Back to school!

Carson had his first day back to school a few weeks ago. He is officially a kindergartner! My sweet baby boy is growing up way to fast.

He has started school at a new school. Its actually the school that I attended. It's so nice having him at Tattnall. So far, the school year is off to a wonderful start. I can't wait to see what this school year has in store for him. This year he will start math & reading & he is hopeful about the upcoming school year. He is super excited about all of the outside class room activities (science lab, computer lab, music, art, library & P.E. classes). His teachers are doing a wonderful job of documenting the school year for us. They have created a shutterfly webpage and are regularly posting pictures of their day to day activities.

Cooking with Carson

My little Carson loves to help in the kitchen, so naturally, we got him his first cookbook! We purchased the Paula Deen's My First Cookbook and we love it.

The recipes are super simple and have great illustrations for children. So far we have made the Fruit Kabobs and M&M Cookie Pops.

Carson had an amazing time gathering all of the ingredients and setting up an assembly line to help him complete the recipe! I just love cooking w/ Carson and look forward to cooking every recipe in this book with him!

Happy 4th of July!

We have a had a great time celebrating the 4th of July with all of our family! We started off our celebrations last weekend for an early 4th get together for all of our distant family members that we never get to visit with. I didn't get a lot of pictures of this event just a few cute ones of Carson & Cooper enjoying the outdoors.

We followed up the celebration by a fun day at Lane Packing a local Peach Orchard/farm. Carson had a blast on the water slide and Carson had a blast playing w/ his Nana.

On Sunday we went to Church & then had a lunch with Brian's family followed by an afternoon at the pool!

Then we headed over to Bass Pro Shop for their summer camp. Carson had a great time shooting the bow & arrow and fishing.

We had a wonderful 4th and had some much needed family time. Carson has been visiting with other family members this month so it was nice to have him back at home! Now it's time for us to get ready for the beach!!!!

Carson's Summer & Dinner Idea

My oldest son, Carson has been a little traveler this summer. He has hardly been at home and I have missed him so much! He is off again tomorrow to spend the week with his cousin at their grandparents house. Good thing they live only 30 mins north of us. I don't think I can handle another week of not seeing my sweet little man! Carson is really enjoying his summer travels and we have an upcoming beach trip to look forward to, but I must admit I miss the every day routine during the school year. This year Carson will be entering K5 in a new school and we are excited about what is in store for us this year.

While Carson is away, Brian & I are trying out new recipes of things Carson would not typically eat. Here is the Cheesy Taco Mac that we had last week. We had this with a salad and it was super yummy! I love this blog. She has some of the best recipes. Now the hard thing is, what are we having this week?
