CJ a.k.a Chad

This was just too cute not to document. As most of you know CJ’s full name is Chad Kevin Lindsay Jr. There is another little boy CJ’s age also named CJ, this has proven to be a little confusing in the past when they have been in the same class. He would be CJ L. and the other little boy was CJ P. The last time they were in the same class was pre-school, this year they are in the same class again and his teacher was asking him how they would know which one she was talking to and asked if he wanted to be CJ L. He thought about it for a min. and then decided he wanted to be Chad. She told me that night at parent night what he had decided and said she asked him 3xs if he was sure he wanted to be Chad. He assured her he did and so he has been Chad at school this year. It still throws me off a little when one of his teachers or classmates refer to him as Chad or when he brings his papers home and it says Chad at the top. Too funny, he told me he would be CJ next year if CJ P. wasn’t in his class.

Carissa's 1st Day(s)

Carissa had her 1st day of dance lessons on Wed. and she was so excited to get all dressed up to go dance:) She is our little dancing queen and loves to shake her little bootie any time she gets the chance. She loved that there were mirrors covering the walls and she could watch herself twirling and dancing the whole time.

Today was Carissa's first day of pre-school. She has been so excited and very anxious since the boys started a couple weeks ago. She looked so big in her new school clothes with her little back pack. Chad came home from work to see her off and brought a surprise, a Hannah Montana notebook, she was pretty excited! When she got to school she found where she was to hang up her back pack and then she found her buddy Braxton and was all set. She had such a fun day and can't wait to go back Monday:) Three in school, wow;)

Labor Day Weekend Fun

The kids were pretty excited to find a flag in the front yard this morning, they recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang The Star Spangled Banner, it was pretty cute:)

We had such a busy, fun weekend. My cousin Jessie and her hubby Aaron met us Friday night at Tyler’s football game (which they won, yay Tyler!) Then the next morning we headed out to the overlook, from there went on to the wild horse range to see if we could find any Big Horn Sheep and Wild sheep, but we found a few horses cooling off in the shade. We ended up at horseshoe bend to let the kids swim and cool off and play for a while. We then headed home to get ready to go to the mountain, we spent Sat. evening at 5 Springs and roasted hotdogs and made s’mores:) We hung out with Chad’s family Sunday night for dinner, Tammy and the kids were in town for the weekend so it was fun to see them. CJ has had a lose tooth for a couple weeks, his first, it has been hanging by a thread and it literally fell out of his mouth last night while he was sleeping. Luckily he found it this morning, so we put it in a safe place to save it for the tooth fairy tonight. He is hoping for $100 dollar bill to help towards his computer fund, but ah hopfully he will settle for a $1 bill.
