We took the kids bowling for the first time. It was nice to do something we don't normally do. We all had a lot of fun!
Ethan won the game! GO Ethan!! He even got a strike! I got 2 strikes at the end & took 2nd place- wahoo!

Makelle helped roll some of the balls, she was just happy to watch the balls come up. Good family fun!

My mom ran her first half marathon. She did awesome!

The finish line... maybe one day I'll run one too.
In other news, Kyler has 2 ear infections... & so does Makelle. Kyler is on his 2nd medication because the first one didn't clear it up. Makelle is on her 4th medication, because the first 2 she was allergic to & the 3rd one didn't clear it up. This is our last option, if it doesn't clear up this round then our only option is tubes. We took Kyler in for his "well" check (even though he was sick) only to find out that he's losing weight instead of gaining. I felt a little bit like a failure. We are now bottle feeding & he is much happier & will hopefully start gaining some weight. He was in the 10 % for his weight. It was stressful for the first 2 days to get him to take a bottle; he's getting used to it now. Needless to say it's been a very stressful 3 weeks.

This is pretty cool

Left to Right: Ryder- Sept '09, Tucker- Nov '09, Coen- Jan '10, Kyler- March '10, Ikyka-
May '10
These are "the 5 boys" born on Jeff's side of the family. There is no shortage of friends for Kyler. It's kinda cool that a baby was born every 2 months for 8 months

I needed THIS today. It's been one of those days. It is very inspiring & gave me modivation to continue my day striving to do the best I can & rely more on my Savior. I can't do it all by myself.
