First Grade, Preschool, and Joshy!

Allison started First grade and she is loving every minute! I can't believe how fast the years are going.Here she is in front of her classroom. She is in the main hall this year and thinks that is pretty cool.
Here is the studious worker! I think she is more social than studious, but she is doing great so far. On Fridays I eat lunch with Mrs. Langdale, Alli's teacher, and she has already shared some funny stories. Like, Allison asking her to microwave her leftover pasta for her. Or if Mrs. Langdale could organize her desk for her while she is at recess. Who gets this kind of treatment? Where does she think she is? Club Med or something? Mrs Langdale is great and handles her well, and says she is always so happy and fun to be around! I agree.

Here is Zachy boy on his first day of Preschool. This is his second year at the preschool and he is very excited to be in the monkey class with Mrs. Jennifer. I had to work that day, so this is the only picture we got of this sweet boy!

And here is my Joshy boy! What else can I say but we have tons of fun while Allison and Zachary are at school. We color on our faces, we squeeze out toothpaste from the tubes, we lock mommy out of the house, we take every shoe out of the closet, we eat chalk, and the list goes on and on. This kid does stuff that my other two never did. I think Zachary says it best when he calls Josh "The crazy-rat boy!"

FIRST lost tooth & FIRST day of FIRST grade!

It was a close call, but Alli lost her first tooth before the first day of school! (within a couple weeks I should say) She was so sad in Kindergarten when all the other kids were losing teeth and she wasn't. But now she gets to start first grade with a cute hole in her mouth. She is so proud! How the tooth came out...Ryan put on his head gear, tied dental floss around the tooth, gave it a pull, and out it came! Personally, I wasn't fond of this method, but Allison didn't think twice and she said it didn't hurt at all. This is a perfect dad job!
Here is the tooth hanging from the floss!

The proud smile! (Her teeth are a little yellow...maybe lighting from the camera, maybe not!)

First day of school pictures to follow!
