To night we had family dinner, it was Nancy’s Birthday. After we ate and hung out, Brad wanted to go for a run at CAC. Tommy wanted to go and so of course the rest of them wanted to go, so we went. The kids ran a race together and then we started to walk, Brad started to pass us and the kids took off running with him. I thought that they would run a lap or two but to my surprise Brett (7) ran 2 laps, Monique (9) ran 3 Laps, David (5) ran 5 laps!!!! Tommy (10) ran 7 laps!!!! For those of you that don’t know I love to run it was my thing and to see my children doing so well was so great. David stopped after the first mile for a moment then he decided to run another lap. Tommy was 1 lap short of two miles. I am going to start running with them. The best part is we got home and the kids had baths and went straight to bed with out any problems, yah.

Well I have told you about the boys, you could say I am saving the best for last. Monique is the best little girl. She was awesome this last year when I had migraines, she would clean the kitchen, make dinner, and always keeps her room clean. Did I mention SHES EIGHT!! She will make a good mother and wife someday. Monique has struggled in school a little bit and has to work a little bit harder then the boys, but she has made Honor Roll twice. Monique has great taste in cloths, and will let you know if you mach or not, or if what your warring is fashionable. Monique has been a mommy’s girl from day one. I kept expecting her to change and be a daddy’s girl around three years of age, but it never happened. She was not a crudely baby at all she wanted to eat and then be put down in her own bed. To this day she will take up an entire bad no mater the size. Ok, we will have to see how the wife thing will turn out. They may have to have two beds. Monique has read half of the Book of Mormon by herself and is reading the other half with the family. I hope to have it finished when she turns nine in September. She is the only grand daughter on Tom’s side and is ready for a girl cousin ( hint, hint).
