This is my second blog written to capture memories made with our grandchildren. The link to my first blog, "Meet Our Grandchildren," is listed below in the right hand column. Hope you have time to read some of it. Our journey to becoming grandparents has been full of adventure and much love.

Emily's Kindergarten Moving - Up Day

Hard to believe our Emily is moving up to first grade already. I remember the days leading up to her first day of school. We were all nervous that she would feel out of her own element and not mix well with her classmates. We couldn't have been more wrong. Em got off the school bus and had so much to tell her Mom and Dad about her day, her teacher and her new friends.

Emily is our third grandchild to "move up." Her ceremony and watching her walk across the stage was just as exciting as that of our oldest grandchild.

This poem was printed on the back of the program:

Great Expectations

It's time to say good-bye.
Our year has come to an end.
We've made more cherished memories
And many more new friends.
We've watched your children learn and grow
And change from day to day.
We hope that all the things we've done
Have helped in some small way.
So its with happy memories
We send them out the door
With great expectations
For what next year holds in store.

You see, the teachers, the students and their families; everyone who has been a part of Emily's school year have made new memories of Emily. Just think of all the memories Emily has of her first year in school.

Congratulations, Miss Em:~)
Hugs and kisses,
