Oh yah, the fam accompanied me to Disney, how could I forget?

I'll tell you how: By running the greatest race in the history of all the races ever. I guess we had fun together ....more

The time I ran the greatest race in the history of all the races.

So the BRPE and I went to Disney World to run the race of all races - the Disney Marathon. Lemmetellya, it's the best race I've ever run. Hands ....more

If there was ever any hope of my daughter supporting me financially someday, it went out the window this year.

Because this girl is KILLING IT in the theater. She went from Dorothy in Wizard of Oz right to Amaryllis in Music Man (and next is Jasmine in Aladdin). She's on fire, ya'll ....more

A lot of normal things have happened the past four months

I've been avoiding this place lately because I got behind and every time I thought about catching up I got overwhelmed and wanted to go hide in a closet.But, these are the only memories my kids are going to have because Lord knows I don't scrapbook, I haven't printed a picture since 2007, and I drink too much aspartame to be able to sufficiently remember anything. So, this is it.My to-blog list: hiking the grand canyon - we didn't die Thanksgiving and Christmas - you know, gluttonous Bode's sports - he recently said he's having two children and naming them LeBron and Kyrie, so, basically, it's going great Mia's theater - she's been in Music Man, she's been to Sacramento, she's mentoring special needs kids, and just got cast as Jasmine in Aladdin (she just had to be the slutty princess) MARATHON IN DISNEY WORLD! Why, yes, this did need to be in all caps, thankyouverymuch Jen Hatmaker and I are besties and now I can die happy ....more

I don't know how to say this without sounding like a dum-dum so here goes: I'm too into Bode's sports. I get too much satisfaction out of it. I know I should be ashamed of myself, but I'm kind of not ....more

I'm teaching the kids how to use Uber. It's the only way to survive.

So, I remember when my kids were babies and I thought that as soon as they could wipe their own rears I would be set. But the thing with kids is their is always, always a catch....more

School started and stuff.

School started with minimum fanfare. It's like the kids are finally resigned to their fate. Bode has a new (to Oakdale) teacher for third grade this year ....more

Every time I go on vacation I wonder why in the hiz-nell I live in Oklahoma.

Except when I go to Houston, or pretty much anywhere in Texas, or Florida, or Kansas, or Nebraska. But other than that, I just can't figure it out. Case in point: ...more

Oh, my heart.

There are times in your life as a parent that you shouldn't overthink. These are times you just need to whisper a "thank you" to Jesus and love and enjoy every minute of it because they don't come around all that often. That's the truth.For me, those times happen when I get to watch my kids killing it at the one thing they love the most ....more

I'm kind of over taking 900 pictures a day of my kids.

But, I will take one or two per month....more
