Caden's logic

Caden saw the sign "No shoes, no shirt, no service".

Caden: What's that sign mean?
Scott: It means they don't want people coming into the the restaurant without shoes or shirts.
Caden: Fine. So I can go in without my pants on.

Awesome. Love him!

A little update

We have had a busy summer. The kids have done a one week sleep over camp which they enjoyed, as well as several little afternoon local ones. Keali is loving the gymnastics ones, and Caden has done a computer programming one and an "own your own business"one. He really enjoyed that. The C & K Dog Walks business has been booming. Due to unfortunate circumstances for one of our friends, they scored their first dog sitting assignment last week. Caden believed that $5 per day for dogsitting was the appropriate charge, so watching him count the money was so fun. They were owed $25, but they were paid $30. They bounced around and screamed in excitement about their tip. It was brilliant!

Scott and I snuck off to Ft Lauderdale, Florida, for Mom's 60th birthday. It was fun seeing the family there and we all had a really good time. The kids stayed with a super cool babysitter who has an eight year old little brother. She didn't take any flack from Caden which was great for the kids. We are sad she is off to college next month. )-:

Our other big focus is gearing up for Caden starting homeschool next month. We are nervous (by "we", I mean "me") and excited. We feel like we have a pretty good idea of how it is going to look, but it may all be wishful thinking. It seems (and is) such a responsibility to take control of his schooling, but he is insatiable when it comes to learning, so I expect he will drive a fair amount of it.

And I can't forget CC Nada Panda Bear! This crazy new addition to the family keeps us all on our toes. Or off of them. She likes to attack feet. Nothing is off limits from her relentless stalking and attacking. Even the toilet paper is victimized daily.

So many fun things in our little world helps to keep me sane from the craziness around us. We are a fortunate little family of four. We remind ourselves and our kids of that daily. <3
