Birthday Girl

Clare will turn 10 on Tuesday.  For an early celebration, I took Clare to the zoo.  I knew she wanted to go and today was the perfect day since there were NO activities planned.  We had a nice time together.  It doesn't seem possible that she will be 10.  She was only 3 when we moved to Des Moines.  Clare is one spunky, driven girl.  With her being the third child, she definitely wants to be noticed.  Nothing stops Clare.  When she wants to do something, her mind is set, and she achieves it.  This quality of hers will take her a long way.  She sets the bar high for herself in both academics and in sports.  Can't wait to see what the future has in store for her.  Happy Birthday Clare!!

Her shirt fits her well.  For those who know Clare, fast is the only pace she knows. 

Being Silly

Clare and Ruth were a little bored but had fun playing dress up and clowning around.  Maybe they are planning ahead for a Halloween costume. has been THAT Long??

I can't believe it has been over a month since I have been on my blog.  With the start of school, sports, and going back to work, I haven't spent any time blogging.  Another reason why I haven't been blogging is because importing photos to my new computer haven't been easy.  Iphoto isn't working and I don't know when the problem will be solved.  So the pictures may seem blurry, dark, and not the best in quality.  These are from my iphone and then I emailed them to my computer.
