So there hasn't been much going on here.. we are having our same hot days so we are limited to staying inside, or swimming. Bentley is sweet as always... she has started taking her diaper off herself, so I have to make sure there is always something covering her. Luckily we have not ran into a big mess with this yet! Keyword: yet! She is clapping all the time, and saying YAY all the time. She is becoming more verbal sometimes saying "bye" and trying other words. Brenna is not up to much.. just swimming and enjoying summer. Bryson he has been swimming and going to track practices getting ready for the state track meet that is soon approaching. He has also practiced with a baseball team that has been put together for a benefit. There is a local mom that has been diagnosed with cancer. Our community has put together a baseball tournament to help raise money. We are not sure of the weekend this will take place but we are very happy to be apart of something so special. I will post more about this as I find more out.
In case you are wondering... I am still bike riding and eating well. I started Monday.. my younger sister and I are riding bikes together and doing 6.5 miles every day. It has been really nice but extremely hard at the same time. There is not anywhere good in my neighborhood to ride bikes because we live near a highway (small highway) and I rather not ride there. So I have been going to my parents everyday. They live further in the country where there is gravel and hills. Just a short portion is gravel but it is definitely one of the hardest parts. The rest is paved but has many many hills. These two things make it so hard, but when I finish I am thrilled and feel so good. Today we rode 7.5 miles. Have I ever mentioned how wonderful my husband is.. I take a water bottle that hangs on my bike, but it is gone about half way... so my husband is so kind to bring me another bottle of water when I'm out. ha! Sounds bad I know.. but when the temperature is 102 (in the evening) when you are riding it's extremely important to stay hydrated. He makes me smile!!! So things are good here, and hopefully I can stick with this. I really enjoyed hearing your experiences and workouts your prefer. One that I am interested in adding is Zumba, and one of you suggested it. Does anyone else do this? I think it looks fun!
I will update with pictures of the kids tomorrow. Also a few days ago we were informed about a benefit that our neighbors are putting on for Bentley. Her granddaughter sings and she will be having a concert and bake sale in our town. These are very sweet people and we are so blessed to have people like this not only in our lives, but that we can call our neighbors.
