The Future

Manny said to me the other day,

"Mama when I grow up, I am going to be the *man*" (so I misunderstood what he said)

I said, "You are going to be a man?"

Manny, "No, Mama. I am going to be the Mayor, you know like Barack Obama, but the mayor of 86 State Street"

How do you get...

...three 4 year olds to sit still for the obligatory tire swing picture? A lot of "look at the dinosaur on my head", even more, "everyone say pickle sandwich" and a lot of "give me your funniest face".

Ahhhh....a good one:

First Day of Pre-K

Makenzie and I made Manny his celebratory first day of school chocolate chip pancakes (we made these last year too for his first day at The Neighborhood).

Makenzie stirring the pancake mix:

Adding the chocolate chips (okay, more chocolate chips):

Manny finally woke to enjoy his pancakes:

Kenzie loving the fact that one day a year they get to eat chocolate for breakfast:

Manny loving his friendship bracelet from McKayla:

Getting ready to go to school:

Getting off the bus after a long day of school:

"Yay Manny 1st day of Pre-K 8/31/09". We made signs for Manny in the driveway

Relaxing after his tough day:

Pre-K Orientation

Manny started Pre-K this year at Capri Street School in Brewer. He was very excited to go to orientation.

Walking down the hall to the cafeteria:

We were sitting on one side of the cafeteria and this little boy came in with his parents and sat on the other side of the room. Manny stood up, walked over to this little boy and said, "hi, my name is Manny." It was too cute.

Playing on the playground:

Getting ready to take a test-run on the school bus:
