New School Year and Other Firsts

We finished the long weekend with our traditional Labor Day breakfast at Panera.
 We've been lucky enough to get some great hand-me-down clothes and I just couldn't resist dressing Esme up a bit on Monday afternoon.  I think she looks like a little hipster!
 Parker has been so loving with everyone in the family lately.  He even gave my mom a great big hug unprompted tonight!
 Wednesday was welcome day at preschool.  While not officially the first day of school, I decided to take pictures since he will be taking the bus from daycare on Monday.
We got to meet both of his teachers again, Ms. Amy and Ms. Heather.  We also got to meet the three paras and his speech teacher, Ms. Bobbie, who he had during his first half year.  As I have previously shared, he will be in a co-taught class with regular preschool students and special ed students.  He had a very hard time focusing during our short time there.  He can quickly sense when something is new and when multiple adults are giving him instruction.  He tries to push limits further during these times.  I think within the first few weeks of class he will get in to a routine and start listening better.
 Wednesday was a big day for Esme as well!  She got to see her first Apple keynote (Parker's was back in 2012) and took her first ride in the stroller like a big kid!
 She was so content for our whole walk.  Parker kept patting her on the head, which I thought was sweet.
 Another week (almost) in the books.  This weekend looks to be fun with a kidless date night, Parker starting gymnastics and the Vikings kicking off the season against the Titans.  Esme was in a football mood and donned a onesie that was Parker's today!
