Christmas Time 2012

December 10th, 2012 by jim Posted in Christmas, Elsa, Family, Holiday, Lukas | 1 Comment »

It’s been a busy Fall since the kids went to school. I don’t know wherethe time has gone – it seems like just a short time ago we were putting Lukas on the bus for kindergarten for the first time, and getting Elsa ready for her first day of preschool. Now we’re almost halfway through the school year. How does this happen?!?

We’re trying to catch up a little, and trying to organize and tag a bunch of photos. In the meantime, here are some from the 2012 Christmas season so far.

Elsa goes to Preschool

September 11th, 2012 by jim Posted in Elsa, School, Summer | 1 Comment »

Not to be outdone by her big brother, Elsa started school today! It was her first day at Wee Three Kings Preschool. She’ll only be going once a week this year, but she was so excited about it, and it sounds like she had an awesome first day. I’m sure all we’ll hear about for the next 6 days is “Do I go to preschool today?” :) It’s hard to believe both our little ones are in school, this time goes by way too fast!

Anyway, here are a few pictures from her first day. Pay special attention to what she wants to be when she grows up. I’m not sure if you can go to college for this, we’ll have to look into it. This may be influenced by the fact that we’ve recently shown the Star Wars saga (minus Episode 1) to Lukas, and of course Elsa was also interested… And we couldn’t really get any photos in the classroom, because she took off into the room and barely even looked back, and was immediately showing her little family picture book to both teachers.

A Little Painting

September 10th, 2012 by jim Posted in Lukas, Summer | 1 Comment »

We are (finally) painting our guest room – it’s been over two years since we moved in, figured it was about time… Lukas wanted to help, so I set him up with a roller and a bruch and put him to work. He did a pretty good job for his first time. He was very excited about this, and even more exciting was that he was able to sing a “Pete the Cat” song while he was painting – “I’m painting/In my old clothes!”

Ready to go, where's my brush?

Lukas Goes to Kindergarten!

Lukas started Kindergarten a few weeks ago, and rode the bus for the first time today. More photos of his first day of school (and some from over the Summer too…), but here are a few from the first day, and the first bus ride. He was REALLY excited to ride the bus!
