her grade level, act (kindof) in a school play, make lots and lots of friends, and just grow up enough that it's slightly painful, but also enough that it's exciting too see the person that she's becoming. Introducing my new first grader!
Emily started off her school year with no rash or drama. And that's pretty much the way she ended it as well. Here's Emily in September:
And here's Emily this morning:
Paige had a Kindergarten Completion ceremony at school this morning. They sang a few songs.
(Paige is kinda behind the plant)
And they were all introduced by their respective teachers - telling us what they wanted to be when they grow up. Paige said she wants to be a veterinarian. Most of the girls said teacher, but a few said things like: donut maker and princess. It seemed like all the boys said police officer. My favorite boy occupation was a K-Mart worker. AWESOME!
Paige with Mr. Rose (the Principal) and Ms. Batko (asst. Principal). Mr. Rose was telling Eric how awesome he was that he could take a picture with a drink and donut in one hand, and a camera in the other. Apparently, not so awesome that he can look at the picture he just took and say. "Let's take another one with all our mouths closed..."
