Monkey Leashes

I know we have all seen these Monkey Leashes for kids. I always think how ridiculous, I am never going to get that for my kids, they can learn to just stay by me. Well Spencer is going to be the kid that you see wearing on of these.
Story: Usually if I have to shower I either bring Spencer with me and lock him in my room or I shower while he is sleeping. Our shower is having to be re-cocked and so I have to shower down stairs or in the kids bathroom. I chose downstairs. This morning I had to get ready early so I get in the shower and leave Spencer out of the bathroom. I didn't want him to unwind the toilet paper or flush the toilet a million times. Half way into my shower I think to myself. Ugh, I should have locked the front door, because as of a week ago Spencer can open the front door and go outside and he loves going out there.  About 3 minutes later I hear a knock at the bathroom door. It was a grown up knock. Weird. So I say "HELLO?" and I here "Lesley" I turn off the water so I could hear better and ask "Who is there?" It was my friend April that lives a couple blocks away. She begins to tell me that she was taking her kids to preschool and saw Spencer outside, running down the street. AHHHHH!!! I was almost done so I hurry and rinse off and get out as fast as I can. She had to leave and had Carter lock the door behind her. I was so freaked out. I can't believe that happened and so so thankful that April happened to be there to bring him back. And that is why I will probably have to get one of these ridiculous Money Leashes.

Mother of the Year Award goes to me this year for sure!

Out in the Yard

One of the evenings it cooled off enough to send the boys outside to our lovely backyard. They had fun playing with the little tikes car.

  Poor Carter couldn't fit inside anymore so he was designated pusher.
 Spencer loves being outside getting dirty. Carter on the other hand loves to be outside but hates to get dirty.

On a side note, I am glad I sent them out there because Dave said he was more anxious to get landscaping in the backyard so they could play out there more. :)

Little Scholars Preschool

Carter started Preschool today. This is his last year. He is such a handsome boy and so smart. He loves to learn. He already can count up to 100 and a little beyond. He can also recognize the numbers 1-100, He knows the alphabet and can recognize the upper and lower case letters. He still needs practicing on writing a few of them. He knows all the shapes even ones like crescent, and octagon. 
 Here Carter is with the Preschool teachers, Mrs Kristin, Mrs Lisa, and Mrs Bianne. He is excited he says his teachers are nice and he likes them.
