Tuesdays from now on

A friend I have met through story time at the library and am involved in a play group with needed to have chile care for her boys one day a week. So I am now watching them on Tuesdays. She just works one day a week and then on weekends. So even though I am doing daycare again, it is just one day a week. We have had a busy day, but it has been good! We walked to the park earlier today, that was an adventure let me tell you. No one wanted to walk so all three boys rode in the wagon!! They made it work!! We made it to the park and had a fun time. But I am sure we were a sight to be seen while walking!! And yes Judson is in his underwear in the top picture, it is just easier and faster! Potty training is going well, but of course we still have a ways to go! :)

Stay at Home Mom

Feeding the goats
Ever since moving here and being able to be a full time stay at home mom I have realized how much I love it and how blessed I am that Nate works so hard so that I can stay at home. But last week I was really reminded of what a blessing it is to be home with Judson!! Oh there are moments or days that I think that going to work might be easier. But I would not give this up for anything!! Our week last week consisted of playgroup on Monday, park with friends on Tuesday, the zoo with friends on Wednesday, library time and feeding ducks on Thursday and then park play and home time on Friday. It was such an amazing and fun filled week. I was so glad that I was able to be there with Judson for all of it!! I am just so blessed!! Here are more pictures of our adventure to the zoo.

Sitting with his friend Solon in an egg in the play area

He was very much on the move any time I let him out of his stroller, and did not want to stay still for a picture with the tiger

All the boys playing in a jeep

Judson got a turn in it all by himself, he thought that was pretty great

More pictures of the boys climbing around where the jeep was

eI am so blessed to be this little boys Mama!!! I know that number 2 will change things, but I know it will be wonderful and just that much more fun!!

Potty Training???

Well...we are going to start potty training! Judson is really interested and is seaming ready. So today we went out and bought underwear!! He was pretty excited and picked out everything himself. I got three pair that are more absorbent and seven Cars kind. I hope that they get him excited! :) I also did find plastic pants and Target so I think those will be helpful while starting the process. I am thinking that I will tackle this project next week. I know I should just start now, but we have some things going on this week that I would like to not miss out on and know he will not be ready to be out and busy and successful! So next week it is!! I will keep you updated on how it is all going!! I hope that it either goes great or we find out quickly that he just is not ready, and need to wait awhile. :) Whatever happens it will be an adventure!
I couldn't get the top picture to flip. Aren't these little undies just so cute!! I know he is going to be so cute once he is in them too!!

Garage Sale finds!!

Friday and Saturday 15 of us from the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group that I am apart of did a garage sale. It was crazy, I mean CRAZY how much stuff there was! It was such a great sale though because there was something for everyone! As a group we made around $3000! I am was so pumped because I made almost $100 just on the random things that I had taken!!
Garage sales can be so much work, but this one was so great because we just worked shifts and helped each other out so much. And of course I had to buy some things while I was there. But I feel that I got some great deals. I got a Little People Ark with some of the figures, a tub of play tools and a bed rail. Judson LOVES the tools and has had then dumped all over the house since I gave them to him!! Also the bed rail will be great once we move him into his new room and new bed!! I am excited for garage sales to start!! There are always such great deals to find!!
