Note from Angela

Summer is here and I was committed to make it feel like something special.  C and I have made a point to do something fun after camp and in the evenings.  We’ve been pretty happy with our dillagence and follow-through.

Trav planned for the Jones and Cheney siblings to do the Rock ’n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon.  I couldn’t run it but I did walk it — and jogged a little bit — and finished in just under 3 hours.  I cried as I crossed the finish line . . . I couldn’t believe I did it!  I owe a big thanks to Travis for pushing me to do it.  

Notes From Carter

I didn’t think that I would like Camp Gulls; the last 2 years have not been very fun.  This summer at Camp Gulls has been GREAT.  We are having a lot of fun and I really like being there.

I really like not being in school and not having homework.   

Notes & Quotes that Mommy caught

June 9, 2016

First day of summer break . . .

Carter was given the ultimate day off and a complete zigzag day (a day where we stray from the regular routine).

C was allowed to stay in his PJ's, watch as many movies as he wanted and play on the iPad as much as he wanted.

Part way through the morning he asked if part of the zigzag day could be a trip to get donuts . . . I thought "Why not!"

C: "If on a zigzag day you don't go to Krispy Kreme you are messin' up.  If your mom won't take you to Krispy Kreme then she is messin' up.  I'm lucky 'cause my mom isn't messin' up!

While driving home from dinner we were on Clairemont Mesa Blvd and passed The Gentleman's Club.

C:Mom, what's The Gentleman's Club?

M: Well...Its a place that has half-naked women inside and people come to see them.

C: Oh, I thought it was a place where you'd take classes to be a gentleman.

M: Nope. Kind of the opposite. 

Note from Mommy to Carter

When we put our minds to it we can both get our needs met.  I am glad that you tell me what you want / need and I am very happy that you are learning to be patient when you have to wait.
