The Latest!

Well, Kirk has been gone for two, I am stressed, tired and a lacking patience. However, Alayna has been in Lubbock at my parents' house all week. She went down to Lubbock with some friends last Friday and has stayed the whole week. She is a lot like her mommy - loves being gone and doing big things! It has been easier only having two children.
Alayna has learned to ride her bike without training wheels. She is fast and fearless, so we are going to have to invest in a helmet.

On Tues Syd was trying to help me out and got a roast that I was warming up out of the microwave. She managed to get it out, but she spilled it trying to put it back. She burned herself from her neck down to her waist. It is healing nicely, but is still scary! On a brighter note, she wanted her haircut, so I gave in. It looks really pretty and she looks so grown up.

Taytum is wild and crazy. She thinks she is 5 years old. She talks so well for an almost 2 year old. Everyone thinks she is 3. She mimics big sisters and loves to do what they do. She loves to dress up, talk on phones and is constantly making us laugh.

I am preparing for my marathon. I am 4 weeks away and I am getting rather anxious, nervous, scared and ready to get it over with!

Not much else is happening. We also have Taytum's 2nd b-day coming up. I bet that will be my next post. So off to grading papers and trying to get everything done.

Hey! Long time no talk! Your girls are so beautiful- I love Syd's haircut and her outfit. I am glad she's ok. I am always worried about Hadlea doing that-she loves to "help".
I am so impressed about your marathons! You are going to have to tell me how you got into this. You looked great in your marathon post! Go girl!

Amy Lee having a child that is "fast and fearless"???? I'm shocked :) Syd's hair is precious.

Syd looks BEEE U Tiful! All three do. Awesome with the bike Alayna! Good luck with the marathon- I am in such admiration...

They are all so cute! Taytum seems to have turned into a big girl overnight.

Should I tell me non-bike riding 7 year old that Alayna can ride without training wheels?

See ya!

That should probably say "MY non- bike riding 7 year old". Maybe I should proof read BEFORE I publish.
