That's what he said...

Mason is going to be taking an exam next week to determine if he can be placed in first grade instead of Kindergarten in the fall. We gave him a chart to track his "studying", ie. 30 minutes of reading per day and 30 minutes of practicing other things like math per day. We told him if he could fill up his whole chart by the time he took the test, and then did his very best on the test that we would have a party and we could go anywhere he wanted, like Chuck- E- Cheese. His response...

"You mean like Hawaii?!?"

Grandma Kathy gave Mason a sand dollar last time she was here visiting. Unfortunately Victoria broke it. Mason started yelling at her, but then saw all the sand on the floor. He excitedly exclaimed MEXICAN SAND!!!!
Luckily we were able to glue it back together.

And finally...

We told Mason that if he finished his chores, he could play computer until 9PM.  He tried to finish and ended up being done at 8:59PM.  Looking at the clock, he said, "oh man", and pressed his hands to his eyes.   Mommy asked him if he was going to cry, to which he responded, " tears just popped out of my eyes...and I'm trying to pop them back in!"
