Busy and Toothless

Man, how time has flown since my last post. We have been super busy, with homeschooling Connor, Carson's speech, Connor's Science class, 3 out of 5 having the flu, and just the everyday life I have neglected my blog. Here is a catch up from the past month or so. Connor has lost his bottom two teeth-within a few weeks of each other. He was super excited about this because all of his friends had been toothless for months, so he was now in the "club". Homeschooling has been going well with Connor, he is reading quite well now and is excellent in Math. On his own he has been learning the states and where they are on the map just from watching basketball and then pulling out his map and asking me where the team was from. He is very eager to learn and is a great student - most days! Carson, well let's just say he has been being Carson. He has started this new thing of saying what he wants to whom he wants with no filter involved! Last week, he told some random man that boys weren't supposed to have long hair and he needed a haircut, a woman who was missing some teeth was told by my sweet Carson that she had some "loosed" teeth, and then while walking by a large woman he stated very loudly that she was BIG!! Oh my, this child! We have spoken with him about saying things to others that may hurt their feelings but how do you address the man with the long hair or the woman with the missing teeth? SHEESH!! On to Colton, this child has the vocabulary of a 5 year old. He says the cutest things all the time. One of our favorites is when we tell him not to do something he replies back "I not Mama/Daddy"! Eat him up!! We took him back to his GI dr last week and he was pleased with his weight gain and told us not to worry about him not eating because obviously the shakes were enough to make him gain weight. He still thinks he has Crohn's but some of his symptoms contradict each other so he is still not 100% sure. So for now he is still taking his daily meds and we are going on with our life.
Last night Kevin and I were blessed with hanging out with some of our out of town friends from Texas. They just adopted their 6th child/girl and we could not be more happy for them. They are such an inspiration to us and are great role models as Godly parents and as homeschool parents. So in a nutshell that is what has been going on with the Barnett crew and hopefully it won't be too long before I blog again, but if it is just know I am at home with 3 boys and quite busy! :)
