First haircut at the salon

So I finally did it. Knew it needed to be done & I was actually really happy with the way it turned out.

Dinosaur Tracks in Leander

Found this place via the internet and had to trek into a 
sketchy path off a highway and under a freeway overpass. 

It was pretty hot for the boys but they had a great time catching turtles, frogs, and searching for the dinosaur tracks. Unfortunately Will had himself a meltdown and I had to carry him out kicking and screaming for about a quarter mile. Good times.
In case there was any doubt about the size of my feet here they are in an actual dinosaur track:

Concert at the park

Spent August & September of our time in Texas sick

Tried to drag ourselves out of bed for some live music at least one night at a nearby park in Leander. 

Wouldn't think Bluegrass could be so cool!

Will starts preschool

One great thing about Texas is they have great recourses in their schools. As soon as we got here and I brought in Will's test results for his speech they suggested we get him in this program right away. This was great until I learned it was four hours a day five days a week! I was concerned not only that this was going to be too much for Will, but I had never done this with a child this young before. They'd always been my home buddy. 
Gratefully he adjusted fairly quickly and now goes to school happy most every day. We started noticing improvements in his speech right away. 

Coming home on the bus!

Unfortunately for Will school starts at 7:45am. He was pretty shell shocked in the beginning:) He's never been a morning guy.

Here he is with his new backpack all ready to go!
