In his 3 weeks @ MDO he has learned his ABC's, he recognizes A, B, C, 1 & 2. He even surprised me while we were driving down the road with the story of Adam & Eve.
Carter is still a very detailed orientated little guy. He remembers every detail. His teacher told me what a bright little boy he is (which I already knew). He is a complete joy to be around! I treasure every minute with him!

Over Memorial Day we took a quick trip to Taos, NM. It was so nice to get away for a little while. We went hiking up a mountain. Carter loved all the mountains. He didn't realize we were in the mountains when we were up on top of one. We rented a paddle boat and paddled across a lake in Angel Fire. Carter feel asleep as soon as we were out to sea. We had to get off the water early because it was lightening. Even though Chris said we couldn't get struck in a plastic boat, I paddled like there was no tomorrow. I still think we could have been hit. I almost forgot Chris caught a fish on a snoopy fishing rod (well I don't now what character it had on it) but GO CHRIS!
Besides our house being on the market and having to keep it clean we have been busy getting the new house started. They ran into some dirt work issues. Basically we had to change our floor plan up some because neither of us wanted to go up 18 steps to get from the garage to the house. Crazy! So with a little more dirt and a few changes I will only have to carry groceries and Carter up 4-5 steps. Hopefully we won't run into many more big issues.
I have taken so many pictures over the last month but they are gone! Somewhere on our computer are the cutest pics of Carter. As soon as they are found I'll put pictures with my stories.
I almost forgot. Carter is growing up so much. As we were passing the library he noticed the flag. And out of no where he belted out the The Pledge of Allegiance. Word for word he recited the pledge. Apparently he has been paying more attention than I thought. And that as well is lost on this computer.

This past Friday we took Carter to the circus. We all had a great time. The ring is much smaller than both Chris & I remembered but I bet it was huge to Carter.

Fun Facts about the House Finch
- The House Finch originated in Mexico and in the 1940's was turned out in Long Island, NY
- The red color of the male House Finch comes from pigments that it gets in his food during molt.
- The more pigment of food the redder the male.
- Females prefer to mate with the reddest male they can find, perhaps assuring that they get a capable male who can find enough food to feed the little babies.
Kind of weird that I researched my eggs. I just wanted to know what we were in store for.

Introducing the soon to be newest members of our family. Today Grandma (Chris' mom) was showing our house and discovered that in my hanging basket at our front door was a baby bird egg. By the time Carter & I got home there were 2. Yeah! I'm really excited about getting to share this experience with Carter. It's perfect timing since Easter was just a couple of day ago and eggs are on his mind.
And yes we are going to sell our house. So far Chris hasn't put a sign in the yard. I really don't want one there anyways. I'm sad about it. This is not our house but our home. Carter had all of his first here. This is the house we brought him home too. It has great sentimental value to me. I know we will always have our memories but I love my house. The good news is that we are upgrading. Are plans are to build a new, bigger house just up the street. I'm honestly excited about the new house. It will be in a cul de sac, which will be better for Carter to ride his bike. Right now we have a creek behind our house and all of our toys roll into it and are lost forever. So good bye creek.
Stayed tuned to see how are little birdies are doing!!!

I let Carter pick out the colors and off we went playing (actually he played and I picked up toys from the day). As he was playing he looked at me and said I yike that smell. He is a kid after my own heart!
My pictures are out of order but if you look at them backward they are perfect.
