Going, going, GONE!!!!

Alexa lost her third tooth today. It was her first top one and she has quite a nice gap now. It's been loose for days and she kept playing with it until it popped out today. Here are the before and after shots.

Running, running, running!

This week is the last week of school for Alexa. I have been ramping up my workouts, running 6 miles Monday, biking 15 yesterday and I ran 7 miles today in 72:15. I don't think I have done that since high school!

Makes me think of running a race somewhere. Kory would love to do the Hononlulu Marathon in December.....I know I could do it, but training in a rainy Holland it just not possible for me. I just detest running in the rain, and being bitter cold for that amount of time. Then going to run in a hot climate like Hawaii would be a shock to the system. Maybe I can find a nice 10K this summer in Michigan to run?

Adventure in the Dunes!

My friend Kelli took Alycha and I through the Dunes of Wassenaar today on our bikes, and headed north on the way to Katwijk. The hills were steep, but the view was awesome! I have never done anything like that before being a novice rider. It was about 15 miles total. We stopped and shopped and had lunch in Katwijk on the ocean then headed back home around 12:30. It was sunny and about 72 degrees and slightly windy. Perfect day for a ride!

Here is a map of where we went:

The best.of the best.....Britain's Got Talent

If you like American Idol you might like these. This kid won the whole competition you have to see these youtube links! 14 year-old George Sampson, a poor boy from London and a self-trained street dancer took the title and a 100,000 pound ($200,000) prize Saturday night. He also gets to perform for the Prince of Whales at the Roryal Variety Show. The first video is his win to get to the live shows. The second is his semi-final performance on the live stage. He did the same program for the final and blew everyone away a second time. I hope he has a long career ahead of him. BRILLIANT!
