Anyway, enough about lunch. Zach's teachers seemed really nice. His classroom is cute, and he easily found his name on his cubby, the attendance tree, the floor for circle time, etc. We met a couple of other kids in his class, too. Zach was really excited to get his new red schoolbag (they all use the same one that we purchase there), and he carried it around the whole time. Now he's excited to put his name on it and decorate it however he wants. Maybe we'll go to the fabric or craft store and look for some iron-on letters for his name and some other fun stuff. Zach seemed a little nervous or shy being there, but overall he was fine. He wasn't afraid to tell his teachers that it was nice to meet them and that he's excited to see them on Tuesday. We were also excited to see that 2 boys in his class live near us- one about a block up on our street, and the other lives 2 blocks over. That makes me think of my friends that I've been friends with since preschool, especially my friend Ange, who reminded me the other day that I was at her 3rd birthday party over 27 years ago. It's so weird to think that she and I have been friends since we were Zach's age.
Zach really needs his hair cut (I think that's happening tomorrow), so today we had a little fun and did a faux hawk in Zach's hair. Or, as Zach told the Scheel's checkout guy, "Mom put some faux hawk in my hair." He must think the product we put in his hair is called faux hawk. We had to go to Scheel's to get new Hawkeye shirts for Zach and me for Zach's first Hawkeye football game this weekend. Anyway, here's the faux hawk:
Also, here are just a couple of fun pictures of the boys swinging on our swing set the other day. It was Drew's first time in the swing. You can sort of see in the picture that he's still a little small for it. If he keeps his feet up he doesn't fall forward. We didn't really swing him much, but when we did swing him a little bit, he was all smiles and giggles. It'll be nice when Drew's a little bigger and can really sit in the swing and actually swing.
Drew reminds me a little bit of Humpty Dumpty in this picture. I'm not sure if it's the shape of him in the swing and the way the swing cups him, or his bald head, or what. I've always liked eggs, though...
I'll write more after the Hawkeye game this weekend. I'm sure that will be fun. Zach is so excited, he can hardly wait. We're sitting with our neighbors BJ and Susan, and Zach loves them, especially Susan, so I'm sure Mike and I will pretty much be ignored during the game so Zach can point out all the cool things to Susan. Either way, it'll be fun. Let's just hope for good weather and a good game. Go Hawks!
