I have been trying to think of something to say but I have been at a loss. I figured I could at least post about Carter. I can always talk about him.
Oh! On Monday night we had Family Home Evening and Josh asked me if I would give a lesson. I said "No." ha! Just Kidding! Of course I would! I picked up the April Ensign and flipped right to an article about journal writing. If any of you have read this article then you might know why I was very pleased. You see, Josh has had some qualms about my blogging. He has taken it all totally wrong. For some reason he thinks I am just online "gossiping" all day(when in fact I average about 15 minutes of blog time daily). I have tried numerous times to reassure him that was not the case. So, when I could show him the box right in the middle of the article that gave suggestions about ways to keep a journal and point right to the word "blogging" I was thrilled!! I also expressed to him that this is the only way in which I have been good at recording things. I have many attempts at journaling in books that have all failed miserably. I expressed to him how much Carter, as well as the two of us, will like to read back over my entries and see how much he has grown. It is a way of preserving feelings and moments that we will one day want to draw from and think back on and if we can't remember them, we better hope we wrote about it somewhere! I pleaded my case with him and he got a better understanding and now approves. Though, I better not be doing it while he is home;) He thinks he deserves my undivided attention or something. I guess that makes two because Carter is jumping up and down if front of me and waving stuff around and saying "Come On Mommy!" I swear...it is just 15 minutes!!
In other news. Carter and I were walking around ISU today and he was looking at me with my hand in my pocket. He then found his little pants pockets and put his tiny little hands in them and walked around like that for most of the time. It was probably one of the cutest things I have ever seen. He got a bunch of admirers oogling over him and he said "Hi" to everyone he passed. Funny thing is...most college students don't know how to react to a simple, innocent "hi" They all seemed to be caught a little of guard. Maybe there should be a person assigned to walk around campus all day saying "hi" to people so that we don't have to encounter anymore un-comfortablenesses...sheesh! Come on people!
