Its official! We are done with diapers! For the 1st time in 8 years! I feel the need to celebrate. Only problem is Ben still hates wearing any clothes now. He continues to strip himself as soon as I get him dressed and runs around naked all day long. Its driving me crazy. But on the bright side- its a little less laundry to wash and fold and put away. The missionaries came over for a little missionary correlation meeting and my little Bennie boy was streaking through the house. I felt my face turn red as I apologized for his nudity.  What to do with that kid.
James was asked to give a talk in Primary last week, and I had a short little poem for him to recite, but as soon as it was his turn, he froze. As soon as he was done with church he told me he was so proud of himself. I'm trying to figure that out. Is he proud that he got out of giving his talk cuz he refused to do so? Oh the mind of that child.
So the citys parks and rec have been having registration for soccer and baseball and a bunch of other little kid sports and classes. I thought Toast might actually like to do it this year- but when I asked him he said he has no interest . Daniel was quite happy about that cuz it means we dont have to spend our  Saturdays watching a bunch of kids trying to kick a ball from one end of the field to the other. And I wonder why my boys have no interest in sports. I am finally getting that it stems from their daddy's bad attitude.
Kylie started back up with piano. She stopped playing once her previous teacher moved and we searched high and low and finally found a teacher with an opening. Its all coming back to her rather quickly and that makes me happy. I love watching her develop her talents.
Daniel has been working long hours (12-14 hour days)- which drives me bonkers cuz I dont like doing the single mom thing all day/week long, but his company has been moving into another office and he has had to be there for all the different hookups and setups and all the moving and organizing. He's rather excited about the little move cuz its gonna save them a ton on rent each month. So I guess it will be worth it. Although if I have to deal with the kiddies all by myself for much longer we might all be headed to the asylum for a very long time.

Daniel would dislike our fall schedule--one soccer game on Fridays and two on Saturdays! Gotta admit that sometimes I wish my kids didn't have the interest.

Congrats on the no diapers! I enjoyed that for about 6 weeks. . . someday. . .

Welcome to life sans diaper bags!

Just wait until the weather gets colder- he'll put some britches on.

Cute picture- love those puppy dog eyes!

That is so exciting to be all potty trained! Congratulations. Think of the money you'll save and not just on diapers but apparently laundry detergent as well.

Hooray for no diaper!

You have to be careful when you celebrate the "no diaper" thing. As soon as you start getting really used to it, you need them again!

I loved that "talk" in Primary! You are the cutest mom. I was glad I was behind the piano that day so I could witness the whole thing.
