Little Chef

Ian's new favorite hobby !! He's such a great helper

Pictures before leaving for school

It was raining so hard on Ian's first day of school, all the pictures had to be taken inside. He is showing off his super cool baseball lunch box and his elmo raincoat.
Can't wait until Thursday--Day 2

First Day of School

Today was fantastic... our little guy is growing up so fast! The first day of school went great and he told me today that he wants to go back in the morning. That's a good sign.
He painted a picture, played with a parachute and even went pee pee in the potty!!
Pictures to come soon!!

First visit to Ian's new preschool

Ian had a blast with Papa visiting this week even though Mommy was kinda grouchy. He has had a blast over the past weeks with Nano and Laura here last week and then Papa this week.
We had orientation for preschool yesterday and there were a couple of tears when I first left but they were quickly gone when he discovered the play ground and fish tank. He was having a blast when we picked him up an hour later. His teacher, Miss Angie, seems to be great with the kids and Ian can already say "Ms Anthee"! Tuesday will be his first full day. I think he's going to love it!!

The Sandbox is finished

Marco added the last bag of sand (still don't know who won the bet but we are at over 30 bags today) and Ian loves his new sandbox. Marco really did a great job and it can easily fit 5 kids. He has buried dinosaurs and his cousins, Mia and Eli, already! His favorite activity is throwing sand out of the box... still working on this one.

Splishin' and Splashin' at the Lanier Water Park

Ian and his friend Brandon had a blast at the water park today!!

The boys couldn't get enough of the water. We spent the entire afternoon beating the heat at the water park. It was so much fun and they went until they were about to drop!!

Between the wave pool and the kiddy fountains and the water slides Ian must have dunked his head over 1000 times. He is my little fish!

You have the right to remain silent...

Wow.. we have had a busy couple of days. We had such a fun on Tuesday at the Forsyth County police station where Ian attended the Stranger Danger class! The deputy taught us about good strangers and bad strangers and made a big impression on Ian. He was "cuffed and stuffed" -- the picture of Ian being handcuffed is priceless. His eyes were as big as saucers while the officer had him in the handcuffs. It had better be the only time he's handcuffed by the cops!!

I PeePee in the Potty

Words we didn't think we would hear for a long time but after a week with Nano and Papa it's for real. Ian thinks he is such a big boy now and LOVES his big boy undies.. well actually "commando" is his favorite but big boy underware is a definate upgrade from pull-ups. He is doing fabulous and has mastered the pee pee. Number 2 is a little more of a challenge but I'll take anything I can get! Nano still has it!!!
