Zachary seems to be learning a lot at Pre-K. Last week, I was very worried about him when he was seemingly unable to press down on a crayon hard enough to write, much less write a letter. For example, during the first week of school, he made this:
Owl Babies. He told us all about the owl Bill who says "I want my Mama!" and about the other nocturnal animals that he learned about. Here are his owl projects!

Last Sunday and Monday, for Labor Day Weekend, we went to Omaha. The last time (and only other time) I'd been in Omaha was just after I broke my ankle. This time was much nicer! On Sunday we spent the day at the zoo.
Zachary of course complained that we didn't go on the train. However, on Sunday we did go (after a quick dip in the pool) to the Botanical Garden, which houses an exhibit on Union Pacific Trains. He seemed happy about that! We also were able to see part of the Labor Day Parade, which we all enjoyed.
On our way home, we stopped at the Lewis and Clark Visitors Center in Nebraska City, where we could see the Missouri River flooding. Due to the flooding, the highway is closed and it takes one hour longer to get to Omaha from Kansas City. However, I love living close enough for weekend trips to exciting cities!
