To be honest with you preschool was never something I thought I would have my kids do. Don't get me wrong I think preschool is great, but for me I just want my kids to be at home with me for as long as they can. They have a lifetime of school ahead of them and I never want to look back and regret not taking advantage of the time I have with them. With that being said, I realized last year with Marek that doing one year of preschool before he goes off to Kindergarten would be great for him! The fun part has been seeing how absolutely excited he has been to start! We had his open house on Monday and he was beaming from ear to ear the whole time! I thought I would be more emotional about dropping him off yesterday for his first day, but it was such a joy to see how happy and ready he was to go! Life is moving by way to quickly!!!

My brother and his family came up from Boise to visit and meet the baby Micah for Labor day weekend, and while they were here my sister-in-law Stacie (who has a little photography biz on the side) did a little photo session with us! Besides the fact that Micah wasn't the happiest of campers (in his defense it was time for him to eat) it went really well and the pictures turned out great! I can' wait to order the pics and get them up on the wall! Thanks Stacie!!!

I would love to say that we had a great time at the fair, but that would just not be true. Going against Brandon's suggestion to bring the double stroller before we left was a HUGE mistake. About a half an hour in the whining started! Marek and McKenna both wanted to be held the whole time. There were some fun moments like feeding the animals at the petting zoo, riding the carrousel, and going on a train tour though. What can you do? That's life right! Maybe next year will be better! :)

It's amazing how fast a month can go by! Our chubby cheeked little Micah is having more wakeful time everyday and is constantly looking all around with his big blue grey eyes. It really is sad how fast it goes. He's just about to outgrow his newborn cloths and move up to the next size. :( Things are going pretty good around here though. With our fall schedule in place and a regular routine things seem really manageable. Big brother and sister still adore their little brother and tend to smother him with kisses (seriously we constantly have to tell them to give him some room). Other then struggling with a 5 or so day bought of gassiness at night Micah's is still an easy going precious little guy! I don't want time to go by to fast, but I am looking forward to getting a full night sleep sometime soon and I can't wait to see his little personality start coming though! :)
