Potty Training and New Opportunities for the Rawson Household

Well the time has come.. We've been practicing for a few months just working on getting on the potty and off the potty and just liking the potty. I am ready for potty training.. Olivia is ready... But I have really no GREAT idea of how all of this works!! So if anyone has any good ideas or knows anyone who could give me a few pointers that would be AWESOME!! Today we got a potty that actually sits on the floor, we've been using the one that sits on the big potty... She really likes the potty that sits on the floor she can take herself to the potty and go! She's went twice this evening, but also pee'd her new dora panties 3-4 times.. yikes. The potty plays really cute music when she pees it's pretty sweet!
It's SO wild she is old enough to start potty training! :( Makes this momma SO sad.

Jeff has now accepted a new job and will start on July 5th. This is a HUGE change for us that comes with lots of changes... 7:30 start time and short Fridays, more money, and I believe a better work environment with people he actually will have things in common with. I think this opportunity will make him MUCH happier, which leads to a happier home.. :) I'm very excited for him and can't wait to share with everyone how he likes it.

As for me I just submitted my application to go "full time" with my current job. I'm "full time contract"now and work with the title one schools with our lower income grant funded programs, this job will allow me to work at two of the south side schools and do my own programming which i think would be AWESOME!! :) I'll be interviewing for this position soon and i'm looking forward to that change during the school year!!

More Details to Come and Pictures of Olivia and her new potty! :)

Hope everyone is having a GREAT summer!!

Been TOO long.. This is just an UPDATE on LIFE...

First of all I have been SUPER busy... I started summer camp and it keeps me very busy throughout the week... I def. look forward to the weekend with my family, but camp has actually been going very well!!
We have been swimming a lot, riding bikes, and just being outside until dark and bed time. Olivia is at such a SUPER fun age where we can actually go out and about and all have a good time together.
This weekend we spent it with Jeff's brother's at the lake.. Such a bummer that it rained on Saturday, but we did get to go out on the boat in the afternoon...
We just hung out, had girl talk, ate smores, boys fished, and we just had a blast... It's always fun when we all get together and do things. I'm looking forward to this week full of cardinal's baseball, camp, swimming with Olivia, and a weekend full of fun!! Life is going SO fast it's crazy. My little baby is now a big girl and talks SO much. She's SUCH a blessing even with her little attitude! Here are some pictures from the last few weeks I will make sure to post more now that I'm in a routine I can finally start to relax.

Happy Father's Day To My Wonderful Husband, Daddy, Step Dad, & Dad n Law... Yall are AMAZING men and are such a blessing in my life. Olivia is SUCH a lucky little girl to get to look up to all of you.
