On Saturday Tanner participated in a mini motocross race. He did a lot better than the last time he raced but he is too big for his bike so he has a little problem with being able to keep up with the rest of the kids. Maybe someday we can get him a new (bigger) bike. Anyway here are a couple of pictures of the race. His cousin Iver came and raced too and did really well. He is a natural like his dad!! ha ha On Wed. we got together and took pictures of the Sparks' cousins they turned out cute. Since I had my kids there I got pictures taken of just them. They turned out cute!!! Well I think they are but what is up with 6 yr. olds and smiles. I guess they haven't learned how to do that yet so we are not sure what kind of smile Tanner is giving but it is totally him:)

Last weekend was quite an eventful one Chad left to Arizona on Wed. that night was abbie's pre-school program where her and her class mates showed us what they have learned throughout the year. It was so fun to see her perform but was sad that Chad had to miss it for the second year in a row. That night in itself was eventful. My sister brings home Tanner from school that day and her daughter stays there until they have gymnastics at 4:45 p.m. So as I was getting them in the car I noticed something on the floor of the garage. Well to my surprise one of the kids had knocked over a pan of oil Chad had left out. Ok we were already in a hurry and I had no!!!! clue how you clean something like that up. After trying to get a hold of every male I had numbers for (my husband included) I finally call Liz and she said "Kitty Litter" well like I have that just sitting around my house. So after I drop the kids off at gymnastics I ran to Wal-Mart with Abbie and Lucas. Anyone who has kids knows you just can't "run in and out" anywhere. Instead of getting litter a nice man told me that Tide would work best. Thank you Thank you with about 30 min. left I had to run home get Abbie ready, attempt cleaning the oil and get her to her program. Any way here are a few picture of her with her teachers and a picture she drew at school of herself.
Then on Sat. was her last dance comp. of the dance year woo hoo!!!! and mine of course. Her team got second in both dances. She is such a cute performer and surprises me every time she goes out to dance. She has an amazing teacher, Lauren Porter, who is soooo good at what she does she is a jewel and it will be a sad day when she isn't abbie's teacher. She doesn't have any kids of her own, yet she knows how to handle these already emotional 5 and 6 yr. olds. They adore her. If you were wondering Chad did make it home to watch her at her last comp. it was fun to have him there to see what she has been working on all year. So there you go. I know if doesn't sound eventful but if you knew my kids you would get it. I love them but lets just face it towing a 6 month old around to everything is hard work. The poor thing never gets a good nap :( Well I will post some pictures of him since I haven't put any on the blog yet!!! He is a cutie
