From September 4, 2011

I'm excited for Emily because:
-she is top dog at her school this year and will enjoy all the perks of being a 6th grader
-she should continue to gain confidence academically
-she is growing into a really beautiful young woman
-Emily not only got the teacher that "she" wanted, but Mrs. Olsen just had a baby and I will be doing portraits for her. I promised Emily she could be my assistant during the session
-I know she is going to love the ancient civilization project this year

Things I worry about because I'm her mom:
-Emily is in between phases in life this year. She feels like she is in the middle of being a young lady and a child. I hope she will find some peace as she goes through this rough transition
-Emily has tried so hard to find a good friend. I am hoping with all my heart that this is her year
-I wish that Emily would find a sport that she loves, we are going to try volleyball this year
-I want to see her continue to become more responsible
-Emily especially needs people in her life to support her this year to boost her self confidence and self worth

I can't believe you are going to be in the 6th grade! Your growing up too fast!
There is nothing wrong with being young at heart. I remember one year for my birthday I really wanted this barbie. My friend got it for me, but when I opened it in front of my other friends I was embarrassed because I knew not everyone liked to play barbies still. So if you have some friends that want to play barbies or pretend, play that with them if others don't, then play other games with them. You can have the best of both worlds!
