Happy 7th Birthday Emma!

Seven years ago today, I gave birth to a 6lb 7oz beautiful little girl. I really can't believe that it has been 7 years.  Emma is still just as cute, if not cuter than she was then, and is still just as hard to handle.  She is the most stubborn and persistent child that I have even come in contact with, but I really hope that those personality traits will serve her well in life.  Sadly though, she is so much like me, that I can barely believe it.  So, here's to you baby girl!  I love you!

Here are some pictures from her party that we had on Friday night.  we had pasta for dinner and cupcake and ice cream for dessert.  Thanks for my sister Erin for all her help with the party.  She had a great time, and I really appreciate everyone who was able to come and celebrate with her.

I apologize for the quality of these photos.  Our house is terrible for taking pictures at night, and during present time, it was almost impossible to get a picture without someone walking into the shot.  Thanks to my hubby for taking these pics though, he really tried his best.

Schools Out for Summer!

Emma hit a milestone this week, that I wanted to share.  She finished the 1st Grade over the weekend!  She was super excited to be done with school for the year, and she worked really hard over the holiday weekend to get finished up.  Our last day is officially Friday the 4th, but once you have all the days and hours accounted for, and all the lessons complete, then you are done for the year. 

Here is a picture of her online school screen, showing that she completed all the subjects.

We also got Emma's CRCT scores from her teacher last week, and she "met" the state standard in Math and in Language Arts, and she "exceeded" the state standard in Reading.  We were really proud of her!  Her attention issues make concentration hard for her at times, and she has some anxiety issues as well, so for her to be able to concentrate on the questions and push her anxiety aside to complete the tests and do well, was an accomplishment!
