After having a super-fun time last night (and getting to bed an hour and a half past her bedtime), Emmylou had another big day today: her first day of school!

Okay, okay, so it's not really "school," but rather Children's Morning Out, which kind of cracks me up because when I was little it was called Mother's Day Out-- but I guess we can't let kids think for a second that their mothers would ever need any time away from them. Truth be told, I did actually miss her the three hours she was gone today. But I got so much done!

When we picked her up, the teacher told us she did really well, that she asked for "Mama" every 30 minutes or so (awww...) but was easily redirected back to playing. Here's a picture of her before I took her this morning, and I can't believe I did this because my mom took a picture of me every first day of school and I hated it so much that for probably the last 8 years I'm rolling my eyes in every one. So here's to having a daughter who's unable to roll her eyes on demand yet.

Emmylou is getting to be such a big girl now. The backpack is adorable. Just wait until her first day of BIG school, you will cry like a baby and she will look at you like you are crazy :~)
