How can I ever repay you
for what you’ve given me?
A daily opportunity
to change the world
for the better
simply by spending time
with the person I love the most..

I am now caught up on our summer's worth of blog posts. Be sure to go back and read about all our adventures.
Hey Tyson you can get off my back now.
P.S. Don't you have a swingset to build? What has it been like 4 years?

I heard the front door slam, and that big yellow school bus took my boy away. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got til it's gone.
I snuck over with a friend to make sure he was ok. He was, I wasn't.....

In January of this year I registered to participate in the Burley Spudman Triathlon. The race is a 1 mile swim, 25 mile bike, and 6 mile run. I started to train in February. Having never swam or rode a bike more than a few miles at a time, I was a bit freaked. And so began my everyday journey to the rec center. All other priorities were put on the back burner until my training was done for the day. On July 31 at 7:30 am I was treading water in the Snake river with about 300 other women in my heat. Overcome by panic, I flipped on my back and floated the first ten minutes of race on my back. Thanks to the current I finished with an okay time despite me thinking I was going to die. The bike was cake, the run was horrible and I finished beating my goal of 3 hours. Official time 2:58:51. I couldn't walk for about a week after.
