Cameron completed his first triathlon today. He did an amazing job and we are so proud of him. His best event was the run, where he kicked butt!!!! He's a small guy (smallest kid at the triathlon), but he rocked it!

Almost 8

Cameron's birthday is not until June, but we went ahead and got him an early birthday present. We had planned on getting him a bike for his birthday, but since he will be participating in his first triathlon in May we decided to surprise him early with some new wheels. He thinks the bike is pretty sweet, but is ready for the rest of his presents...

a lucky mom

I love being a mother to these little cuties!!! My life is complete!

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
— Marjorie Pay Hinckley

"The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache."

"Be a Mother who is committed to loving her children into standing on higher ground than the enviroment surrounding them. Mother's are endowed with a love that is unlike any other love on the face of the earth." Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Happy Mommy's Day!

My Boys

These guys are the best of friends. However, they do have their days when there is constant arguing and they have to be separated.

For example, the other night when I came home from Statistic class I found these notes on the table. According to Dusty it was just another night of craziness between the boys.

This is Cameron's letter to Jake....

"I am sorry Jake for kicking you and punching you and throwing the ball at you. Sorry for doing all those things to you. I am making something for you. From: Cameron.

And Jake's letter to Cameron

"I am sorry I punched you and you are Cameron the best. Love Jake."

Why they didn't use regular paper I will never know. I guess the Cat in the Hat makes better stationary.

$6 bucks worth?

JJ lost his 1ST top tooth this morning! Talk about a super excited kid. He's certain the tooth fairy is going to bring him $6 bucks! Hmmmmm? I'm sure his classmates got an ear full today at school.
