Here are their top 5 strengths ... no weaknesses because that's just mean!
Reilly #5 - She's the most helpful around the house. She cleans really well for a 5 year old!
Sean #5 - He's super entertaining; mad or happy, it doesn't matter!
Reilly #4 - She's easy going. She goes with the flow - even if she doesn't really want to.
Sean #4 - He knows what he wants and isn't afraid to fight for it.
Reilly #3 - She can make a friend anywhere she goes! Wish I could do that!
Sean #3 - He's my buddy. No matter who is around, he'll always cuddle with me.
Reilly #2 - She's exactly like her daddy! It's so cute that they have similar quirks!
Sean #2 - He learns so quickly and especially on his own... I've got to add pics of him and his violin... all self-taught (almost)!!
Reilly #1 - She can do a backward somersault on the trampoline! (That's what she thinks is the coolest thing about her.)
Sean #1 - He's such a boy!! He loves camping, playing with cars, riding the 4-wheeler, wrestling with the dog, etc. He's so fun to play with!
Cranky-Sean had a hard day of whinning and playing... also, I taught him to say, "I'm bipolar... No, I'm not!" It's hilarious! Anyway, Peyton and I were trying to get him to say or do something - I can't remember what - and this is what he said back! Hahahah!

Then, her tummy...
Finally, her bum, but NEVER got very far, skinned her knee, and swore to never to it again.
Sean, on the other hand, just ran straight down it.
Then, plopped in the puddle at the bottom. That's the way!

When we play cards, Reilly has bipolar disease. If she loses, then she pouts and throws a fit, but if she wins, she does the craziest victory dances!
Oh, and that's the same swimming suit she's been wearing for two days straight... including last night!
Notice both of his hands on the keyboard, and his eyes glued to the screen... he's in a whole new generation!! :)
Since Sean typed something on the last post, it's Reilly's turn:
please come to my birthday
She started slow trying to find the keys, but learned really quickly and, by the end, was wizzing through it! She's such a smarty pants!!
What you probably can't tell is that he's on the floor between the beds, with a flashlight to shine on 'scarey shadows.'
Reilly's just cute when she's asleep, but what you can't tell with her picture is that she's wearing her swimming suit under her pajamas.
Sean wants to ttype so5mething and has been bothering me this whole time... okay, here he is,

Sean's freak-out was the FUNNIEST thing ever! I tried sooo hard not to laugh, but did crack a smile every once in a while. He said things like, 'I don't like Reilly's books cause they're boring for me!' or 'I hate Reilly picking big books, I only like little bit big ones.' or 'I'm in charge cause you said that I'm in charge when Reilly's bad.' Man, I wish I could be sly enough to get a freak-out on video! Seriously!
Recently he was yelling at me at the store, so I took him to the car - a common occurence. He kept yelling at me until he realized that he had to go to the bathroom. Then he started yelling, "I have to go super-bad!" Hilarious!!!!!
Oh, and the 'little bit' thing is funny, too. He was wearing long sleeves, a sweatshirt and pants two weeks ago, so I told him it's too hot for all those clothes. He told me, 'it's a little bit cold.' I could NOT change his mind. He got SOOOO mad at me and kept yelling that over and over again. :) Funny, boy!
So, my epiphany was that I won't say that I can't do it. If met with a task that seems over my head, I will say, 'I'll do it!' whether I can or not. In place of that thinking, I will put my best foot forward, give an honest effort and when or if I fall on my face, I will try again and again! The bad news is that I'm still struggling with it.
This past Tuesday, I was playing an intro on my mandolin to a song that had four bars (I think) to fill. I was filling like three and a half (with a whole lot of practice to learn just that), but couldn't come up with that last two beats for the life of me! I don't think I gave it my all on the mandolin, I over-thought it and internally talked myself out of it. I didn't want to further embarrass myself, so I gave up.
How lame am I?? I haven't gotten over it!! I know life is an on-going battle of change, but holy crap! You'd think I could have mastered something along the way! Ggggrrrroooooowwwllllll!!!

If you're in Utah, you should check it out. The prison here is a great resource that we should be using regularly. If you're not, look into it in your state and find out if they have similar programs.

The kids love going to the park and playing with Princess, throwing rocks in the river, and otherwise just being kids. I don't actually think they care that grandma and grandpa are there, but whatever. We'll miss going to the park.
