School boy.

There have been oh-so-many changes brewing in our house lately but this one has to be my favorite. Henry the school boy.

Ever since we took a tour of Henry's school earlier this year it has been stuck in his little toddler brain. He couldn't wait to go back. But even when they are fearless you still worry. How will they do being completely away from home and in a new environment?

This was taken at the end of his first day. I think it was a hit.

My favorite thing (as I'm sure it every mother's) is all the artwork that he proudly hands to me at the end of each day. He brings home the coolest stuff and likes to do "work" at home too.

We have been using all his school artwork to decorate the walls in his new room to make it feel more like his own. He has adjusted to our move like a champ.

The other kids in the house have investigated and acclimated to their new environment nicely as well. But there has been some ongoing strange behavior noticed.

Speaking of behavior- 2 1/2 years olds really cover the entire spectrum, don't they? I don't think this has a thing to do with our move however. Hello terrible twos/threes.

The move itself was a nightmare. It usually is, isn't it? We couldn't be more thankful for our friends Jen and Michael who absolutely saved us from disaster.

We really broke in the new rental house in last week with a slumber party with a couple of our favorite kids. Henry absolutely adores his cousins. And I think they feel the same. Well, mostly? The look on Cohen's face, while being smothered with Henry's adoration, is priceless!

One of favorite things about our new neighborhood (other than the fact that we actually have a yard!) is a really great walking trail that passes right through it. When Ella Grace and Cohen spent the night with us, Will and I decided it would be a good idea to take the three kids on a nice long walk to make sure they were good and tired at bedtime, so we hit the walking trail.

About five minutes into the walk I overheard Will trying to convince the kids that we were on the official "Avengers Trail". Not only that, but proceeded to show them "evidence" of Hulk smashing, Thor's hammer and Captain America's shield. Ella Grace wasn't buying it, but the boys were mesmerized. And the Brit was quite pleased with himself.

This is the other thing that really pleases him lately. And I just love this photo :) Thanks for stopping by!
