Ist grade

My baby girl entered 1st grade today. Though not as emotionally taxing as her entering kindergarten last year, it still made me a bit sentimental today to know that my Abby is now a 1st grader. I'm guessing the same emotions will erupt each year as we watch our children grow older.

Tomorrow morning, I have the privilege of partaking in an IEP meeting for the Absters. I never thought I would mention "IEP" when talking about Abby. But you see, the smart cookie has gone through 3 rounds of testing over the past few months and been approved for our school system's gifted program. I have to admit that I knew she was pretty bright, but I am amazed that she got into the program as a first grader. The really neat thing is that we get to meet with her enrichment teacher and develop an educational plan for her...goals to be set regarding her education and everything. I'm excited for the kiddo.

When I read IEP, you got me worried! WTG Abby, thats wonderful! Sweet pics, she looks so much older stepping out as a 1st grader. I cant wait to hear how she likes the new program.
