Oral Book Report

Ollie had an oral book report this week.
His assignment was to dress like your favorite character and tell your class about the story.
He choose a Thomas the Tank Engine book, his favorite.
He wanted to dress like Thomas, but I couldn't figure out how to do it, so we settled for Sir Topham Hatt. Ollie took Josh's black dress shoes and his grey tie and my felt hat to school. He also took a Thomas engine.
He told me that he wasn't going to put the stuff on, but I guess he did, long enough for his teachers to get a picture.
He also told his class about the story. Everyone at school was so surprised and proud of Ollie because he did so well. I am so proud too.

Fall Plays

Today Ollie had Fall Plays in his classroom with the rest of his first grade class.
The parents were welcome to come today as well.
Knowing that Ollie doesn't like crowds... all the extra parents, I was not sure how it would go.
It went well!
He was in two plays.
In one he was a scarecrow.

He kept his hat on the whole time. Ollie hates wearing hats.
He really didn't sing, but he stayed up there the whole time. That is amazing.

He was also a goblin? in the 13 days of Halloween.
He was the 13 ghosts.
he looks so cute with those ears on.

here he is holding up his ghosts.

He did good here too. He did say 13 ghosts after the little girl beside him told him to say it. It was great!

Great Job Ollie, mommy is so proud of you!

The Little Engine that Could

Ollie's favorite book, since he was one year old, has been The Little Engine That Could.
When he was one, he had a little chunky book with the train that counted to ten. 
He loved it!

Well, we still have all those books, but he wasn't paying too much attention to them until he discovered the 2010 move on Netflix.
Now, Avatar and Bakugan have taken a backseat to this movie, at least for the moment.
Ollie seems to really like the little boy in the movie. I don't know if he relates to the little boy or he is just reliving an old friend, but he loves this movie!

When Ollie was little, he used to love having his picture taken. He would smile and say "cheese" with the biggest grin on his face. For about the last two years, that has changed. He will say "cheese" but he will try to hid his face, look down, stick his tongue out or any number of things. Sunday I tried to get a picture of Ollie with his brother Van and his dad. The above picture is the second picture I took, and I just love it! I love his big smile and his jump!

here is the first picture:

lost tooth

Ollie lost his first tooth last week. To be honest, I did not know how that would go, like all new things with Ollie. The loose tooth went fine. He came home Friday after school and told me his tooth was loose and started moving it. Sure enough it was loose. He wiggled it all weekend and kept saying "ouch". Monday after school, he showed me it was really loose, I told him it would come out soon. Half an hour later, he starts yelling for me. I come down stairs and he tells me he can't find his tooth. "It fell out!" he said. Well, I found it on the floor and showed it to him. He looked at it, shrugged his shoulders and went back to playing on the computer. No big deal. Ollie is always surprising me.

somewhere over the rainbow

Here is a picture that Ollie made at school. I love it. In fact I am going to frame it and hang it on the wall. It is a picture of Ollie standing under a rainbow. He looks happy. That makes me very happy. It makes me feel like everything is going to be alright.
