July 20

This is the cloud that James told me he wants "for a collection". He was VERY excited and kept telling me, "That's it, Mommy! That's it! Great idea!". He also told me it was a dinosaur. Do you see it?

What's James doing NOW?!

We took James from his bed because of tornado warnings. We are taking the better safer than sorry approach! We are laying in the basement hallway, waiting for the all clear.

El Lago (the Lake)

I haven't blogged for a while, besides my short posts from my iphone (which is very cool that I can do it "on the go"). I didn't describe my trip to the Lake with James late last month. It was a pretty hot day so we drove over to the new beach. I was prepared with his sand toys, his golf clubs, his towel and change of clothes, a snack and water, everything I could think of. I slathered him in sunscreen and watched as the crowds arrived. That beach gets BUSY. We were there pretty early, like at 10:30am, and it was already really hot.
We drove but it is still quite a distance from the parking lot to the beach so I loaded James up in the wagon.



At first James only wanted to golf on the sand. The sand was really super hot so he did give up and ask to go in the water.



Here's an early shot of the beach at like 10:45. It got way busier as the morning turned to afternoon.



I ended up putting my camera down and enjoying the day with James. We played and played. We waded in the water, he watched the older kids "swim", and we did end up golfing somore more.

There is always a public bathroom poop and James didn't disappoint me this day. It was a little more trouble than usual juggling the wet clothing and the excited boy. He loves the poops lately!

What's James doing NOW?

We are playing school! Worksheets that help with reasoning and critical thinking :)

July 1

James earned his way to Chuck E Cheese today (potty chart). Darn those commercials for getting the idea in his head. It was mostly fun but it was a whirlwind. Now how to tell him we don't get CEC every time we have a great potty day??

What's James doing NOW?

He is earning his way to Chuck E Cheese, his reward for today.


Happy faces are successful potty visits, those make us happy.

Sad faces are having accidents, or being wet. Those make us feel sad and icky.
