First day of school pictures



As with tradition, I took beginning of the year pictures.


Alex is in 1st grade this year.  He was so sad last year when he didn’t loose a tooth, like most of his classmates.  This year he has 2 loose teeth!  The bottom two middle teeth are loose and the dentist predicted there would be at least one out by Halloween.  He still loves math, and although he doesn’t really know it yet, he’s doing “times” or multiplication.  It’s really crazy how easy math comes to him.  He can READ!  Last year his big thing was to learn how to read.  This year, he was reading something to me and read the word “remembering”.  That is one tough word to read!  He has a new love again - legos.  We even signed him up for an afterschool Lego group.  He still loves Superheros – Superman being the favorite.  His favorite color is purple this year – a complete change from either blue or red.  He explains it that red and blue make purple and more than just girls can like purple.  Alex has many friends, my extroverted boy.  I love watching him play with his friends.  He loves the 49ers, just like Dad.  In fact, every football game they watch, he asks his Dad which team he wants to win and Lance says it, then Alex says that is the team he wants to win too. 


Sara is in “big kid” Preschool this year.  My baby girl is in PRESCHOOL!  This year her classroom is working on saying “Yes” instead of “yeah”.  It’s so fun to hear her say “yes” very politely and carefully.  She’s been saying a lot of Yes’s lately!  She has the cutest lisp with her “S” sounds.  So, “Sara” sounds like “Thera”.  Sara is all about being a big kid.  If it’s “big kid” she wants to do it, unless of course, she doesn’t.  Then she doesn’t care about being a big kid.  Ahh – being a preschooler.  She can spell her name - s.a.r.a.  She is learning to count and recognize letters. Her favorite color is green – and often that is how decisions are made for her.  She is starting to really sing the preschool songs that she’s learning and I love hearing her sing.  She has lots of friends at school, but she has certain best friends who she loves most. She loves the Seahawks, just like mom.  Loves bubble baths and toe nail polish.  In fact, she loves painting each of her toenails a different color – rainbow toenails she calls them.  She has just started to learn how to draw stick people, I absolutely must get a picture and post it.  It’s amazing!  Her drawings have really taken a turn lately, she used to do a very simple coloring that was very “Sara”.  Now there are all sorts of shapes and different things she draws.  She has learned to ride her balance bike all by herself. 


This year is truly going to be amazing!
