Back To School Night

We got to learn about LT's 2nd/3rd grade class at back to school night while LT & DT, too!, got to enjoy a kids night out at the Ycare.

Looking around the classroom, there were some adorable self portraits above the board. This was, of course, my favorite!

(Sorry about picture quality, just had my phone and it was hanging high up!)

Odds & Ends

Just a few tidbits from the last couple weeks...

Tomatoes Gone Wild
We only planted 2 cherry tomato plants, for the record. We got a bonus and they just went gangbusters while we were on vacation. It hasn't been hot enough for most of the fruits to ripen.

School has only been in session 2 weeks, but that was still enough for some fun work to come home. Check out number 4 at the bottom of this one. An honest guy!

Here you can learn about LT's favorites.

We got a new toy. It's like iPad for those on a budget. (Aka, Nook color reconfigured as an Android tablet.) Now we can play Angry Birds and watch Power Rnagers on the big(er) screen. DT calls it the "big phone."

We've also been gearing up for a big project. Here is a little hint.

Second Grade!

Somehow summer has come and went and LT is back to school! He is in 2nd grade this year. He is in a 2/3 combo class with lots of his friends, so it is very exciting. The first day was tough going in as he was the last kid to come in (3rd grade starts at 8:15 and 2nd starts at 8:25 and we didn't realize his class was starting at 8:15 because of the combo). The second day he didn't even look back or wave goodbye when the line went in! I think he enjoyed the first 2 days.

Here's the annual picture!
