And Quinn? Well- she's still kinda hard :) But really- she is always good when it really matters. She is awesome at school and tries really hard. She is reverent at church and has even grown the guts to participate more.

Where has the time gone? I know, I know... I'm actually two weeks late on this post. We moved on the 2nd of April last year. But WOW!!! It's been a year. So I thought I'd do a recap of the awesome things we've discovered about Texas since we've been here.
It's no secret that we love it here. And if you live here, or have come to visit, I kinda bet that this place has won you over too.
1. The weather. Are you thinking "But what about July?! What about August?!!" Well- last summer, we survived! We went to the pool a LOT, and went to the park early in the morning. We spent time indoors otherwise, in our lovely air conditioned home. And the rest of the year- AWESOME. Spring here?!! Heaven. Fall?? Heaven. Winter?? Still heaven- but you need a hoodie on and can't wear flip flops every day- just once or twice a week. And yes- a couple of times in January I wished that I owned a coat and had to wear a hat and gloves on my run. (this picture was taken in December. At the park with t-shirts on).
2. The parks. There are parks EVERYWHERE. And they are awesome and close and fun.
3. My running group. I love love love that I have such an awesome group of friends to run with. It has changed my life. I have talked about it before, so I'll spare you. But it makes a big difference in my life, so it deserves to be on my list. I'll just leave you with an awesome picture from one of my races. Ha-- the crazy thing about this picture is that EVERY time I see a photographer on the course during a race I make this pose. Yet this is the only picture I've seen of me doing this. So maybe the photographers are seeing me make this pose and choosing not to snap a picture? Who knows... but at least I have this one :)
4. There is so much to do. I leave the house WAY too much- because I fall behind on stuff around the house. I thought I was out and about a lot in Idaho- but I am way more here. (In a good way). And now I don't need to make that 15 minute drive down Meridian Road to get anywhere worth going to :)
5. Veda likes it.
husband who has led us here.
So it's awesome here!! Come visit!! We'll show you some beautiful places and feed you amazing food-all while we enjoy some awesome weather :)

Wowee... we have had an eventful couple of weeks!!!
My kids have been SICK! And me. AND Dave.
And then repeat that all over again... 3 times.
I got sick 2 days before my parents got here and felt crumby the whole time.
Veda was on antibiotics the whole time they were here.
Quinn missed 2 days of school after they left.
Everday I woke up wondering if I should bring one or all of us to the doctor. But we've been so much lately (and I have a family full of medical people who I call all the time for advice anyway).
And I kept putting it off since Veda had JUST finished antibiotics, plus Hendrix had a well check coming up.
So... we went to the well check. And we were all on the mend (or so I thought). And poor little Hendrix failed his hearing test. So when the doctor talked to me about it, she checked him out and we found out that he has 2 bad ear infections. So I'm sitting there with Veda who was coughing her head off and I mentioned how she just finished medicine for an ear infection, so the doctor peeked again... and sure enough- STILL has the infection. Meanwhile- I am actually feeling almost back to normal, but Dave is still fighting the cough. So I think we are all getting better? I sure hope so. I am sick of this!!!!
