School and other stuff

Gabe took another step toward big-kid-dom with the start of preschool Sept 1. He is adjusting well and seems to really love it. Here's a shot of him on the first day -- doesn't he look old?!?!

Since Gabe gets to do something new and fun, I thought Claire should have something special to look forward to as well, so we signed her up for her first dance class. She loves to put on her special "dancy skirt" and twirl around with her friends Sylvia and Phoenix who are also in her class. In this picture she is showing me "passe" while eating a breadstick.

Trey's birthday!

Little Mister T-Bear turned One this week! The Traynors and Heckers (plus a few other special peeps) got together at Kate and Huck's new house to celebrate the big milestone on Sunday.

I had the honor of making his first cake, which I made as a banana-flavored monkey cake for the littlest monkey in the crew. He got lots of new clothes and a big fun truck that the other kids all wanted to take away from him. I don't think Gabe and Claire or Morgan and Sydney think Trey is big enough to be playing with toys that they themselves like!

It was a lot of fun, even when Trey took a nap in the middle of the party to recharge. You can view more here.
