John is 8

On Friday John turned 8!
I can't believe this little guy is now 8!!!  Time has just flown bye.

Love these four kiddos.
 John had a little family party at home with Hans' homemade pizza.  That is all he wanted.

 He received numerous presents.  But I think his favorites were the two Lego sets.

I have to say I am loving the Legos.  My parents gave John a set a few days earlier and for 2 days I didn't hear any fighting or cross words from my boys.  They sat at the dining room table for a couple of hours after school for two days putting it all together.  They had just finished that set when Sophie gave John another set.  I had absolutely NO FIGHTING yesterday while they were putting that together. Go LEGOS!

 John wanted a Lego cake.  I attempted to make one without a mold.  I have lots of notes for myself if one of the other boys chooses a Lego cake in the future.

He's only been 8 for 3 days and he says they have been the best 3 days ever.

First Day of School

The boys had their first day of school last week!  All three Fiene boys are now in school 5 days a week!

John had his first day of school on Tuesday.
 John with our next door neighbor, Mason.  Both of them are ready to start 3rd grade.

 My big 3rd grader.  I can't believe we have a kid in 3rd grade!

Happy to be waiting for the bus.  Gus would be joining John on the bus the next day.

The day after John started school the other two had their first day.
 Gus started Kindergarten.
Gus was very deliberate in looking away from the camera.  Not sure what that was all about.  Apparently he wants to be a model. He might want to work on that awkward smile before that happens.

 Anders started preschool!  He was so excited.

 My three boys.

 John was very sweet and protective with Gus riding the bus.  What you can't see in this picture is John holding Gus' hand, leading him the whole way.  What a sweet brother.

Anders walking into school for the first time.
He looks so small.

The boys all had a wonderful first week of school.  They all LOVE their teachers and look forward to going back everyday.

While I Was In Wittenberg...


 The boys enjoyed some quiet time playing with Uncle Mark's old legos.

They also crashed at the end of each night.  Even Fritz was tired.
