started it off by "running" a 5K. we actually did run a pretty good chunk of it! and i'm stiiilllll feeling it 2 days later. and it was t.o.a.s.t.y. out there. here's our team anderson! holler.
did a little more running by taking the kids to the track that afternoon. all the space they can handle. energy outlets galore. good idea.
[get it? 2 and 4?....]
i know he's my kid and all...and i think he's awesome. but i really think he's got a great stride. which he obviously gets from his mama, and i get practically scouted by college track coaches when i'm out jogging around. bahahaha
we've been having some "sleeping in" issues over here. i get that little kids aren't going to sleep until 10am, but 7 would be greeeeeeeeeeeat. gus had been waking up when the SUN did, which fyi is about 5:45. no. bueno. so we made an investment in my sanity by spending $25 on these shades. i really like how they make the room look too. more finished or something.
we had a few "when it rains it pours" situations this weekend...one being our vacuum going up in smoke. but my dear handy man decided to try to replace the belt first. i really don't know how he knows how to do so many random things. but my vacuum works better than ever. he gave me smack about taking this picture. but i love a man that fixes nasty stuff for me with toddlers hanging all over to "help".
nice to know the floor is cleanish for wrestling matches.
and baby chillin'.
"hiiiiiiiiiii weoooooo, hiiiiiiii!"
this was a fun game of pretend mommy is asleep then wake her up.
we have a loooooooooot of books. and a lot of toddler bibles. you still gotta love when they are the books of choice. love gus's blue marker hands.
and rex can flip through and actually tell the stories, correctly, from the pictures...
i just love this. he put his pants on "by sup"[by myself]
i can admit when i'm wrong. really. and while i'm trying more lately to capture the greatness of our life on film...we get some horrible pictures. not just bad quality, ha....but just bad. or maybe they are still good. like this one. because i was ticked here. i asked kev to come take a picture "real quick" and by the time he got there everyone was mad. moment--long gone. he laughed SO hard after snapping this, realizing he had caught this face, and i couldn't help but laugh too. i should be laughing that i thought we would get a good picture in the first place with 3 hungry kids, 1 of which had lost his "flops".
i am a stay-at-home-mom to our 3 boys. no, we're not trying for a girl.
i'm married to my best friend kevin who is the tallest thing that ever happened to me.
we're passionate about our God, our family, and helping others get out of debt.
we try hard to enjoy each moment!
