Day out with Thomas!

Originally uploaded by shaunadieter
So on Saturday, Max, Grandma and Grandpa Pregitzer and I went to the "Day out with Thomas!" in Boone Iowa. Max isn't a Thomas fanatic like some of the kids we saw ( he still is a Star Wars fanatic!) but he really really liked the trains and how they worked. He also enjoyed all the fun activities they had available to the kids while you waited for your turn on the train. We had a great time - thank you Grandma and Grandpa!

Kid's Day at the farmer's market

So we headed down early to the farmer's market this morning since it was kid's day. They had all sorts of things set up for kids. They had a guy making ballon animals - he was kind enough to make Max a sword. There was also face painting and tattoos (temperary). The fire department and JCAS had their trucks set up so that the "kids" could climb inside and see them It was neat seeing what Jered works with when he is at school, and what he'll be driving later when he gets hired!


Tie Dying

This is Max's first tie-dyed T-shirt. It turned out really well!

First Day of School!

Today was Max's first day of Kinderfarm for the 2009-2010 school year! I believe that this year was a lot easier on both Max and Daddy, since they had been through this before. No tears shed from either. Max likes his room and his teacher. All in all a pretty easy first day.
Yesterday was also a first for Max - he had his first Dentist appointment with Dr. Bender. He is offically part of the "No Cavities Club" (horrah!) and the doctor says he has very healthy teeth and gums. It also appears that he has a large mouth (I don't know where he got that from!) and there is a good chance that his adult teeth will have plenty of room - so no braces - hopefully!

At school - First day

Max and I went to the ice cream social at Kinderfarm. We got to meet his teacher, Mrs. Loan, and see his room. This year he is a Green Roomer! Two of the children from his class last year are in his room this year, but there are many new friends to make.
