Show Mommy What You Did...

So. My lovely son was supposed to be finding his pirate hat in his bedroom. He was being really nice and quiet and I figured he was actually looking for it, so I let him be. About five minutes after he went upstairs he came down with this:

He was also covered with the white stuff. All over his head and his shirt and a trail of it coming down the stairs. I didn't get a pic of that, I was just trying to get it off him. So I said to him "Show mommy what you did". He took my hand and led me upstairs to his room where I found this:

It smelled bad. It was just baby powder, but that much really stinks. Took an hour of me vacuuming and then Geoff having to empty the toy box and wiping everything down and it still stinks up there...I love my son:)
On a completely un-related note.....I have flowers!Lots of them. The marigolds that I got for Easter popped up while I was in Virginia and now look beautiful!!!!They came from seeds and I planted them in May and the came up the end of July. There was a lot of green before that, but no color. Now there's lots of color:)I really like the big yellow one.

Michael's Zinnia. Aunt Connie sent him Veggie tales seeds and he planted them and does most of the watering.
My Bachelor Buttons didn't turn out well, so no pictures of them.
Mom and Dad are coming for a visit today. We're planning on the fair and lots of other park type stuff. Let's all pray for good weather. Michael is so very
excited about seeing Maw Maw and Paw Paw. He wants to show them all his toys and his "Big House" and his new friends. I guess hes just excited about everything, but so am I. I love having visitors and Mike and Bev are great to have. I love watching them with Michael. Makes me miss Mom a little more, but it's good that he can know at least one set of grandparents!
Haven't heard about the job yet. But keep praying, because it's still a possibility:)

Big Boy Bikes and Other Exciting Events:)

Well, a couple of months ago Michael climed up on a two wheel Princess bicycle (with training wheels) in the store. At that point, we made a mental note to try to find his two wheel bike. Unfortunately, seems like the five dollar bike that i bought at a yard sale last year didn't end up making the trip from Chicago. So, Michael didn't have a two wheeler.
Then, right after getting home from Virginia, a 14 inch little boys bike came up on freecycle and we snatched it up. Geoff added some training wheels and Michael put on his helmet and was off in a hurry. It was love at first ride:)
First picture on the big boy bike:)
Daddy got a little thirsty after the first ride. Michael already had him at a fast paced jog. He's a little speed demon!
We also went to a new park! It's a park right on Lake Onondaga and in a few of the pictures below, you can see the lake in the background.
What you can't see too well in this picture is that those blocks all move independently of eachother and they have a pretty steep slope. I didn't think he would be able to do this. He showed me, and he did it pretty quick:)
Another ladder type thing that moves. This was taller than Geoff. You see where Michael is.
He's got one huge grape in each cheek. He was trying to put the carrot in without chewing the grapes. Didn't work. See the lake in the back?
I just love these two pictures. He's just having such a good time!
We also went to our first Syracuse Chiefs baseball game. Michael didn't last the whole time and wanted to walk around the stands the whole time, but I think we all had a good time:)

Last, but not least......I may have a job lead. A work from home personal assistant type job, but a job!!!!Keep praying!!!
