Andre’s preschool gives him a one or two page homework 3 nights a week. It mostly consists of reading stories with a parent, cutting out shapes, gluing and coloring. Last night was Andre’s first homework assignment, and naturally Harper wanted to do the same thing Andre was doing. I have to say I was quite impressed with the way Harper followed all the instructions and especially with his coloring skills. See it for yourself:

Yesterday a friend of mine informed me that there was an opening in preschool her daughter is attending. I immediately jumped on the opportunity and enrolled Andre. The preschool is part of Richland Elementary. The kids attend it Monday through Thursday from 11:30 to 1:50. The staff is super friendly. There are 4 teachers to the class of 21 kids! And the best part of it is that it is FREE! Andre loved it and is looking forward to going back tomorrow. Here are a couple of pictures from Andre’s first day of school.

Better later than never

I know, I know… Halloween is over, but I somehow didn’t come around to posting the pictures of the boys until now. The boys loved their costumes. Jeff took them trick-or-treating, so there are no pictures of that, but they definitely got way too much candy.

I carved our little pumpkins the boys and I bought at the pumpkin patch. Harper picked a bat, while Andre just wanted a scary face.

I realized that I have been putting pictures just on Facebook lately, but some of my friends and most of my family don't have facebook accounts so here are a few pictures from the last couple of weeks. And yes, we went swimming in November! Gotta love Southern California!
