Greyhaired Family Update

Because I know you've been thinking about us non stop, I thought I'd relieve your burdened minds!  Heh, heh, heh...  Greyhaired Family Roll Call... Ready?  Go!

Motorman:  Flying like crazy.  Well, not crazy.  Just busy.  Crazy would be having to eject out of his jet.  Heh, heh, heh...  {ahem} Teaching lots of classes, and young "kids" to fly has caused my Marine to flourish.  He is so happy with his job, and we're happy that we get to see him frequently.  And no deployments on the horizon?  Icing on the cake!

(He's handsome as all get out, isn't he?  Swoon!)

He's also been busy filling our home with custom painted plastic soldiers.  And making molds to make his own soldiers.  And making forts, batteries, weapons, and other stuff I don't even know the names of for said soldiers.

CraftyGirl:  Finished her 3rd grade year as a homeschooler with flying colors.

Continues to crank out amazingly creative craft projects.  Has made and sold some fingerless gloves as well as hats.  Not to mention all the lemonade our neighbors are getting to drink -- after they pay for it, of course.  I think we need to teach CraftyGirl to spell "entrepreneur!"  She's creeping up on her 9th birthday, and each day is showing us how she's becoming more responsible, helpful, and generous.  I'm sure it has nothing to do with her desire to show us she'd be a responsible hamster owner!

TheBoy:  If growing were a sport, this kid would be an Olympic gold medalist!  We cannot believe how big this boy has gotten.

He has successfully completed his 1st grade year and is reading and figuring like a champ.  His interests range from Star Wars Legos to Pharaoh's Quest  Legos to military soldiers to military tanks back to Legos... You get the picture.  And speaking of pictures, TheBoy cranks out amazing drawings.  Usually of Star Wars, Ancient Egypt, tanks, soldiers... I'm seeing a recurrent theme here...

Greyhaired Momma:  (That's me!!)  Now that our school year has officially ended, I expect to catch up on all that couch sitting and bon-bon eating I missed out on during the previous part of the year.
Oh.  Okay.
I continue to set up a booth at our local Farmer's Market to sell my photography.  I am amazed at the blessing that pours forth when I share my heart for finding God in His creation.

I have also continued to eat Clean and to run.  I just finished my third 5K of the year and I think I've caught the running bug.

I've registered to run my first 10K.
This summer.
Away from home.
In a much more mountainous region than I have been training in.
Altitude?  That's gonna make training fun!  For most of my runs, I am blessed to run along the Gulf of Mexico.  At about .5 feet elevation.  Where I'm going?  Yeah... It's like 2,600 ft.  Huff and puff, baby!  Huff and puff!  And, that's not even the crazy thing.  Wanna hear what's crazy?  I've been throwing around "half marathon" like I might, one day (soon), be taking it on.  Woot!

We thank you for keeping up with us.  I'll try to do better about keeping the blog updated.
Now that I have all this free time to couch sit and eat bon bons, that is!!
