My 7 Year Old

I wanted to post this yesterday, but ran out of time. There just aren't enough hours in the day.

All about Carson at 7 years old!

Carson is very tall for his age. He is at least 2 inches taller than the next tallest student in his grade. I asked him once if he was the tallest person in his class he thought about it and then answered "No, Miss Carter (his teacher) is taller than me"

He loves telling jokes and knock knock jokes. Some are funny, most aren't!

His favorite activity at home is playing games. He loves Monopoly, Life, card games like Uno and Old Maid.

He loves to read and is very good at it. His favorite books are the Magic Treehouse series. Books about the earth, Volcanos, the Human Body (he loves learning how the body works) We also just finished James and the Giant Peach and he really enjoyed that.

He is a fast runner. I really think that is going to be Carson's "sport" He can outrun anybody. Even Cam has to seriously try to stay the same pace as our little Dash.

He loves school and he loves his teacher. I can't say enough good things about the ALA program and his teacher. He has really changed this year and loved school.

He is a great big brother. He does like to pester Hannah but really he does love her so very much.

He is so friendly. He can start a conversation with anybody and he makes friends easily.

He loves primary. He always wants to be called on and always wants to participate. He suprises me with all he knows sometimes. Recently he repeated the story of Lazarus-and I was shocked. He really is listening and taking it all in!

Girls don't have "cooties" yet and he has quite a few "girlfriends." Just ask him about them and he will say "Oh I have tons of them"

He loves playing outside and going on hikes. He loves to explore new things.

He is fascinated with all thigs science. He loves to do experiments and we have concocted quite a few interesting things in the kitchen.

He loves to stay up late and will try any excuse to stay up just a minute longer.

He has an uncontrolable appetite. I don't know how we are going to keep this kid fed! He eats as much as Cam.

He is "Mr. Question" he always wants to know how something works, why something happened, what I am talking on the phone about, and on and on. Questions, questions all day long.

He is very loving and writes cute little love notes for his family and friends. At his birthday party he wrote everyone notes that said "You are owes (always) loved"

This list could go on forver, we love our boy. He is perfect. We always thank our Heavenly Father for sending him to us! I am so proud to be his mom.
