Soccer and sleep.

Didn't you know that we play soccer in the baseball diamonds here in Idaho? :) Today was Carter's first ever sports practice. He is taking a Pee-Wee Soccer class through the city. He was SOOO excited to go tonight and when we got there he jumped out of the truck and said at the top of his voice, "I'm ready to play some soccer ball!" His classes are parental participation classes which I didn't find out about until I got there. (Uh, thanks. I am wearing flip flops and have all 4 kids with me, but no matter. ) Thankfully Jarom showed up shortly and took over for me.


And yes......drum roll please.....that is Carter SLEEPING in HIS bed! I have no idea what has triggered it, but every night this week he has gone to bed by himself in his own bed. No fighting, whining, or anything. He's only stayed in his bed all night once, but he has NEVER just gone to bed on his own before. So I think we may be heading in the right direction (again). And this time the sticker chart is A LOT longer, and the reward isn't a living creature. (Although I do love Mimzy.)

How fun! What a little boy. I hope he enjoys soccer. He's so cute. Congratulations on the bed, too. That must mean you'll have room in your bed for another child!!

Sorry I didn't reply sooner. I've been having trouble with my password. Your kids are adorable! I asked Jen how you were a couple months ago and she sent me your blog address. I sat down and read the whole thing in one night. I love it! I love that it's always updated. Good to hear from you.

Way to go Carter! I'm sure it's exciting to know that eventually you guys will actually get to sleep in your bed by yourselves all night long.

It's so cute that he's so excited about soccer!

Hooray for Carter! Did your mom play a part on this one while you were in Hawaii?
