1st day of 1st Grade

Summer is officially over for Emma. 1st grade started today. We met her teacher on Tuesday and she seems really nice. Emma has a couple friends from last year in her class this year, so that'll be good. Just as she ended last year, she will participate with a general ed 1st grade homeroom and go to lunch, recess, and specials with them. Then all of her academics she will have in a small group classroom. This year I believe there are 6 students in the small group class - 3 1st graders and 3 kindergartners. And she will have the same teacher in the small group class as she had last year - for which we are very thankful. :-)

Here are some pictures from this morning. It's a very early morning for all of us in that her bus picks her up at 6:37! And this morning they were at our driveway at 6:30!!! Hopefully it will slide a little later as they get in to a routine. So, these aren't the greatest pictures, but it's the first day of 1st grade! :-)
Breakfast...Walking out the door.On the bus.
I had hoped to get some pictures this afternoon when she got home, but she was asleep on the bus, so I had to carry her in to the house and then I didn't think about it again.

We are excited about this year of school and are praying that she has a year of tremendous growth and development.
