“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

This week has been busy busy for me!!!!! I have to say that I so give some big credit and look up to moms everywhere!!!! For the past week I have been watching my nephew and niece for my sister because she went back to work. Easton is two and Bergen is only two months old. The first day it was a piece of cake thanks to Mcdonalds and there wonderful indoor playground I swear that's where you find all the stay at home moms in the whole Utah valley around noon time!!!! But Easton had sooo much fun there and I got a kick out of watching all the kids play together and yes of course we saw some fighting, but the great thing about kids that adults should learn from is that they fight and then its over and they have moved on and are friends again!!!!! But I took him there twice this week because he gets worn out and then its easy for me to put him down for a nap!!!! Yes I swore that I would never get caught driving or owning a fan, but that all changed this week, I did get caught!! Kellie and I switch cars while she is at work because their car seats are already in her van. And I must say they are not bad to drive, but I must admit I felt old. Ha Ha no but they are good if you have little ones, but I'm still not ever getting one. So by the end of the week I was so tired !!!! I always saw moms at like the doctors office or the store with their little kids and I thought that looks so hard how do they do it? Now I'm the one doing it. And you know what you just do it that's all there is to it. But I love watching them in fact I took Easton for the whole day today and night because he is like my little hang out buddy now and I get lonely because Gregg doesn't get home from work till late so Easton keeps me company I love it!!!!! So that's what I'm doing for now is watching the kids to help my sis out for a while!!!!! So that's why there is lots of pictures of the little ones because that's who I chill with these days!!!!!!!
Winston Races Colby Vranes for Athletic Supremacy
One day at the park we were suprised at how fast Winston could actually move. Our friends like to make fun of how lazy he is around the house. We couldnt sit by and let them harrass the little guy anymore after seeing what he could do. One thing led to another and Winston challenged Colby Vranes to a race. We found the Saturday of the Kentucky Derby fitting for the first annual Bullderby. As you can see from the video, Winston wasn't running at top speed and Colby is clearly on HGH. While he did not come out victorious, Winston gained respect from his peers that cannot be measured in victories.
