POTTY TRAINING!
We have come to desperate measures. Jensen turned three in May. He knows when he needs to go to the bathroom but is only occasionally interested in sitting on the potty. I have introduced "PROJECT SHAKE DOWN" I have stripped Jensen of all his clothes and he is running around naked until he gets the hang of this potty thing. It is actually going quite well and he is going on the potty a large majority of the time. YEAH JJ!

So I think its really cute how he does all of his normal activities completely naked. As it is inappropriate to post pictures of my naked 3 year old I got this as he was playing with his apron Mandy gave him. He was marveling at how his toys shook. I marveled too:)




Here is the progress of our garden. This was a couple of weeks ago.


And this is now. We ate a little salad from our lettuce the other night I'm excited to eat the fruit from the rest of the plants.


This is a fun picture of a fun FHE activity Dave made up. It's called Noah's Ark. The kids have fun"gathering the animals" and putting them in the boat. You just might want to have as many boats as you have children. Or else the family fun turns into family feud.

What a great garden! Good luck with the potty training. Kevin and I just moved back to Highlands Ranch, so we should get together sometime soon.

I think I have to try to naked thing. Isaac will be three in September, and I am getting desperate! Oh, boys are silly.
Is there a website to tell you how to do the naked potty training?

we do the naked potty trained 'cept they still wear a shirt and with my girls they wear a dress it still works. I was going to tell you that I recieved a pattern in the mail for a carseat cover to make our old used carseats look cute and new but it looks way to hard for me I wish you were here and we would make it together it is for an infant or toddler seat i was going to cover our toddler seat but I am not that good with sewing yet. if ya come this way i'll give ya a copy if you want it.

Danica, the naked thing sounds great except when you said it worked most of the time. All's it takes is one of those "not working times" to ruin a good day or a nice couch. Good luck.

Hmm interesting. I'm glad it is working. The apron is a good idea.
