First day of the new school year:

I remember hearing it all the time before I became a mother, and didn’t understand it until I was one. “I blinked.” It’s so true. It feels like just yesterday that I was counting my little babies’ toes and promising them the world. Now they’re starting a new school year and off on new adventures. I blinked. I blinked and another year passed by. The first day of a new school year is always exciting, but I usually end up having mixed emotions about it. I’m happy that my girls will get to learn new things, make new friends, and prove that they can do hard things, but I’m also a little sad about the reminder that they’re one year older and closer to growing up. Here are some of the pictures that I grabbed before we sent them off to school!Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year Emily Johnson New School Year
