leaving on a jet plane

i dropped the boys at the airport saturday morning and sent them one their way to green bay for a week.
i was sad to not be going!  luca was super excited to fly on the airplane (kinda a first for him).  aaron is really excited to show his sons his hometown.  and the grandparents are beside themselves with excitement....this will be luca's first visit to green bay, and the last time true was there was halloween '08!.  time to show off the grand kids!

Pomp and Circumstance

while we missed the actual ceremony.....luca "graduated" from preschool.  he was there for pictures, and to write some very important words.  this big boy is pretty stoked for kindergarten!

his statement reads:

1. What is the most important thing about you?
     My brother
2.  What do you like best about Nurturing Knowledge School?
      All the teachers are nice
3.  What makes you smile?
      When my mom commands me to do a picture.
4.  What excites you most about kindergarten?
      I get to play on the computers and see my nanny every day.
5.  What is the most important thing you have learned in your life?
      My mom and dad love me and they teach me how to be a good boy.

my silly Lu

luca is the silliest erbeck in our household.  he often has us in stitches, because he has said (or sung) something so hilarious or obscure that we can't help but crack up.  he loves to make people laugh, because he knows it feels so good to be happy.
he  cracked me up the other night when he insisted on goggles to take a bath. note his LONG hair.

luca has been asking for a buzz cut for quite general, i'm against buzz cuts.  sure, the cuts are easy and they last long and they are cheap....but, i just prefer a little messy mop head of a little boy.  but the kid kept asking and asking and asking.....and i guess i decided it was time to let him make his own decision about how he presents himself to the public.  so off to barber and when he jumped into the chair, he raised one arm, finger pointed in the air, and said, "buzz cut for me!".   everybody laughed, and goodbye he is (he did a little dance for the crowd when he was done).
he loves his cut, and he does look cute, and i suppose i'll get used  to it.
