Everyday after school we talk about his day; what he liked best, what he learned, who he played with and of course the dreaded color of the day. Here is one of our conversations:
Mom: "Cameron how was school today?"
M: "Did you stay on green?"
C: "NO, I moved to red" (sad look on face)
M: "What happened?"
C: "I don't know"
M: "Cameron, come on you know what happened"
C: "I don't remember"
M: "I need you to remember...its important"
C: "I don't know...I'm not talking anymore" (he begins to get a little frustrated)
right in the middle of our conversation the phone rings and the caller ID reads FW school district. As I'm talking to the teacher you can tell Cameron figures out (you should of seen his face) who is on the phone and what they are telling me.
M: "Cameron did you punch someone today?"
C: "Yes, he kept touching me...I told him to stop but he would not listen!!!"
I love teachable moments...Cameron came home the next day and let me know they are now friends.

I found this video (see below) and am so grateful that tobacco companies are not allowed to promote their products on the TV, radio, and cable anymore!!!

When Cameron went and ordered his cake here is how the conversation went:
Baker: Hi, how can I help you
Cameron: I want a spider man cake
Baker: Chocolate or Vanilla?
Baker: Do you want a filling?
Cameron: Just plain chocolate with lots and lots of cream
Cameron loves cream (cream=frosting). He does not eat cake only licks off all the cream. He is made for the corner pieces!
Cameron got some very cool toys
Garrett: 100 piece army set (fan favorite), Caleb: mot-control airplane, Wells girls: Lego starwars x-box game, Ricky: mot-control 4-wheeler and a Dark Knight action figure.
My mom, Gary and Vicki were all at the Husky/BYU game...I was grateful and delighted that Steve, Jamie and Keith were able to be here...during the party this is what my two brothers were doing. I guess I should of sent the kids into watch them!

This morning after Coco Puffs and a small argument about doing his hair we headed out to wait for the bus...and wait...and wait...and wait! Just a few kinks--school starts at 8:51 and the bus arrived at 8:50. My mom is glad I don't work this week so I can work out all the kinks for her.
Okay, yes I'm one of those geeky moms who followed her kid to school and then snapped a picture. We might have laws that say no texting while driving or you must use a hands free device but there are NO laws about picturing taking.
Cameron went right in hung up his backpack and found his seat.
