The first day. A day filled with anticipation, excitement, anxiety and fear. A day filled with longing for just one more day of vacation, one more day to play outside and stay up late. This first day will always stand out from the rest. This first day is different, because Emma is now a 1st grader and will be at school the whole day. This first day is different, because Maddie started high school and is growing up so quickly. This first day is different, because I have my days to myself and finally the time to fulfill old dreams and make new ones.
