It didn't really hit me until we were sitting in the auditorium at Julian Newman Elementary school, at Em's 4th grade awards ceremony, that this was it.....she's officially out of Elementary school and on to 5th grade at the Intermediate school! She's so excited.....lockers, changing classes, being at a school that doesn't have kindergartners down the hall....you know, Big School! It does hurt my heart a little to see how grown up she's become but, at the same time, I'm so excited for her as she moves in to this next chapter of life! Congratulations Emma! 5th grade, here you come!
