Will Turns Eight!

As is our tradition, he decorated the cake himself. It's not his fault that it was falling apart though... or that there wasn't enough frosting. The baker (me) had a few measuring mistakes, I think. :)

This boy never looks at the camera! LOL!

Listening to "Happy Birthday" and deciding what to wish for.

Take a DEEP breath...

and blow 'em out!

He saved all his birthday money, sold his wooden trains to Jeff & I (so now we have "control" over them and can keep them for as long as we want), and took what money was in his piggy bank and we went shopping for an electric train set. After about an hour of deliberating on which set to get, he decided on the Lionel Penn Flyer, complete with whistle and smoking funnel. He proudly pulled out that $250 in cash and plopped it on the cashier's counter. His first big purchase. :)post signature

First Day of Preschool

We have decided to send Nathan and Witt to preschool two days a week. They are there for 4 hours each day. Will attended the same preschool when he was 3 and 4 years old. Nathan went when he was 2 and then missed a year when he was 3 because we had moved away. Now that we're back, Nathan is in the 4-year-old class with a group of 8 boys and Witt is in the 3-year-old class with a mixture of boys and girls.

The first week of school, we drop them off in their classroom. Here we are in the parking lot taking those necessary first day of school pictures with their backpacks:

Nathan still loves John Deere and Witt really likes Diego. Such cuties! :)

There wasn't a single teary goodbye. Both boys were fine to say bye to mom and both were preoccupied with other things while they waved! LOL! :)
