Carson's 1st Day of Preschool

So, we started this morning off by getting up and at 'em at 6:45! Carson marched into our room and said, "Hi Mommy"! I asked him if he knew what today was and he said is a cute shy voice, "School"! Of course, he was thrilled to go! He was out in the garage waiting before Michael and I were even dressed!

When we got to school he walked right into his class room and could've care less if he said goodbye to any of us! He went right to the workbench and grabbed an apron that he wanted to wear! I tried to get a picture of him by his cubbie but he was not thrilled about that at all!

When I picked him up he asked if he could go back to school! It was just too cute! He really didn't want to leave! After the drive in the car with no drink and both children crying for who know what, we made it home! He kept talking about showing us his papers...he was excited to shared with us what he had painted!!

So, the 1st day was a success and Carson is ready to go again!

Summer Fun!!

Well, I decided that I really needed to get in an August post, 1. because I haven't done one in over a month and 2. b/c who knows when I will have time for the next one! I will try my best to keep up, but who knows!

We have had a fun and busy summer! There is never a dull moment in our house and we are always on the go! I can't even remember the last weekend that we just relaxed!! We've been to birthday parties, church functions, bbqs, visited college friends, welcomed new babies, the rodeo and who knows what!

Michael had been busy juggling his two jobs! Some nights he is up til after 11pm just trying to get everything done! However, he is really enjoying what he is doing and God has been providing which is all that we can ask!!

Carson & Lily both never cease to amaze us! They are such little adults! Some of the things that come out of their mouths seem so grown-up!! Carson likes to test us with "no" quite often and Lily has started to get a little bossy...everyone assures me it is a stage, but we are working on it!!

We all are very anxious to meet Miss. Allie! Only 27 more days, which seems impossible! Carson comments on how 'big' I am! Of course, I appreciate that soooo much! Lily on the other hand wants to kiss and talk to her! Everything seems to be ready for her arrival accept my house! Nothing can really stay clean enough and my list of "to do's" dosen't seem to get any shorter! Michael has been a great help and I appreciate it!!

We've been trying harder these last couple weeks to get Lily potty trained, but she just doesn't seem all that ready! Carson does great until he wants to manipulate us, but other that that he is potty trained! I'm not stressing over it! When she is ready it will happen!

Carson starts preschool next week! Can you believe it, I can't?! We went for enrollment on Monday and he was SO EXCITED and didn't want to leave! I'm sure that it won't always be that way! I'm a little nervous...I can't believe that he is old enough to go already. Where has time gone?? As muchs as Lily says and does, I wish that there was a program for 2 year olds...she seems to be on top of things!! He will be attending on Tues/Thurs mornings so that will be a great time for Allie, Lily and I to hang out and do some girlie things!!

Also, this past week Lily got her ears pierced! Yes, we let out 2 year old have earrings! No, we are not BAD parents! Some people seem to be so judgemental about it and frankly I don't really care! Its not like I'm going to let her wear 2" hoops!! She looks really cute and doesn't seem to be bothered by them! She even helps me turn them when it is time to cleam them!!

I will try hard to get pictures posted of Carson's 1st day of Preschool next week! Hope that you all have had a great summer!!
