Fight Night

My sister Traci and her husband Jon had Fight Night at their house on Saturday. UFC is something that Brett and Duncan enjoy quite a bit!

We had a lot of fun. Good food, good people, lots of punching and kicking.
However, Duncan had gone on a 10 mile hike with the Boy Scouts on Saturday morning and he was wiped out. It was quite entertaining to see him trying to stand up and walk to the car. He did wake up for the last fight. So, he at least got to see that.

My big brother has a new hobby. Bowling. He invited us all to Boondocks to go bowling last night so we went and had a good time.

The kids had a lot of fun. And I beat my Dad for the first time. =)

I think I might have over done it

I've been doing some reading on how to run properly. So Brett and I got new shoes, because I can't tell you how old my other shoes are, and have been doing better. The problem is my calves are not used to running on my toes. So I think I pulled my calf muscle last night.

Brett found me an ACE bandage this morning and I've wrapped it. Hopefully it won't cause me too much grief!

More Duncan Pictures

My sister had taken some more pictures. They just didn't download with the rest. I thought I'd add them.

11 years old......really????

Duncan turned 11 years old on the 18th........what happened????

11 years ago, Duncan was born. The 1st grandchild on my side, and the 7th and 1st on Brett's. He was my sweet baby, that loved his Mama and Daddy. He was up at the crack of dawn from the minute he hit six months old. He was bright eyed, and active at all times.

He slept in our bed with us until Brett said, enough is enough. Then I freaked out the first night he slept in his own bed. He crawled at 9 months and walked at 11 months. We haven't been able to hold him back since.

Happy Birthday, Baby!

I'll try to add something tomorrow.

Headaches and Thin Mints

I really hate waking up with a head ache. I'm not sure why this seems to happen to me. You'd think that a decent nights sleep would allow you to not have a headache.

Cure? Thin Mints. Ok.....not so good. Jason is bringing them to me to open for him. So of course I have to share the package with him. =)

My boy is growing up

Duncan had to attend a Boy Scout activity in order to get his arrow of light. He went with the actual scouts, not the 11 year old scouts, to build a snow cave. Duncan's buddies that he spends most of his time with are a bit older then him. So he went and spent the day in the snow, thanks to those buddies.This of course is not Duncan.

How did this happen? I'm not old enough to have a BOY SCOUT!!!

Braille Challenge

The girls got to go to the Braille Challenge today. We went to the Blind Center and they divided them into groups. The girls were in the apprentice group together. I followed them to the room they were doing the challenge in, and gave them both a kiss and then went back to the Mulit-purpose room.

Tori says first they did Spelling, then they did some Proof Reading and correction.

While they were in their I got to have a nice chat with the parents of some of the kids.

They apparently had enough kids in the apprentice group that they split it into younger and older kids.

Tori got 2nd place in proof reading, and 3rd place in spelling.

Samantha got 2nd place in spelling.

After they got their awards and we were getting ready to leave.

Marcia is their Vision Impaired Teacher
We got to eat Pizza. Samantha's favorite part.
They gave them each these cute bags at the beginning.

Poor Brett

Last night Brett put Jason to bed. He thought he was asleep and whispered to him, "It would be really nice if you'd stay in your own bed tonight." Right as he said that Jason climbed out of his bed and laid on the floor.

We're in for a long haul with this one.

I'm Dead

I walked/ran a whole 1.043 miles in 25 minutes.

I think it's going to be the end of me!

1/2 marathon LOL!

So my sweet little sister has decided that we all need to get into better shape. Especially me! She has made us all register for a 1/2 marathon.

I've discovered something about myself. I'm VERY LAZY! I know this is a realization that is not going to surprise many. But, it's really easy to just not do something, or rationalize it away.

I told her that she doesn't know what she's gotten herself into. It doesn't matter what I try. What I sign up for. Who I hang out with. I lose interest. So I told her she was in for a tough road. Not that I don't want to get healthier. It's just easier not to.

Good luck Les!!!

Temple Grandin

Brett found this speech given by Temple Grandin. It's quite inspiring, and gives me hope. =)

Doing better

We actually slept a full 6 hours. Brett says Jason fidgeted a bit but he didn't actually wake up. He watched a show this morning without me being in the same room. He's eaten a banana and had a bit of whole wheat toast. I think he's feeling better!!!! Yay!!!!

At the moment he's throwing a tantrum, because he doesn't get my Pepsi. This is feeling a little more NORMAL!
