Moving Again

4 Moves in the almost 5 years of our marriage!!!! As we were pack everything up I might have sighed once or twice and been slightly complaining, slightly that is... But I think I was making Shawn feel bad about moving the family AGAIN! But I started to think moving hasn't been all that bad a lot of good things have come from our moves, best of all are all the different friends we have made. We have had several opportunities to meet many awesome friends. So, even though I have and will be living in boxes for the next week it is worth it... I have met so many great friends in this area, in the past areas and I am sure in the area to come, so here we go....

I had to post this picture because my friends from Hidden Valley, the second house we lived in, invited me to dessert last week and it was so much fun we laughed ourselves sick. And that is when I realized it has been a blessing to move and meet such fun people!

I Won't Not Bite You Anymore

As I was putting Jack down tonight for bed he was touching my face and he ran across a zit! He kept feeling it and saying, "Mom has an owie go get a band aid." As he started to get more tired he said, still touching my zit, "Sorry Mom that I bite you I won't not do it anymore, I be a nice boy." I couldn't help but burst out laughing! I love to hear his explanations for things, they crack me up!

Too... Full

My little brother, Josh coined some of the best phrases as a child. One of my favorites was when he was asked to clean up his mess he would say, "Mom but my hands are too little." It always worked for him, and never for me. I still tell Shawn that sometimes but to no avail I end up cleaning my mess up. Funny thing is Josh's hands are about two times the size of mine now, but I'm sure if he said it in his cute little voice, my Mom would fall for his tricks and do it for him, I guess that is one of the perks of being the youngest...

So today Jack dropped his cup on the floor and I said to Jack, "Pick that up or it will spill." And his reply was, " Mom I'm too full, I can't" Oh Boy, Josh look what you have taught him!!! I guess if he follows if your foot steps he will turn out to be a pretty cool guy! Even if he gets away with way more than he should.

Yes, I Really Did It!!!

Last Saturday I ran a 1/2 marathon. It was one of the hardest things I have ever accomplished. The group that I run with have been planning on running this race, but I didn't think I could do it... but the night before Raquel and Shawn talked me into doing it.

The first few miles were hard, then I got into my rhythm and felt okay, not great, but okay. Then mile 10 hit and my knees killed.... I tried to stop and walk but it made it worse, so Raquel and Sue went on and I ran the last 3 miles alone (I told them to go on, they didn't just leave me)... There were times I thought I might not make it but my determined little mind pushed me through it. I paid for it for the rest of that day and the next, though.

I love doing things that seemed impossible to me! I never thought in my life that I would have the strength to complete a 1/2 marathon, but I did! 2 hours and 12 mins.
