The Rules:

2. Post the 4th picture in that folder.
3. Explain the picture.
4. Tag 4 people.

This is a picture of me crossing the finish line at last year's zoo run. Pretty exciting, isn't it!

I tag Connie, Danna, Jeanne, and Nancy.

Mix-up Times

Both of our kids have their confusion of different things. For Kalista it is her mixed-up metaphors. . My two favorite are . . .

"Mom, can you borrow me a favor?"

"You are cracking me nuts!"

With Isaac it is a different story entirely. He is totally confused about time. He is constantly saying things like . . .

"Remember, yesterday when I was big? I was watching TV 'cause I was a grown-up."

"I'm 5 and on Saturday I'm going to be six. Then next time I will be a grown-up." (His birthday is in August, by the way!"

So silly. . . .

One busy month

So I realize it has been a month since I blog. . . . I have no excuse exceptthat we have been very busy getting back to school, getting new tires and brakes on Erin's car, being rear-ended in the van, taking the van for its first estimate, having Erin's car break down in the parking lot of the body shop(new fuel pump), calling my friend to pick up me and the kids while Erin waited for a tow, being told the van was drivable and the body shop couldn't begin repairs until the middle of February, taking the van to another body shop, having body shop two declare the van undrivable, finally getting a rental and Erin's car fixed, all the while visiting the chiropractor 3 times a week, Erin's swim meets, and I could go on and on. . . But so could many of you I am sure so I'll leave you with a few pics of the smashed up van and of the kids in the snow this past week on the second of our two snow days. . .
