1st Day of Preschool and a sneak peek

I am having a hard time believing that my little girl started preschool. Emma had her 1st day of school yesterday and she loved every minute of it. Once the doors opened she was in her classroom and checking it all out. I am so glad her 1st day was a success. Next week she will take the bus home. I am not so ready for that, but I think she needs to do it. On to the pictures.

Here is Emma walking into school with her Daddy. She knows this building very well and it shows. She acts like she owns the joint.

Emma is checking out her locker. She is a little to short to reach the handle. Poor thing. But she doesn't seem to mind.

Emma and Daddy. She is jumping out of his arms because she wants to get down and explore.

Emma and Mommy waiting for the doors to open. She is so excited to start her first day.

Of course, we had to get a family shot. Don't mind the expressions on all of our faces. There was a lot going on and one little girl that wanted to be on the move.

This has got to be the sweetest thing I have ever witnessed. This is Emma's friend, Danzel. He loves her. He also has Down syndrome and they have been is school together for a year now. He was so excited to see her and this was how he was walking to her. He wanted to give her a hug. She wasn't so sure about that. But she did give him the biggest smile ever. I think they will be great friends if they continue to go to school together.

He finally got his hug. He is the sweetest little boy and so mellow. Total opposite of Emma ( the mellow part that is).

Emma is in heaven at school. I hope this enthusiasm continues for her. Doesn't she look happy?
Evan wanted to stay at school. I think he would have been sad though.

Here is a sneak peek at what our new kitchen/family room will look like. What do you think?

Sorry for all the pictures. Just wanted to share her first day!! Next week I will share her bus adventure.


  1. The pictures of Emma are darling. She is such a big girl now.

    Love the kitchen stuff - I will be green with envy I'm sure, What are the fabrics for?

  2. The toile is for curtains and the goldy/tan piece is leather and it will be for an ottoman.

  3. Oh my gosh, I can't believe she is in pre-k, what great pictures! She looks like she loves school, I'm so glad! I love the pictures of her with her friend Danzel! Tell Jim to watch out, Emma might have a boyfriend soon! I bet Evan was sad Emma was gone.

    Cute cute kitchen stuff, can't wait to see pictures!

  4. I haven't checked your site in a while - I've missed so much!! :) I can't believe she is in prek - and I don't think I've ever seen a happier kid at school. It will be so good for her!
