Aren't they cute?? All three of these girls are training for the Peachtree Jr. Road Race that will be held on May 30th. It is a two mile run. Today was their first practice. Emma ran it last year and we all had fun cheering and rooting her on! I am very proud of them. They are such hard workers...when they want to be!
Everyone except Emma posed for papa since he is away on business. We all miss him and can't wait for him to come home. He had some fun today taking a tour of London on a double decker bus. He was on the roof in the open air. He said they had a lot of fun. Tomorrow the work begins!

Brower, Ira, and Savannah waiting for the primary activity to begin. Savannah, always the poser.
At the end of this activity each child got to bring home a live gold fish. Since I have five children in the primary, guess how many are in our fish bowl? Wrong, they gave us 6...one extra because by the time Ira got to the front of the line, there were only two fish to a bag left. It's a good thing too. By the time we got home one of the fish was already dead!
Matt managed to get me to pose for a picture. I guess it's always nice to have a before and after shot. This is me 40 pounds heavier than I started out. Luckily Matt cropped the shot where he did! Only a few weeks to go and I'll get to hold the little maniac. He kicks me like crazy and is already 5.9lbs as of yesterday. He sitting low, head down and in position. Not comfortable, but definitely worth it!
Ira and Selah spend all day together while the other children are at school. They really love each other. I'm conflicted whether I should put Ira in preschool next year or keep him home. He's not going to be in kindergarten for two more years. But, I do have the baby coming soon. He needs a little time to be social with the world. Selah will be lonely though!

Here's Ira loving the cold. We haven't had a flake of snow all winter. Now that it's March, it finally got cold enough, after 2 days of constant rain, to snow. The children took advantage of it and had a blast playing with their friends all day. It should be gone by tomorrow, but one day is all they needed to tide them over until next year.
