Fianlly, we slept late. It was 10:00 before I woke up this morning. Wow, it has been years since I slept that late. I say that like that is something to be proud of. Anyway, I got up and attempted to clean while the kids were gone, but got interested in a Lifetime movie and didn’t get anything done. Jim took off on his bike for some training for the Camp Sam ride of love that he will be particiapting in. You can visit www.campsam.org to get more info on the the ride and stay tuned here for more info on how to sponsor Jim in his ride. He rode 10 miles today which is 140 miles short of the Ride of Love, but 10 miles further than I would have made it. It will take a lot of training, but can you imagine the feeling of pulling into the camp site with all those brave kids watchng and knowing that you did it for them. I know as a parent, what it was like to see them pull in, but this year Jim will get to see if from both sides. Wow! He rode all the way to Paw Paw’s house and then Paw Paw brought him home. We have given him a hard time, but it is all in fun, we didn’t expect him to jump on and got 50 miles. Once they all got back here the boys played outside for hours. They rode every riding toy we own. They are so funny!
Around 3:00 we finally drug them into the house and got cleaned up and went out to eat and to Hobby Lobby to get some cake stuff for Taylor’s Lighning McQueen birthday cake. Taylor has eaten like a horse and even after dinner wanted more to eat, so we swung by the Dairy Queen for some chocolate ice cream. He ate all of his and half of Logan’s. Logan dropped his and it didn’t make too much of a mess, but when I finished cleaning it up and turned to get back in my chair, I saw ice cream on the man across from us pants and shoes. Oops! That wasn’t funny, but he was cute in Hobby Lobby. We were in the silk flower are and he leaned over and sniffed the flowers and said, “mmmm, that smells good.” He is a nut!
We are now home where we are back to normal. Logan is in trouble. He pulled all the little decals off his walls. Those things hung in Taylor’s room for 3 years and he never touched them, they have been in Logan’s room for a week and he has pulled them all off.
Please be in pray for Taylor’s continued success against cancer. Pray for all our friends that are still battling. Pray that 2007 brings the cure!
