Fixing His Truck

My Opa came over the other day to do some work on Michael's car. The two older boys were in school, so Zack and I went out to watch and keep Opa company. Zack watched Opa with the tools and ran around the car looking at everything. After we came in Zack went over to his truck, (he drives this truck around everyday, it is by far his favorite toy) he tipped the truck over onto its side and started "working" on it. At first he was using his hands, but then he got up and went downstairs, grabbed a few of his tools and then really worked on the truck. It was so cute how he was imitating Opa and using his tools just like his Opapa was doing.

Jakob & Mommy's Date

Jakob and I went out on a date for his birthday. First we went mini-golfing, then Jakob did the batting cage and bumper boats.

Ready to go! Jakob was really excited about the batting cage!

He did great! He hit most of the balls. He loved it and wants to go back sometime to do that again!

Next was the bumper boats!

After the amusement park, Jakob and I went out for dinner. It was a great evening spent with my big boy!

Back to School

The boys are back in school, Jakob is in grade 3 and Levi in Kindergarten. They both have had a great first few days and are looking forward to the year.

Levi in his Kindergarten classroom.

Both of the boys are taking the bus after school. They enjoy coming home on the bus and it's not too long of a ride.

Levi getting off the bus after school. Levi comes home in time for lunch and gets dropped off right outside our house!

And Zack is loving the alone time with Mommy!
