Scary future?

Well today we found out that Coventry got bought by Aetna.  I sure hope that Paul does not lose his job.

On 8/4/12, I went to a Saturday Summer Night at the Desert Museum.  I got there around 5 to walk around and take pictures.  I ate dinner there and then attended their photo class Hot Techniques for Cool Photos. 

8/6/12 was Nathan's first day of his 2 year old Parent's Day Out class.  He was well behaved and did great with potty training.  He has done great ever since, too.  We have no pushing complaints this year so that is good. 

I took Nathan to Reid Park Zoo in 8/9/12.  I also found out that day that my rhino picture I took at the zoo and entered in the Jones Photo "Big" Summer  competition won an honorable mention.

I drove up to the Phoenix Zoo on 8/18/12.  I had not been to that zoo for awhile and it was supposed to be a little cooler that day, but it was still hot!

Long week

8/1, I took Nathan to the zoo.

Yesterday, we met Nathan's new teacher and Nathan got to see his new classroom.  He had fun with some of the other kids and he was drawn to the train table in the room.  His teacher seems nice.  I really liked Ms. Sally, though, so I hope the new teacher is as good. 

I took Nathan to the Childrens Museum today.  I resisted the urge to take pictures which actually allowed me to control him better.  He had a lot of fun...until I told him we had to go.  It was lunch time and I knew he was getting tired, too.  He even fell asleep in the car just as we got to the musuem.  He fell asleep again on the way home.  I got him to eat lunch and then we took a nap.  The rest of the day was rather difficult.  I have been seriously potty training him the last couple of days with real big boy underwear.  He did well enough going pee pee and poopy on the potty most of the time with some accidents here and there.  This afternoon, though, he had 4 pee pee accidents in a row so I decided to put him back in a pullup again and give up for the day.  I don't know how the weekend will go and Monday he starts back up at school.  I guess I will put him in a pullup that day and see how he does with the new teacher and new class.
