TODAY was her special day!  First day of preschool is a pretty big deal around here.  Emerson was so excited last night.  She had her outfit carefully selected and wanted to to make sure we would wake her extra early for her BIG (2 hours and 15 minutes) school day!!

These moments are so precious.

Yes, I even snapped a picture of her dirty little sneaks.  Maybe she’ll appreciate this in 20 years!  I know I will!

We are immensely fortunate to have loving and amazing teachers for our kiddos.  I absolutely believe that teachers are true heroes in our world.  I am so thankful that my children have the opportunity to learn in such beautiful environments.  Perhaps the real heroes are HIGHSCHOOL teachers!  I can’t even imagine.  I once substituted in a highschool physics class and it was an experience to remember.  Lets just say my teaching tricks didn’t work so well with 17 year olds!

I got Mason’s back to school shots today too!!  Who said we have to get “the shot” on the FIRST DAY!?  My goal is to get a back-to -school within the first month of school.  :)  He is LOVING first grade.

Of coures this little fella didn’t want to be left out of the picture action!  If big brother or big sister are up to something he has got to give it a try too.  I can’t believe he is going to be a “BIG BROTHER” so soon!!!

I hope your back-to-school days are going GREAT!
