The other day

family from Idaho came over to visit. Vy was quick to start claiming his attention from whomever would give it to him. We all laughed when he said to Abby "I can rip the net in half with my teeth." Seriously where in the world does he come up with these things?

Then there was this little guy, Lolo. What did he do? He hid behind this curtain and wouldn't come out. I went up to him and told him I'd walk with him. But no, he just wanted to watch from afar. We'd catch him looking at us and quickly would hide. Eventually he fell asleep on the hard wood floors and Chris took him to bed.

Out of my siblings I was the only one that didn't attend preschool. I'm suspecting I probably refused to go. In fact I remember my first day of kindergarden. I was sooooo terrified. Eventually I realized I had no choice feeling pressure from my mom. I hesitantly went in everyday for a while.

Toki and Vy were so excited to start school and adjusted quickly. We've been prepping this little guy now for months and he is not happy about it. He just flat out doesnt' want to go. He met his teacher today. He was hiding behind the couch, smiling all the while. Eventually he came out to look at her sea shell collection. He wouldn't touch any of them unlike his brothers did. I'm suspecting he's going to cry, freak out, and beg me to stay with him on his first day of school and perhaps for a while thereafter.


  1. ah...cute pictures babe. Love the zoo pic. Makes me want to go again.

  2. Kids are so different. Et was so undaunted by school. He had his days when he didn't want to go and struggled, but they were rare. Sis, on the other hand, did not want anything to do with school. Thank goodness she had a great preschool teacher who could see what she needed and provide her with a safe and happy environment. Life would be pretty boring if we were all the same.
