Super Shooter!

This past weekend Carl shot in his last competition before we move and he went out with a bang! ;) I wasn't able to be there, as I was taking care of our little shooter, but he and his buddies got some fun video, and the best part of all--he got FIRST PLACE in a category---Best Military Shooter!!! Great job, Hubby! Below is a fun video of one of the most entertaining stages and pic of his award.

Isn't that crazy? I mean, is it a fair ride/game or a shooting stage? And doesn't it look like fun?!?! : )

Carl's Tri/Duathlon

This past Sunday Carl completed his sprint triathlon that he has been training for. This "sprint" triathlon was supposed to be meter swim, a 15 mile bike, then a 5K (3.1 mile) run. Well, it turned out that the weather was too cold for the swim, so the "tri" turned into a "du"athlon. This is a run, bike, run. So, he ended up doing a 1.25 mile run, a 15 mile bike, then a 5K run. He did a great job, coming in at 1 hour 34 minutes! It was a little cool and raining out, and I had Will slung to me, while holding an umbrella, so the pics of the actual race aren't great. But, Carl did awesome! He didn't have any special equipment like everyone else, just my old bike and his running shoes! : ) Now he is continuing his training for a half-ironman in the future (MUCH longer than a sprint).

Coming in for a strong finish.

New Secretary

Here are a few pictures of my new in-house secretary.
That's right! Got to start them young! ; )
"What was that number again, boss?"

I have to admit...his work may not be so accurate, but he makes up for it in excitement and adorableness (is that a word?). ; )

Here are some more just fun pics of daily life with Will as of late:

I would have edited the red-eye out of these pics, but by the time I noticed they were already loaded, and my computer was giving me issues with loading, so I was too grateful just to have them loaded to go back and edit them.

Love this face! He is getting one of many kisses from his aunt here.

Classic Will.

I recently heard a great quote about motherhood, that I know rings true: "The days are long and the years are short". I am trying to cherish those long days, in light of the short years. :)

Big Roller

Will has been rolling back and forth for a while now, but I have had difficulty catching it on video (imagine that!). Finally I was able to get him on video, without taking forever. He is most comfortable from back to front, so that is what I ended up catching here. He was half-way there, but you get to see most of it. He is going for this Finding Nemo wipes box, that he LOVES. It takes a minute, but hold out, because the end is the best part. : )
