Cub Scouts

Ashton has been so excited to start cub scouts this evening!  He couldn't wait to wear his new uniform!  He is so adorable!

Academically he's really been impressing us with his number/math sense.  He's quite impressive for a 1st grader!

The most colorful vocabulary and another loose tooth bites the dust

Ashton has always been very articulate.  Lately he has used words like "my hypothesis is..." and "sockeyed" salmon....too funny!

Also after months of being wiggly he finally lost his second tooth.  Like his first tooth, he lost it/misplaced it! Oh well, tooth fairy still came, but he didn't seem to care one way or the other!

Another new skill!

Today Ashton surprised me by tying his own shoes!  I had taught him the other day and apparently daddy had been teaching him as well.  Needless to say he was a quick learner!  Yeah Ashton!

It's going to be a good year!

Ashton: "The new pe teacher is really nice, he didn't even yell at me!" LOL

It's going to be a great year!

First day of 1st grade success!

Today was Ashton's first day of school.  He even posed with his back pack for a picture for me!  He reported it was a "great day".  Made a mama's heart happy!  He was especially happy that he had recess time with all his man cub friends!

Ready for 1st grade!

This boy LOVES his bike!

We just got back from our annual Labor Day camping trip!  Ashton was a biking maniac.  He biked from the moment he woke up until it became too dark for him to bike in the evening.  Talk about a happy boy!  His little butt even got a little bike abrasion rash from so much biking:)  He biked so much that he had a total blow out of one of his tires, wheel and all!  At first he thought it awesome since it made a very loud explosion noise, but sadness set in when he realized it meant he couldn't ride his bike anymore:(  Thankfully we had another small one he could ride!

Taking a rest from the biking with some icecream and a hayride with Ms. Kathy

Of course everytime we go camping Ashton makes friends and plays with everyone!  Such a happy boy!  Here's him and Rudy being silly!

Silly boys

Piece of Cake

All summer we have been trying to get Ashton to ride his bike.  We knew he would have no problem at all!  However like most things he has to do everything in his own way and in his own time.  Tonight he got his way.  Daddy pulled out his smaller pre-school  bike after refusing to try the larger bike and took off the training wheels.  He got on the bike and rode it immediately with no problems!!!!!  Piece of Cake!  Like nothing!

Ashton riding his bike!

We have had the most busiest summer I can remember.  In early August we went to Bethany beach with the Best family and some other friends.  I took Ashton's buddy Nathan with us.  Like usual they had a love/hate kind of time.  On the last day Ashton only had his half-sister Arianna to play with.  It was nice to see them playing together!

Bribed them for this picture:)

Last night we just got back from visiting brother Stian and his kids in Connecticut.  As usual Ashton had a great time with his same age nephew Eirik.
