Lazy Day

This is what happens to an almost 13 year old after an eight mile hike and campout!
Man I can't keep enough food in this house! This kid won't quit growing!

End of the School Year 2011

 They all made it through the school year.  Many days I wondered if my boys would be held back, but hallelujah-they made it.   They enjoyed field day, and ice cream party, pioneer day and spending the last week having fun with their teachers.  Mrs Will and Mrs Amicon were great!!  I loved these ladies.  Hopefully my kids will have hreat teachers for 2nd and 4th grade!

Adoption 5K

Since about Feb. I have been a non running momma!
  This has been a bummer because I find I need it in order to help keep the stress at bay.  Heaven knows i need an outlet with a husband working 90 hour weeks, 4 kiddos with all their many activities, I many days feel like a single mom.  Anyway, since I couldn't run I registered my fabulous daughters for a 5K.  We trained a little bit and the did an awesome job.  My little Morgan is a runner, she said Paige kept slowing her down and she just wanted to go go go. 

I am trying to train for the Boulder 1/2 Ironman.  It takes place in August, honestly I am just barely running again and there has been little time to fit the training in.  I registered $250 last year.  That is my problem, so much money but it is just not coming togteher.  So I would like to do a shorter distance(maybe an olympic distance).  I have until the end of June to get a small refund of $75 on the IRONMAN.  I will reevaluate then.  Meanwhile, I am going to register my little swimmer Morgan for a kids Tri.  She is on the swim team this year and is loving it.

Mother's Day 2011

These are my fabulous kids on Mothers Day!  And I made this tasty dessert!!!!
Not much to post about Mother's Day this year.  I did get to spend time with the family and take a nap:)

Baseball Erie Tigers

Kailer is into his second season playing competitive ball.  We went up a division and the boys were not prepared.  Needless to say it has been a bit disappointing to see the struggle to win.  But they have improved. Kailer is normally number 58 in football and baseball.  But the lady who did the uniforms messed up.  Totally embroidered 56 on the bag, hat, windbreaker, and jersey.  I didnt have the heart to tell her, but I did pay $250 for the uniform:(  Kailer is almost 13.  He has probably grown close to a foot.  I can't believe how tall he has gotten and how helpful he is.  He's my little  BIG man!  And my go to guy(fixer, lawn moxer, trash taker outer etc), since Dev isnt around much these days.
