I decided I'd do a life lately post to recap what has been going on since my last post.
I should stop here and just write: school, baseball, dance, Elmer, Chad traveling.... and repeat! That is basically it.
On Friday, May 1st, we headed to Knoxville right after school for a UT Baseball game. This wasn't ANY UT baseball game- Carson got to go out on the field with the players during player introductions and the National Anthem. It was a cool experience for him. He got to do this because he attended summer camp last summer and they asked campers to come back. I love this first picture of him. He's my boy!!!
We met up with a family from the baseball team- we literally walked right up to them. We didn't know they were going to be there so we spent part of the day with them riding rides. It was a great chance to get to know another family on our team a little better. I can honestly say that I really like all the families on our team. There is no drama (at least none that we know of), everyone gets along, and they are great people to spend weekends with!
We got in the car, and this happened. I guess TCAP and a weekend away wore him out. He can sleep in the car like no one's business. Another trait he gets from his Mama.
We didn't get a traditional Mother's Day picture since said phone wasn't working properly and Chad isn't the type of guy that does that kind of thing. We spent the day with our moms and ended the day with a bike ride on the Greenbelt. My Mother's Day gift was a bicycle. I didn't think I would want one but since everyone loves riding their bikes, I might as well join in on the fun! We are taking our bikes to the beach. I am excited about that.
The other big event is that Elmer has been escaping a lot lately. We have got to get him some training. The underground fence isn't working for him. He just blows right through it. Once he gets out, he will not come to us when called so we have just returned home after searching for him in hopes that he comes back. The longest he has stayed gone is a couple of hours. We have an appointment with a dog trainer in June that will do an evaluation on him and basically write an IEP and behavior plan for him. He is the cutest dog but he is giving us a run for our money! He spends a lot of time in his crate, which we don't like to do, but it is one of two places he will stay. He likes his dog lot too and hasn't tried to get out of there but he will not go in the doghouse if it rains and he hates to get wet. He isn't the smartest!
