Our Little Man

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:52 am

Today starts a new adventure and chapter in Hayden’s life, we dropped off the little man at preschool today. We were both really excited and a little sad at the same time. We were really excited because we feel it’s a good school, we know he needs to socialize with others his age, and he’s going to start learning so much (he already is ahead of others his age). We were a little sad because he’s starting to change so quickly now and he’s already going off to school. In the short time I’ve known him he has gone from a little boy to a little man. Needless to say, though, we were so proud to see him off to school and he blended in quite naturally – he even was okay with us leaving and said “bye” without a tear in his eye. I can’t say the same for Nickey although she held up well ;). I gave him a haircut yesterday and we had his backpack all loaded up with supplies he needed for school so he looked really cute. He was wearing his backpack most of the time and could barely walk because it was a little too heavy for him, but he was bound and determinted to wear it. We took some pictures of him wearing his backpack before we left this morning which I’ll post when we get them developed.

As far as the weekend adventures, we had to stay close to home because I was primary on-call at work. On Saturday we did actually venture out farther than we had anticipated but fortunately I didn’t get paged. We went to man’s land (Home Depot) and bought some paint for Hayden’s room. Nickey is going to paint it kind of like a sky with stars that glow in the dark. I know he’s going to totally dig it. We drove from Des Moines all the way up to Everett as much along the Puget Sound as possible and got out at Golden Gardens to stretch H’s legs for a while. He really likes the beach and especially throwing rocks in the water. Up in Everett we stopped by the boat for a bit then headed back home again.

On Sunday we lounged around home for most of the morning. I started Tivo’ing some of H’s favorite shows so we watched a few of those then some of the MythBusters marithon. In the afternoon we decided to go house hunting and ended up at a Quadrant development that hadn’t started being built yet and talked to a sales person. We checked out a few of the models in another development and we liked what we saw, we even know which one we want and what upgrades we’d like. Fortunately we (Nickey and I) both seem to be in sync on what we like and don’t like…for the most part. We capped off the day with dinner at Black Angus.

I just have to say how proud I am of my familly. There’s someone who has been reading my blog and has accused me of “laying it all out there”. I just have one thing to say to them – I don’t care because I want to tell the world about what I have and how I feel about these two. I love them to death. 😛

    Man, Hayden is going to have a blast with his first day at preschool! Sometimes I wish I could go back and be in school and not have to worry about working and all the stuff that goes with it. 🙂

    Fun stuff man!
