I also got to go on my first road bike ride this morning. I watched the temp and figured that 27 degrees was balmy enough to enjoy a ride. I'm not going to lie. It was hard getting used to being in a very forward position and yes, I had to watch a tutorial online on how to shift. I spent the first part of the nine mile ride in one gear.....because I'm an idiot. I finally figured out how to shift into a nicer gear and boy were my legs thankful. I'm used to a mountain bike and this is so much different. I also believe that road bikes are meant for people with larger hands than mine. My hands were cramping up and barely reached the brakes. Once again, something I will have to get used to. Two of my close friends from high school and bridesmaids are thinking about doing a triathlon in Naperville this summer. It's in June so that doesn't give me a whole lot of time, but it will be something to get me motivated to train harder.
Time to go back to reality.....motherhood is calling.

Here we have Baylor with an owie from his little brother. I find it very amusing that he was beat up by a dude shorter than him. He is usually the one doing the picking, but this time he got boxed. I'm giggling inside and know full well that Brody will probably kick his butt many times.
My favorite red bench that sits on our porch. Unfortunately it has now become a snow boot holder for the time being. I'm hoping it will turn into a flip flop holder very very soon.
The other ball of hair sitting on the porch soaking up the rays today.
This was my lunch today. Black beans, corn, onion, fresh cilantro, avocados, roma tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, lime and sea salt. So good. So good for you. I could eat it every day.

“It would probably not be an exaggeration to say that disobedience is one of the main characteristics of modern Christianity. We know what Jesus teaches but we do not do it. Disobedience in sexual morals, in relationships, in attitudes to those who make life hard for us. Disobedience in lack of hospitality, in begrudging our money, in unwillingness for change. Our disobedience is not marginal to our lives; it is central. We do not make time to spend with God, but give it all to our work and our pleasure. We do not set our affections on things above and find treasure in heaven, but are more materialistic than any previous generation has ever been. We do not obey the Lord’s last command to go and make disciples. Instead we are hesitant about the content of the good news, and reluctant to talk about it.”
Michael Green, Thirty Years That Changed the World. p.44

Baylor has this huge fascination with eating snow. Just as long as it's not yellow....or brown for that matter.

It was valentines weekend and that meant we needed to have some heart shaped pancakes. The boys loved them. Like most Saturday mornings Lonnie is away at track meets so I like to do something special for the boys. Since it seems like they spend every waking hour with their mother, I also try to make their time with daddy special too.

This is not even the half of it. I did a little test this week to see if I could wait an entire week without doing a load of laundry to see how many loads would accumulate within the week. The answer my friends is about 8. I am still confused as to how four people could create such massive amounts of laundry. I am also realizing, having posted this photo, that my bra is hanging out of the side. Awesome. It's an A cup, just in case you were wondering. Baby boobs.
He's cute. He's covered in snot....and chocolate milk...and is still in his pj's. He also carries around his "mush-er" which means measure. I labeled this photo just in case you were confused as to the slimy substance running down his face or the brownish goop around his mouth. Both of which are non toxic.
This is what happens when you do art all day (I washed my hands, I promise) It becomes you. It also is all over my house. On my sinks...my pants...my face...hair...floors....and children.

I went upstairs to see if Brody had fallen asleep after an hour of screaming. He indeed had......in the clothes basket. So cute!
