Luke School Pics – (age 4)

I’m a little bit speechless.  Listen, when he left for school his hair was nice and combed over. Apparently right before the pictures were taken he had to make sure he had proper “soccer hair” and proceeded to comb his hair up with his fingers.  It’s hard not to love this boy.  Even when his hair is this ridiculous.

Here he is in past school photos:

Thank you for coming into the world and being part of our family Lukie.  We love you  more than you will ever know.

The World of Wings! Luke’s first real field trip!

This week was a very special week for Lukie and I. On Thursday I was able to join the whole monkey class for their first bus field trip! We went to the world of wings butterfly museum and it was awesome! When we pulled up at school and Ingrid dropped us off Luke was mesmerized by the school bus. An actual school bus. He had the biggest grin I have ever seen:

On the bus we sang “the wheels on the bus,” which Luke was not shy about belting out. We were bus buddies so we cuddled the whole bus ride.

When we got to the museum we finally were able see some bugs! Luke is not scared or intimidated by the creepy crawlers in the building, and just love seeing the “owl butterfly” and the “snake butterfly.”

We got to hang out and learn about butterfly’s, lizards and lots of small creepy things. We were field trip buddies and it was so fun. Luke loved seeing the giant tortoises, the lizards and the poison dart frogs. We so had a lot of fun eating lunch and working on our crafts with Luke’s best friend Kaito. It was so much fun, and ever since we came back we have noticed what s big boy we have in the house. He certainly thinks so!

I love you Luke and am so happy to be with you on this trip!
