Herolds' Hangout

Thoughts, Reminders, and Reasons to Brag...


Milky the Cow

Milky the Cow, the Kindergarten class mascot, got to spend the entire weekend with Skyler! We had a lot of fun events planned, so Milky had a busy three days with our family. He played Mario Kart on Wii, rode in a convertible, went to swim lessons, played skeeball, jumped on big trampolines, rested in the mouth of a giant crocodile, ate pizza, and lots more!

Skyler had to add to the class journal about what he did with Milky. I made a photo collage and sent it with him to school.

See all the photos (choose the album).

First Day of Kindergarten

First day of Kindergarten! Skyler was a little anxious, but his mom got to spend some time with him. She took some great photos of Skyler and his soon-to-be-friends. I am very proud of our son and look forward to many more "firsts"!

Apples to Apples

My great aunt and uncle from Tucson, visited my parents over the weekend and we all got together for a game of Apples to Apples. We had a lot of fun and conversations during the game! I need to buy this game myself. It's a good game to play with friends and family.

Kindergarten Meet the Teacher Night

Tonight, we got to meet Skyler's new kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Hoelzen. He also has an afternoon teacher, Mrs. Muir. He was excited to see his new room and some of his future friends. It was so crowded and we only got to chat with Mrs. Hoelzen briefly, since there were dozens of parents there. We've heard some great things about her, so we are blessed that Skyler gets to be in her class.

What Daddy Sees

After his weekly tumbling class, Skyler decided to borrow my glasses to see what it looked like with them. If he leaves them on too much, he might end up needing them!

Skyler and His GFs

Skyler, Eliana, and Amelia got together once again this summer to play and hang out. I think he was a little upset at Amelia stealing his pirate hat and me for taking his picture.

Renea and The Kids

Mommy and kids got together for a rare group photo today. Afterwards, I took Skyler on a short outing up the street. Our shadows look pretty cool, I think.
