Last Tuesday was our first day of school. I think we were the last county in our region to start back, and I can honestly say that I like that summer break doesn't end until after Labor Day. I hear there is talk of it possibly changing in the years to come, which is really unfortunate for the children.
Here are a few photo's I was able to grab before Emma headed off on her first day of Kindergarten. Since she is baby #4, and the last to start school, Momma was a hot mess that day! It didn't really hit me until I found myself looking out the door every minute watching for the bus to come up the hill. Once it dawned on me what I was doing, the tears started rolling. If I had the patience to home school, I would probably be tempted to keep her home.
Saturday marked the start of our fall soccer season, and Emma's first "official" soccer game. I think she will be following in her brother's footsteps. She seems to have more of an interest in soccer than cheerleading, which seems odd considering how she is such a girly-girl. Mommy and Daddy don't mind though. We encourage our children to participate in team sports, but prefer to let them decide which sport they enjoy more.
