School Days are Here Again!

The Bus just came and picked up Carson. He will be going to preschool 3 times a week this year. Luke and I don't know what to do with ourselves!

Luke was ready to go too. He was not happy with me when I made him go in the house .

The Diaper Fairy came by to visit

The Diaper Fairy came last week. I told Carson he was going to be in the neighborhood and if we wrapped up all his diapers in a box and left it on the doorstep the Diaper Fairy would come by and pick it up and leave him a special present. When he woke up from his nap he heard the door bell ring.


Big boy underwear, yea!
A letter from him (is it weird that I think the Diaper Fairy is a man?) 

It is going okay. We still aren't all the way there, but all the diapers are gone and he is wearing underwear!

The Shell family picnic was at a waterpark this weekend. The boys had THE TIME OF THEIR LIVES, so we decided to go ahead and buy passes for next year. Here is Carson's pass. I had to scan it and share. Yep, classic Carson at this age.

PS--Any of you locals get a pass too and we can go together!! You can use it for the next four weekends of this year and all of 2013.

Bad boys, bad boys, what ya gonna do...

Carson has a police car toy that plays 5 seconds of the COPS theme song when you push a button. He was making me push it over and over again so I decided to get the song off youtube.

Here was the result.

The Island of Heaven

Last night during bedtime scriptures with Carson:

C- "Where does Jesus live"

L- "Remember, Jesus lives in Heaven with Heavenly Father"

C- "Ollie lives there too?"

L- "No honey, Ollie does not live in Heaven"

C- "Yea Mom, Ollie lives on Island of Heaven" (Ollie always refers to where he lives as THE ISLAND  of Hawaii)

L- "It's the island of Hawaii, not the island of Heaven"

C- "Oh Hawaii"

I know there are many people who compare Hawaii to Heaven, but I thought it was important to clear this one up.

Hawaii here we come!

We booked our tickets today for early fall. Yippy! I can't wait to go stay with Becky and her family. Carson is going to be in heaven with not only his cool big boy cousin Oliver, but warm ocean water too.
