Who's got short shorts?

Carson is so funny! The other day he comes down the stairs and says, 'Mom, look at my new shorts' . I was laughing so hard because they are Build-a-Bear shorts And I don't even know how he got them on that far! It was too cute.

Sunday shoes

These are the shoes Carson wore to church today. I told everyone to get their shoes and get in the car. Halfway there Carson asks for help with his shoes. Seriously?! I can't believe he picked up two different shoes and didn't realize it. I mean they're not even CLOSE! My first instinct was to stop by Target or somewhere and get him a cheap pair of shoes, and then I thought, No! He doesn't NEED any more shoes! He HAS shoes. And he needs to learn to focus on tasks better obviously! So gosh darn it, I guess he's going to have to wear these ones for a couple of hours and just suffer through it. So yes, I made him wear them (notice also that they are both RIGHT foot shoes). I don't think anyone else we ran into in public noticed, but every time I looked at him I couldn't help but start giggling! I hope he learned his lesson :) PS. In true Carson form, he didn't seem too bothered by it after a couple of minutes.

We Sail!

Just like Bob at Lake Winnepausaukee, we can now say "WE SAIL!" We won a day trip on a 30ft sailboat at an auction, so last Sunday afternoon the owners Lance & Mary Lindsley took us out on their boat the Viking Star. We left from the Tacoma Yacht Club and sailed in Commencement Bay and over to Brown's Point, Maury Island, and Vashon Island. It was perfect weather! Sunny and a bit windy. We saw some guys sailboarding and that was really cool. They would flip up into the air about 20 feet on the boards! Hayden was deathly afraid we would see a shark or a whale, but no such luck. I took a whole bunch of really cool pictures with my new fancy camera, only to find out after we got home that I didn't have the memory card installed!!!! Thank goodness I snapped a couple with my little cheapie camera (because those were the ones I was going to quickly upload and blog with) I feel a little sick when I think of all the cool pictures I could have had. It was just SO beautiful out there and such a fun experience!

First day of school

Ahhh, the first day of school. It was a blur of activity making sure everyone had all their school supplies, a lunch, and knew where to go once they got to school! But everyone made the bus and found their classes. Madeline is at Glacier Middle School in 7th (!!!!!) grade, Hayden is big man on campus at Mountain Meadow Elem. in 5th grade, Zoe is in 3rd, and Carson is finally FULL day in 1st grade! They are ALL officially out of the nest from 8-4! Of course what did I do on MY first day with no kids at home? I went up to the school to help out and check on PTA stuff! Ahhh, but I will have no problem staying busy at home, and I enjoy having quiet time, ha ha! It's just me and Puff!
