Today was the 1st day of school.
Ethan started the 3rd grade & Emily started Kindergarten. When did this happen? When did my babies grow up?

There were tears shed. Not by Emily, though. I'll admit it. I cried. Sure I held it together while I was dropping her off, but after I got back to the car...
Then I went home, went into her room & cried. I went to work & every time I thought about them both, I got a little teary eyed. I no longer have a baby. I know this is a great new season for them, and I am happy they came home all excited about school. I know Emily will love kindergarten & I'm real excited because Ethan will get some extra help this year due to his ACC. I think this will make a big difference in school for him, but I can't help being a little reminiscent.
Ethan & Emily, it has been a complete honor to be your mother for the last 8 & 5 years. Good luck this school year. Both of you will do awesome. I love you!
