Sparty has Moves!

I'm busy finishing report cards tonight.  But this gave me a good laugh before I started.

Liam and His Pumpkin

Keeping in theme of Dawn is behind schedule- Halloween decorations just came out of the attic today.
 Mom and Dad just remembered a little thing called "The Pumpkin Patch" yesterday....

But before I get to a post about the Pumpkin Patch, here is Liam's annual picure with his pumpkin

Catch Up

I live for the day I am not playing catch up.  (big joke right?!)  But I feel like I only update the blog in catch up mode.
Whoever said teaching was a family friendly profession LIED!  12 hour work days and never getting everything done does not equal family friendly.

But lets talk about Liam's BFF- Jack the Dog
They are exactly(ish) a year apart- as close as you can figure with a rescue dog.  They are probably equally as expensive! 

Jack wins the award for the MOST EXPENSIVE RESCUE DOG EVER!
1. maulled at the dog park
2. hit by a car
3. multiple infections

Our latest adventure with Jack began about a month ago.  Ear infection, eye infection and foot infection.  Yes, foot.  He chews on his paws so bad he has lost his fur.  Numerous x-rays and appointments later, he still chews and limps around.

At a follow up appointment last week, we found out he may have tore his ACL- which requires surgery.

Enjoy your new daily medicine routine!

And we have been having some potty training fun.

Liam has been doing so well!  He lets us know when he has to go pee.  But he still has yet to poop in the potty.

I am really impressed with him.  In the last week we have not been on a schedule.  His sitter was sick Monday and Tuesday, so he went to stay with a friend while Mom and Dad went to work.  Wednesday he went back to Lettie's (his sitter).  Then Grandma and Great Grandma came to visit, so he got to stay home and play with them.  None of these changes have effected his potty training {much}.

I also made an executive decision today with Liam's Halloween Costume.  I made sure to pick one up that Liam can easily use the pottty in.

Thomas the Tank Engine

I know most people probably call him Thomas the Train, but I used to babysit a little boy who very ademently corrected me; he is not a train, he is a tank engine.

Well Thomas was visiting the North Carolina Museum of Transportation the last 2 weekends so we scored some tickets {read: overpaid for some tickets} and took Liam.

His face when he saw the train coming was worth it!

And OH MY LUCKY STARS he got to ride on Thomas!

I feel so often that I am missing out of so much time with Liam while I am at work.  As much as I love staying at home and relaxing on the weekend, nothing is better that cuddling up with Liam on the couch and watching so Pixar, but we love taking him out and making these memories.
And tomorrow Grandma and Great-Grandma come to visit.  He is a busy little guy!

Chances are pretty good you played with legos as a child.  Chances are still pretty good if you have a child they play with legos, or one day will.

LEGO knew what they were doing when they built that company.

The other weekend (I am so behind on updating here) we took Liam to Atlanta to visit Tia Mary and went to Legoland.
