Run Turner Run!

Coming up to the finish line

3 of his cheerleaders

Yesterday Jared ran the half-marathon in the Country Music Marathon (along with over 30,000 others and over 100,000 spectators) here in Nashville and finished in 2 hours 24 minutes. Even with the big hills and temps in the upper 80's, the runners pushed through! The atmosphere was awesome with live bands playing all along the course and the beautiful sunshine and skyline! We are so proud of Jared and all the hard work and training he has put into it. He's our hero!

Too Little for Lego Love

This is the way I still think of my Scotty--3 years-old and cheeky (and boys still have cooties). On the way home from school today, Scotlyn (in a concerned voice) told me that a boy in her class likes her. She knows he likes her because he has been "acting weird" because he's made her 2 Lego structures "since yesterday". This young man's sidekick told Scotlyn that Lego Man wanted to go out with her. Her reply? "When you see him tell him I'm not allowed to go on dates until I'm sixteen." So it begins. . .

Gift to Baby Girl #4

Here is my rag quilt that I made for baby girl (any name suggestions, peeps?). It's my first sewing project (besides my 9th grade home-ec pillow which never made it past one wash). Scotlyn proudly put the pattern together out of love for her new sister. I think it turned out pretty cute and cozy!


Last week, at Girl Scout Camp, Bryn went horse-back riding, hiking, etc. She got all dolled up in this cowgirl outfit and was the cute-inest, rootin-est, tootin-est (LITERALLY) Junior Girl Scout ever!
