Ben started preschool at Beiger Elementary School this month. We can't believe how much he has grown!
Of course, Sam thought that meant he was also going to school.
Ben's first day of school was on September 3rd. Here he is in front of our house wearing one of his favorite shirts - Lego Star Wars.
color = blue
food = pizza
animal = fish
sport = he says football but always talks about starting a soccer team with his cousins called the sharks (the boy LOVES to run)
When Ben grows up he wants to teach people about fish (Dave took him to the local fish hatchery which he loved seeing the fish at different stages of life)
Sam joining in on the pictures. Ben is such a great big brother and enjoys having Sam to play with.
Love how close these boys are.
You can see the back of our new mini-van. My car was starting to have problems (alternator going out, needed new tires, etc) so Dave found a great deal on the mini-van and we traded "Goldie" in. The mini-van made a HUGE difference in our trip to Kansas. Ben likes to call it our RV.
When Ben was picked up, Sam CRIED. He didn't understand why Bubba got to go to school and he didn't. (It didn't help that Sam went to the open house the week prior and got to see how much fun Ben would be having.) So to help Sam transition to the change, we took him to the zoo (Jackie stayed home from work in the morning).
As you can see, Sam finally got over being sad. This was a random elephant at the zoo that we let Sam ride. He thought it was great.
The elephant was right in front of the red panda exhibit for some reason.
The lion made me laugh so I had to take a picture. It reminds me of Katie wanting her belly scratched.
Here is the picture of the sign at the school Ben goes to preschool at. The teachers pick up and drop off kids at their cars so I wasn't able to take a picture of Ben at the sign. The preschool is a program through the Mishawaka schools which is why it is at one of the local elementary schools.
