Preschool + Soccer

Our Itty-Bitty is in Preschool! He is in the Ladybug class that goes Tuesdays and Thursdays. So far he loves it and is really proud of the fact that he is in preschool and is a "big boy" now! I asked him "before school" questions this year for the first time and his answers were so cute! His favorite color is blue, he wants to be a football player when he grows up (I think that is heavily influenced by his brother), and his favorite things are playing with his brother and his friends. His color/shape is the Brown Pentagon... So cute!

He played soccer again this fall ... and he finally gets it! He loves running after the ball and kicking it.  And he's willing to staying in the game the entire time. In his last game he scored three goals! Go Red Crush!

First Grade + Football

I can't believe Landon is in FIRST grade. It's been a little bit of an adjustment to all-day school, he's a trooper and has done just fine. He chose to be an "early bird" at school - meaning he goes from 7:55-2:15. I had serious doubts about it, but he has handled it like a champ - he gets up without complaining and is always on time. The early schedule allows Jeff to take him a good portion of the time, too, which is fun for both of them. I love asking the boys questions before the year starts to hear their answers. Landon said he wants to be a football player when he grows up, his favorite color is red (no surprise there), and that his favorite things are playing outside, his friends and playing Madden (football video game).

This fall Landon also started playing football! We said we'd NEVER let our kids play ... but Landon begged and begged, so we finally relented. And it's been a really good experience for him. It's hard work, and they demand a lot from the boys, but he's loved every single second of it so far. Go Skyridge Falcons!
