On Saturday, the 4th, the kids went to a free swim class at the Wichita Swim Club. Keenan and Moriah really enjoyed it, and I think it was great to get Caleb prepped for his two weeks of swim lessons at the Y that started two days later.
Keenan and Moriah got an instructor all to themselves!
Caleb was Not impressed that I couldn't be right beside the pool, and acted pretty unhappy anytime he knew I was watching (but did great if he couldn't see me - stinker!)

It was a "woodland animals" theme and these cookies were amazing!
(A moose, porcupine and squirrel)
Look at that amazing cake!
My great friend, Rebekah's sister, Sarah stayed a night with us and I hosted a party for her "Whimsicals Paperie" business. She is an extremely talented artist and designs, prints and assembles all her own paper products (calenders, journals, address books, cards, advent calenders, quote packs, scripture cards, etc).
Here is her gorgeous set up!
I was disappointed at the number of people that showed (in comparison to the number that said they would come), but we had a great time (eating, hanging out, laughing and shopping) with the ones that came!

(She looks soo much like Rebekah!)
I stole this picture she took of her daughter, Selah with Keenan and Moriah
I am training for another triathlon right now and am borrowing a friend's (awesome) stationary trainer so I can cycle without having to figure out how to get away without the kids (and it's in the A/C!) It has a computer program that goes with it that simulates all types of rides. So far I've done downtown big city rides, paradise island, and Northern France - so fun!

A couple Saturdays ago, (while Philip was working on base), I surprised the kids with a breakfast date at Jimmy's Egg:
Like father, like son (Philip apparently used to make structures out of the creamer, etc on the table at restaurants as a kid... sometimes he still does) =)
(Moriah had recently lost a tooth in this picture... here's a better one below)
I was sort of dreading the "missing teeth" look with her, but she's rocking it well! =)
Right now we are on day three of house guests for 8 days! We have our friends, Sun Min and Angela, and their 19 month old, Elias, staying with us for four days, since they are in limbo between houses. The day that they leave, we will turn the basement around to get ready for Tim and Steph and company to be here for a few days on their way North! Woohoo!!!
