At dinner time we have got into the habit of talking about our days. The girls always start out the conversation with something like this, "so how was your day?" We then take turns talking about what we did or what happened to us. Shortly after Hailey's 5th birthday we sat at the table and asked her if she was excited to go to kindergarten next year. With her big puppy dog eyes she looked up from her meal and solemnly shook her head. " I never want to go to school without Mrs Janet." We all chuckled at the statement and continued our dinner conversation. Mrs. Janet by the way is Hailey's preschool teacher.

There is something so beautiful about being up before the sun. I admit I hardly ever do that but when I am out in nature it is so worth it. I love seeing the change that happens as the sun starts to rise. The lake was cold and dark with frost and ice clinging to the rocks and trees and as the sun started to rise and spread its colors of warmth the lake started to change. The dark black started to change to hues of orange, brown and golds. The frost began to melt and drip from the flowers and I sat there in the middle of it, just watching it all happen.
Matt introduced me to "beer can" fishing on our first date. We wrap the line around the can with a rock on it and when the fish bites the can is knocked over. I like this technique because it allows me to cuddle up in a warm blanket and watch my kidos. My girls like a more hands on approach and would rather cast out and reel in.

We had a great time with the family and who knows maybe next year I will be brave enough to try out this race....assuming I get off my butt and get in shape!
