Summer of 2013

Last year, we attempted to move to Tulsa. We waited many many months to close and it ended up not working out. Fast forward to this summer and we are on our second house this summer, third house in this process, and it looks like we might see this thing come to fruition!

Our house is up for sale. There hasn't been much interest in it. I am doing my best to trust Him and know His plan is good. He has been looking after us through the buying process so I know he is lookin out for us in the selling process too. If we get this house maybe I'll blog about it. My computer has been in storage for a year and my laptop broke so I am using my Dad's laptop and it hates being a laptop and prefers to not work most of the time.

Chloe is headed to the first grade next fall. What?! Cooper is off to Kindergarten. He did very well in Pre-K. He definitley learned some behavior rules. Hopefully he does even better in Kindergarten. Colbie is silly. She is starting to talk a bit more and is still addicted to her paci. My goal is to put her in a big girl bed and lose the paci when we move. We'll see. Caleb is nine months and is such a sweet sweet boy. Just yesterday I caught him letting go of furniture and standing all alone! He is so ready to walk. I am not ready for him to walk. He really wants to eat the food we eat but the boy doesn't have a single tooth yet! haha Need to make him some spaghetti or something.

It's incredibly hot out already. Kids finished swim lessons this morning. It was a fun two weeks seeing them be little fish. Last year, I was very disappointed in lessons. This year was so much better and productive. This house has an above ground pool and i really need them to swim. Colbie thinks she can swim. She wanted Matt to let her go today in the pool. He did a few times and it didn't phase her one bit! I need to get her in lessons.

Hopefully I'll be able to document the happenings.

Colbie Grace

 This girl turned two back in November.
She is the funniest person I know and also the most stubborn.

I knew I was in trouble when she was born. Coming out sunny-side up leads one to believe, "This child doest things her own way." Boy, was I right.

She is such a good mommy though.

I can't get enough of her.
Her free spirit is contagious.

Chloe the Writer

 Chloe has started writing 'words.' It is the cutest thing reading what she has written and trying to deciper it. It's almost like an odd version of Mad Gab. This girl loves to draw and write and she's good!
 This was her first family portrait as a family of 6.
"I am thankful for that we have Caleb."
Notice Caleb is in the arms of Matt and I have a red pony tail. Girl knows how her momma wears her hair!
 "I am thankful for that God."
"Snowman Party"
This one makes me giggle. (PRDE= party)

It wasn't that long ago that running was impossible. It was between Cooper and Colbie that I got the diagnosis of MS. I remember thinking I may not run again.

Fast forward to January 19, 2013.

I competed and completed my first sprint Tri at four months post partum.  

I didn't win. I could have done better.

I laughed. I was nervous. I ran with friends.

I did it.

Three activities I could not do a few years ago...

I did them all in 59:59.
