Park 2-26-09

Funny faces.

showing big muscles and straining because he thinks it makes them bigger.

Boo! I see you!

Tired of waiting on me.

There is a park back behind our subdivision that no one ever goes to because there aren't any houses built so we headed out today. I needed to clean, but we pulled up our carpet and Brad is going to start relaying the floor so I didn't want to dust and then have to redust in a couple of days so I am letting it be, although it REALLY needs it! Anyway, played some hide and go seek and went to the little dog park they have built. Colton it as the point he's tired of the camera and says not another picture please mom. I guess I have worn him out so it's time for a new one. Just kidding, maybe?

Goggles anyone?

Well, Colton found his goggles today and wore them all day pretty much. He cracks me up. He played in the sand on Sunday at Brad's parents and it looks like we smoked him in the eye and he has bites everywhere. It's that time of year again and we do this every year about this time. Fleas love my child!

On another note, we pulled up the nasty carpet in our living room last Thursday and I am thrilled. It was disgusting. We knew we had wood floors, but they went through Carla so weren't really sure what condition they were in. Turns out, not to shabby. Now we want to pull of the hallway and kitchen, but have to figure out what flooring we are going to use first if it doesn't work out. We had a guy come look at it and got an estimate to refinish it and now Brad wants to pull it all up and then relay it so there won't be as many uneven spots. There are some planks that are wide apart and some close together. I have to agree it will look better, but do we really want to open a can of worms like that? He always amazes me so I am interested to see what it looks like when he's done.

At our church this Sunday we are having Servolution where we go out into the community and serve rather than go to services. I am excited. Our small group has chosen to serve at Carriage Inn, but we are choosing to serve at the Clute little league so Colton can do it with us. He will play there this spring so we thought it would be good for him to be a part of fixing it all up. I really want him to be a giver when it comes to helping other people so I am hoping this will help put fuel in the fire to get him aware of helping others and meeting other people's needs.

I scheduled an appointment to go to the nutritionist in March. With all this sugar stuff going on I have lost more weight and we knew I didn't need to do that so I have to figure out how to keep the weight on. On a side note, I went to my girl doctor on Monday and she looked at my blood work from the regular doctor and seems to think that I am hypoglycemic rather than borderline diabetic. Who knows at this point? I just know that when I eat things with sugar I get dizzy and I have to eat regularly or I get dizzy.

That's about all that's going on in the Reich household at the moment. Here's some pics from Colt and Sadie and Maggie in the living room on the wood floor. You can tell Sadie is so tired of pictures in her old age.

Colt is truly into dirtbike riding

Well, we have a child that eat, sleeps, and breaths dirt bike riding. It is official! He asks at least once a day can he ride today. He "practice" rides on his regular bike 3 or 4 times a day and is always talking about how he's got a race tonight he needs to practice for. (all pretend, but I have a feeling going to be true soon) He will ride in the front yard for several hrs and has converted his regular bike to sound like a dirt bike all on his own. He has his dirt bike riding gear on now as I speak just for fun because he has a "race" in a few minutes. I say all this because as a mom this is a fear, but I also don't want to keep him from doing what he loves and is good at. He picked up on it at an early age and I hear people tell me all the time including family, he's too small, how can you let him do this and I have to say I wasn't all for it and still am not, but do I want to be a part of this and enjoy it with him or am I going to hide out because I have a fear of what's going to happen? Brad got him some dvd's to watch that teach some techniques and he will sit and watch them over and over and then goes outside and uses it and will tell you what he did differently after watching the dvd. He picks up stuff that amazes me, yet I can't get him to learn his abc's to save his life. lol That will come, but I am sitting here typing this as he sits in the living room watching a taped supercross that he put on so he can "see if he can pick up any pointers and apply them" in his own words. What has his daddy created? : ) I love that he loves something so much, but see that races are around the corner and I am fixing to have to grin and bare it or stay home and miss a very excited little boy that appears to going to be doing this for a long time. He is so ready to race. Pray that he will do what he loves and stay safe and that I can enjoy watching him love something he loves without having a nervous breakdown.

Just because

Well, Colt got to ride at the extra lot today because the track was closed and then I talked him into going to take some pictures. It's SOOOOOO much easier when he wants to do it and is happy than whining and griping the whole time.
