Growing up

These kids are growing up way too fast on me!!! I feel like they look so grown up in these pictures and it kind of freaks me out. Anyway here is a little update on each of us....(mostly for me to remember-but feel free to read if you want)

Logan: She just started dance again and loves it especially since her cousin Miquelin is in her class. She also started a little mommy preschool that I am doing with some of the neighbors. She loves learning.. She would be content to sit with a workbook in front of her all day... She especially likes to color and paint...She is so sweet and is my big helper...She is a pretty low key kid and finds ways to entertain herself (she loves talking to her dolls and playing pretend) She has also turned more social and likes to be around other kids too- I think her shyness is starting to wear off. (fingers crossed)

Cache: He keeps me on my toes-but is the sweetest little guy.. He started nursery a couple months ago and has finally gone 2-3 weeks without them having to bring him to us for crying. woohoo!! He is starting to talk so much and I love that he can express himself...Lately his two favorite sayings are "want newt nacks (fruit snacks) and "Mom watch this" His obsession lately is toy cars-especially Mater-he also likes to point out real cars too. He is also in love with brings me his shoes first thing in the morning and says "put shoes on peese." (please) He had a fit at the store when I tried some shoes on him and he didn't want to take them off for me to buy them...He is "all boy"(-except for the shoe thing) The other day I had to get after him for throwing rocks at our window in the backyard. (Seriously?? he is only 21 months) He also loves to wrestle and play/tease his sister. He has had his share of fits lately-and hates shopping..(bummer for me) I am still trying to learn how to discipline him-but that will come with time I am sure. Although he has his moments- he has such a cute little personality and melts my heart.

Perry-What can I say...He stays busy working-usually not getting home before 7 or so lately. (makes it a little difficult for me and having dinner ready etc-but I am dealing with it) When he is home he loves spending time with the kids-and it is so cute to see them get excited when he comes through the door. I know they love their father and he loves them sooo much too....He is a great father and husband and helps me out sooo much...

Me-I've been pretty busy training for St. George marathon coming up...I am really excited for it-but I look forward to taking a break and sleeping in after its over. (Early morning workouts can be hard sometimes-especially today when I came in looking like a wet rat from runing in the pouring rain!) I love having it done early in the day though and it gives me the boost of energy I need! I've been trying to get the last bit of summer fun in by taking the kids to the park and swimming in the backyard...This past week it has gotten so cold though!!! I am definitely not ready for winter yet! Anyway-I am enjoying being a mom-it definitely teaches me patience and I am learning so much from these kiddos.

You make me sick bragging about all your working out an stuff! ;) We need to get together sometime, I mean we might as well not live in the same town as much as we have seen eachother lately. I guess when you get back will have to do.

Oh man, those kids - so cute! Good luck training, a run in the rain can be gross but also SO refreshing! Good for you. :) Miss you guys!
