A Whirlwind...

Wow it's October already!  What happened to September?  I can remember thinking that having a baby(Ryan) would be great because it would force me to slow things down.  I was so wrong.  If anything it has sped things turbo mode at that too!  Seriously, I need a good solid month to catch up.  Don't even get me started about how many weeks pass by between deep cleaning my house.  You would be grossed out!    I need that sign that says, "Excuse my messy house, my kids are busy making memories."  So lets back up a bit shall we?

Labor Day weekend we had the cutest little visitor come to see us.  Our cousin Colbi!  Tyson, Jayne and Colbi flew in to see us for a few days.  It was so fun to meet this sweet girl.  She has the cutest "Ooooohhhhhh" and is just a little peanut.  She and Ryan would be the best of buddies if only we didn't live so far from each other.  

 Then school started.  Both Zach and Kate in school for a full day!  Freedom you think?  For just a moment, until I finally decide to catch up on what I held off over the summer.  And I have discovered that I have a hard time telling people no.  So anyone who asked me to help them with something this month got an enthusiastic yes from me.  I really should be better at being selfish if I am ever going to get the concept of truly slowing down.  

  Justin turned 34!  34?!  Its numbers like this that freak me out, especially when I realize that I have known this person for 15 years!  That's a milestone folks.  This year we bought him a Nike fuel band.  Little did I know it would light a slight competitive fire under his you know what to be active.  I just thought he would enjoy tracking his daily activity, not motivate him to do extra things to up his fuel points!  Needless to say for a guy who doesn't like wearing things around his wrist, its been a month and it has become a permant appendage.
