Ahhhh only a few precious days left of summer vacation left. So sad. It's been a pure joy to be at home with my little man (and hubs too) these 8 weeks. I absolutely HATE being away from him every day for work. If it wasn't for that health insurance....

I've been working on school work while he's napping the last few days because I won't have time once school begins. We get very little prep time and no free time during the school day and I'm not giving up any family time for school work at home in the evenings and weekends. I stuck to my guns about that last year and it worked, however we will have even less prep time this year so I'm not sure how I'm going to get that done. If I can't get it done at work, I guess it won't get done at all!! Life will go on....

Yesterday Carson and I accompanied Kenny on an appointment over an hour away and then stopped at Cabela's on the way home. He loves that store and it's fun for me too! We let Carson push the cart to keep him occupied...he loved it. The pic is blurry but that's because he was in motion!

I think I have some good ideas for Kenny's Christmas presents too....and yes, I am already thinking about Christmas. That's the planner in me!

Knocked out. That's exactly what we were! And daddy found it to be a photo op. So glad he did!

Slow Sunday

It's a very quiet Sunday morning.....Kenny, Carson, and the dog are all still sleeping. I snuck out of bed, turned on the coffee, and grabbed the computer while I can. It's only a matter of time till I hear sounds including needs, wants and endless requests, so I'm taking full advantage of this time to blog and shop online for new shoes for school. And bras. And pants, and about every other part of my wardrobe for fall. I love these moments:)
Friday Kenny and I took Carson to the zoo. He's only 1, so while he had a good time and laughed and pointed at everything, he probably wasn't too sure where he was. The good thing about 1 year olds is that as long as they are smiling and looking around, all is well. We had a great time, didn't get too many pictures though. We were busy looking at things!! The exhibit that caught the baby's attention the most was in the aquarium building, the BIG fish that swim right by the windows. He screamed with delight and pointed the whole time, so cute! No pictures of that, but here are a couple of my boys....

Today the baby and are STAYING HOME. We have been on the go constantly lately and I need a break. I have very little vacation left so I made the executive decision to stay put today. Tomorrow we will be running all over the place!! Happy Sunday!
