More conversations

Carson:  Mommy, Will there be birthday parties in heaven?
Mom:  I hope so.  I bet we’ll have the best birthday parties in heaven.
He really seems to be fascinated with heaven right now.  He asks lot’s of questions about heaven.
Carson:  We can’t find a star scream anywhere.
Mom:  I’m sorry.  We’ll just keep looking.
Carson:  Just go buy it on ebay 🙂

First day of school

Today was our first “official” day of Kindergarten.  Carson has been begging to start school since his birthday in May.  We’ve been doing “school” for a while but I ordered some new fun stuff for Kindergarten and he’s really excited.  I was going to wait until August but it’s been so hot lately we’ve stayed indoors more than usual.  I figured starting a few weeks early wouldn’t be a big deal.

We went to Chick-fil-A for breakfast because that is what Carson wanted to do.  We all went out to eat and spent some time together before Daddy flew to Baltimore for 2 days.  We stayed and played for a while and then came home and I put Calen down for a nap.

I knew better than to pull everything out and try to do school in the morning.  I thought I had enough things to keep Camron occupied but I was wrong.  I quickly realized that school in the morning was not going to work 🙂  After a few meltdowns and a few talks we made it through our first day.

The rest of the week went really well.  Carson really enjoys doing “school.”  His favorite thing right now is math and bible time.  He is doing really well with Handwriting and he loves to play phonics games.  We really love to read but sometimes I put it off and then forget.  We always read at bedtime but I want more reading throughout the day.  We have made it a point every morning to set a timer for 20 minutes and go curl up in bed and read.  I hope that he always loves to learn.


Some recent conversations with Carson 🙂

Carson:  Mom, I want a starscream(transformer).

Me:  No

Carson:  Why?

Me:  Because you don’t always get a toy just because you want it.  It cost money and you need to earn it.

Carson:  I can buy it with my check card.


I’m sitting in the chair pumping milk for Calen.

Carson:  Mom, Will you have to take your breast pump to heaven and pump milk for Calen?

Mom:  I hope not.  I’m sure that God will have food for everyone.
