Bike Race

video
Adlyn had been looking forward to the bike race in August for weeks!  She had to race in the 5-6 year old division, since they didn't have a race for 4 and under.  She had been determined to win this race!

After watching the video, you'll see that she did.  Her expressions make me laugh - especially when she throws her head back at the end.

She had a mint chocolate Clif Bar that she ate between all of her races to keep up her energy.  She was very serious and focused!  What a goofy kid.  She makes me smile!

School

School has started again, and we are getting back into a routine.

They started preschool, and transitioned fairly well.  Adlyn had a few tears on the first day, but Brooks went right in.  The next morning, Adlyn threw up as we were leaving the house.  Great, but all was ok.  I think she was just nervous.  By day three, they were great!

I'm glad that so far this looks like a good year.

Their next school starts in a few weeks.  They will be in different classrooms.

Costumes

As we were walking down Main Street the other day, Brooks asked me to make him a monster truck costume for Halloween.  Then, he wanted me to make Adlyn a smashed car costume so he could run her over.  Adlyn was not excited about that, she wants to be an owl instead.  Brooks asked me if I could wear a smashed car costume instead!

Fingers

I know, it has been forever since I posted anything.  It has been a busy summer, and I couldn't keep up!  Now, I need to get caught up!

Brooks told me the other day in amazement that his fingers were just the right size to fit in his nose!  I didn't tell him that as he continues to grow, they stay in direct proportion!
