I've passed my fear of spiders on to my kids, Emmy more so than Andrew. Today Emmy was in her room and she locked the door. She started screaming and crying. Andrew and I told her she needed to unlock the door, but she was too scared to walk past the spider. Finally she was gonna let Andrew in. He came into the living room to get a shoe to smoosh it. As he was running back to Emmy's room he started singing in own hero theme song. I couldn't help but laugh. Emmy let him in and he killed the bug and I heard Emmy sing "Hero of the day! Saved my life, saved my life". It was so hilarious! I love that they get to have all these little adventures. I'm also glad that Andrew took care of it so that I wouldn't have to.

Emmy's First Day of School

Here's Emmy almost ready for school. Nana made this dress.

Here's Derek walking Emmy into the schoolyard.

She's still excited for school at this point.

They lined up before going into class.

She started to get anxious when she realized that we would leave her there, so Derek talked to her to ease her fears.

She sat at a table with a little boy named Fernando and two girls named Jasmine and Chayanne.

She was happy when we came to pick her up. She said she had a nice time in class and that they played "Who stole the cookie from the cookie jar?"

Andy was happy to see Daddy after school, too.
