Trailer Kid

Oh, wait! Just when you thought only JW was not in School, turns out he is! Luann with some church friends are doing a little preschool for their kids. But, only one day a week to help transition into Kinder. So cute!

American Ninja Warriors

Because my kids are awesome, they love to be active. We have watched this show called American Ninja Warriors all summer, and they love to re-enact the obstacles they have. Especially the little boys. JW's favorite is the Hook toss: hanging from the bunk beds, toss a Captain Hook hook; don't ask me what the point of the toss is, he just loves doing it. Mr S loves to do the climbing ones: we have a little opening on the stars with a few poles that he hangs from, about 5 feet in the air. Totally safe, right? Must be, since they have not fallen yet! The best part is that they also reenact the fails on the course: "I failed" is a commonly heard phrase.

So at the park, it is natural to see them do the same:
JW just hanging around
Mr S concurring the arch 
Kiwi race from end to end

Seven Evans

As Chad mentioned previously, we are expecting number five in February. With three boys and one girl, this was not going to be a surprise. Some of us need to be prepared for what is to come.

Reach the Beach

Summer race number three and the hardest yet! I decided to run a second Ragnar in New Hampshire.
 Of course this was decided before I knew I was expecting. Instead of dropping out, I decided to run at 19 weeks pregnant. I did Foamfest at 6 weeks along and Spartan at 14 weeks. What could possible go wrong? As it turns out, nothing. The other van had runners dropping like flies. I was good to go and had a blast doing it. I had to walk a few steep hills during the 8 mile night run to keep my heart rate in check. I also have some awesome friends who take good care of me.
This was actually how it was. Crazy hills on this course!

The van is packed
The toes are painted

Who ordered the rain?!

Thanks for the memories ladies! I had a blast but now my running days are over for a while. I won't be running Cape Cod in May. I don't think people would appreciate a crying baby along for the ride!

School Starts Again? Say it isn't so!

After a very, very busy summer of fun, sun, and adventure (mixed with fighting, fatigue, and crazy), the school year finally gets underway. The After Labor Day Start still seems very late to me, but given that the summers are so amazingly nice (excluding the hot n humid days, of which there were very few this year), it is a nice perk. The kids are growing soooo fast, that we now have three in school (Mr S in 1st, Kiwi in 4th, and Gman in 7th). JW is going to have so much fun with Mom, and maybe, just maybe be bored of being home (somewhat) alone by the end that he is ready to go to Kinder.
