This is our NEW (to us!) mini van. Our car died completely last summer and we have been driving my parent's car that my sister drove around before she left on her mission. So we have been looking for a WhiLe now. I am SO excited!(I am a little weird, I know) It is so much more SPACIOUS than our car. I thought I was excited, but Bret seems to be just as if not more excited than I am. We drove to Spokane WA to get it (3 hours away) and as soon as we got back Bret bought all this cleaning stuff-it was dirty on the inside-and cleaned it FOREVER. HE can't stop talking about it. So, I am not the only one extremely giddy about our new car.
Oh, in case you noticed that weird hat Kade was wearing in the previous picture-this is it at a closer look. Bret served his mission in Spain and brought this Barcelona soccer team hat back and when we went to take a pic of the van Kade wanted to put it on. He wore it the whole time we were outside... another weird member of the family!
KADE AND NURSERY
(The overly-sensitive rambling of a mother)
So I wanted to say that Kade started nursery yesterday. I really was thinking it might go bad, but I was hoping that it wouldn't. It went bad. Kade is really really shy in new places and when I took him in, he did not want to be there. I tried playing with him for a little bit and the nursery ladies told me they could see how it goes, so I left. Kade was crying and hugging my legs and...just freaking out. He did not want to be left. But the thing is I am a primary teacher and HAVE to go teach my class. Bret teaches a Sunday school class, so he couldn't take Kade either. He actually teaches right next to the nursery room and said that he could hear Kade crying A LOT. Not constantly though, so that was good. So, when it was time to go the ladies said Kade latched on to one and wanted to sit on her lap the whole time and every so often he would look up at her and see that it wasn't me and start crying. Oh well. Hopefully things get better, but I am very unsure how to get him to NOT hate nursery. Also, I know it is only the 1st Sunday we tried it, but does it ever get better for kids like mine?? I just hope it happens before the next baby comes, or sometime around there!
