My husband and I were called (email me if you get confused by my LDS terminology, I don't mind explaining) to teach the Valiant 12 boys. Yeah we get to teach preteen boys. I am teaching the lessons and my husband is covering the scouting aspect of it. He gets that duty since he is a whole lot more familiar with scouting being that he is an Eagle Scout. The boys are pretty nice and not as rowdy as I had feared they would be. They managed to answer most of the questions I asked even though they tried to get all tangential on me. I am used to that since when I was teaching Young Women that was a favorite ploy of theirs.
Evan is grossly overusing the potty card to get out of things he does not want to do. I am getting very tempted to just put him on a potty schedule and not deviate from that. I have been frequently asking him if he needs to go potty and now need is a part of his vocabulary. He "needs" to go outside right now. He "needs" to have a cookie. He "needs" go into the blue room (which is in the final stages of being painted and is currently off limits to small children).
Here is some eye candy for my relatives that read my blog.
The boys in the rain forest exhibit at the zoo. They were so authentic that there was a cockroach running around. The boys of course loved it. I was freaking out.

A goose hoping for some food. The geese at the petting part of the zoo are very cheeky and grabby. We never feed them for fear of getting nipped.
