Just a quick story

So today we were in Sunday School when from the back of the room I hear. . . "Mommy, I poopie!" Tyson has a poopie and thought he would share this with everyone in the class as he is running up the isle to me. And of course we are sitting in the front because we were late as usual. It was great. We were in a great discussion about being truly converted to Chirst when you hear this cute little voice saying that he is poopie. I don't think my face could have been any redder. I was already red from being hot, so now it is really red. It was pretty funny. At least Tyson was in a huge hurry to go back to nursery instead of crying to go back. He finally love nursery and enjoys being there. It only took him 5 months!

We had a great 4th of July. We went to see the balloons in Provo and had a great time. I could not believe the amount of people there. After the balloons we decided to get some breakfast and head over to find a spot for the parade. It was 7:30 and there were a ton of people.

We walked like three to four blocks before we found a spot and even then it was sooo crowded!! It was a great time and a great parade. I am glad we found some shade because I thought I was going to die with the heat. I don't do well in the heat these days but the kids had fun and were troopers through it all. Then we went to the colonial days and it was really cool. It was like a little touch of home with all the history. The only thing that would have made the day any better were if it were like 20 degrees cooler!!!

Tyson loves to listen to music so each time the bands came by he would move his head and have a blast. He was a great waver too. He waves as the floats go by and thinks he is the coolest for doing it. It is so cute!

A week of amazing accomplishments

So for starters, I watched my cousin's children while they moved and we had a great sleepover! All the children slept through the night. It was great. We had so much fun we cannot wait to do it again!

Tyson has had some big accomplishments also. Ever since Tyson started in nursery in February, it is a struggle to get him to be happy and not cry for mom. Then for the last two Sundays Tyson has actually started running to go to nursery. It was such a great sight that Stan and I could not believe it. What made the sudden change? I don't know and I am not going to question it. I am just glad the it has finally happened, and before the baby came.

The other big step in Tyson's life is bed time without the binki!!! Saturday, Tyson was being Tyson and not listening to us at bed time. So we started to reason with him which actually works, especially when the binki is involved. So we told him he had to do as we asked or there would be no binki for bed. He just kept on doing what he was doing and then when we put him in bed he realized that there was no binki. He cried for maybe ten minutes before he went to sleep and slept the whole night. So for nap time on Sunday we decided to see if he would go down without it again. He did!! Tyson still asks for it but he only cries for 10 minutes and then he is asleep. I think we may have broken the habit.
