First Day of Preschool

Evan had his first official day of preschool today. It was hard to drop him off, but he was fine! (Always harder on the mom!) He just seems so grown up!

Today, the kids made a picture with their name in a star in the middle, and each of the other kid's name from the class in a star to the sides. The teacher said that Evan wanted to know who each child was before he would glue their star on. She said it's the first time she's had a child in her class do that. I don't know what that says about Evan, other than he's very inquisitive :)

Big Boy Room!!

On Sunday, Evan finally moved into his big boy room. He has been doing great and really enjoys his new space! (It still needs a few finishing touches - but it's close to being done.)

Thanks so much to Grandma R for the great rockets and spaceships!!!

Last weekend, we took Evan downtown for the Labor Day Fireworks. We didn't want to have him down there all day, so we left around 8:00 and got down there and found a place to sit, just before the fireworks started at 9:00. Evan was a little bit nervous about them and we weren't sure how it was going to go once they started. Once they started, his face was priceless! It was a mixture of "I am so scared right now" and "That is the coolest thing I've ever seen!". The picture above does a pretty good job capturing it.

All the way back to the car, I was carrying him on my shoulders, and he kept saying "That was a lot of fun!".

Here are a few more pictures:

Summer 2008

We've had an AWESOME summer - we spent lots of time with our friends, hanging out at the zoo, Kings Island, the Beach, playgroups, and at the park. It seemed like every day we had something to do. One of Evan's favorite things was the Kings Island waterpark. Hope you enjoy some pictures from our last visit for the summer:
