Drew & Jake at their first day of school.

Drew started kindergarten at the public school; not a lot of shots, he's an old pro by now. The teacher has already reported him for being "talky" in class and he's got several new friends.

Jake is still a little young for preschool, but he seems to like it and we know the teachers from when Drew went through. So far he's doing well and is not too disruptive.

Jake feeds the turtles:

note to self: turn the iPhone sideways next time

Drew can "gallop" pretty well, but can't skip. Prior to his preschool evaluation we didn't realize it was a critical life skill.

We went out to Tahoe for the MLK weekend, to let the boys see some snow.

The whole video (a few shorter excerpts available below):

The boys picked up an audience -- Drew started taking the jumps at the bottom, then he offered to take Jake on them. After a few rides down (and over an hour at it) they started to flip. On the first flip Jake ate some snow, and was mostly shocked.

The second flip was a little tougher tho; Drew rolled over on Jake, who got a few bumps & scratches. We had already started to plan our exit, so we left after that spill.

We asked Drew to sing "Happy Birthday Kendall and Granddaddy," so he did. Later he figured out we really wanted him to sing the Birthday Song.

Drew made a dinosaur hat for his "Mad Hatter Tea Party" at school:
