I'm So Proud!

Jesse won the cat 4 part of the Flatwater Cyclocross Grand Prix on Sunday. It was kind of a big deal. I am so, so proud of this guy. Click on the link above for more information. There's a super cute picture of Maximus on the website too.

I'm sure he took 1st because of Maximus screaming, "Go Desse! Raaaaaace!"

So Grown Up!

Look at these pictures. When did my baby grow up? I can't believe how mature he looks! I'm freaking out!

Look Mom!

Among other things, I'm so grateful my mom taught me to sew.

Maximus is obviously going as an "arrrgh meekey" ("arrrgh matey" aka: pirate) this Halloween. I didn't use a pattern for any of this- I traced his clothing onto paper bags and created rough patterns that way. The costume isn't complete yet, I still have finishing edges, but I wanted to post a picture. Dude, I never thought I could make sleeves! Sleeves are insane! And pants! Okay, I'm stepping off my soapbox, but I love the feeling after making something like this!

A Few Random Pictures

I love this picture. Just a boy sitting with puzzles in his overalls. He looks like the perfect child...oh wait, he looks like the perfect child because he is the perfect child!

I don't want him growing up, so I swaddle him like an infant. So far it's working.

When Jesse races, he rides hard and fast. Too fast for corners most of the time and until he learns the proper speed to corner, this is what his legs will look like. And he complains, "damn- that scab was almost healed." Good thing Dr. Sherwood grabs his medical bag and comes to the rescue.
