Catching our breath.... I think :)

     Well, I am attempting to start over with the blog. The last attempt to keep this site going did not sustain it's self (technology-smechmology, doesn't even auto update based on the time-space continuem of my family) :) 

This last month has been a whirlwind for us! Between the website and becoming more and more involved with our church, it seems we never stop. We launched the website www.dfwmx.com on the 22nd of September. We are praying that it grows to be a success, first for the Lord, and then for our family. 

Let's see... I'll start with Ryder, he is now 19 mos. and showing signs of being a future thrill junkie. ;) He is still often found trying to sneak out to the garage to get on his brother's dirt bike. He has 8 teeth and 2 more right under the gums. He is talking some but still signing quite a bit, as well as making up his own language. I try to work on pronunciation with him as much as possible. He is also the natural social butterfly of the family, winning most people over in less than a minute. :) 

Presley is still our super cross champion, racing in yet another series currently. However, he is learning some hard lessons here at the school of hard knocks, he has had to miss the first two races of the season due to not eating dinner and misbehaving..... (For those of you who are saying this is a bad idea, we are just trying to figure it out as we go and pray for the right direction as parents). Presley is in his first semester of Pre-K at a private christian school in Sachse, which is about 8 miles from door to door. He loves going and is also a big fan of his teacher Mrs. Key. He has told me the names of his friends and is learning spanish and sign language, even coming home and telling me what he learned! He is such an amazing boy, turning into a young man more and more each day. 

        Derek and I are working on the website every day, and Derek is also still doing consulting for the power sports industry. We both were baptized on sunday the 21st of september, and were supported by many of our friends and family. We are so blessed!
I am dileriously tired I can not seem to make too much sense so I will go ahead and end this post :) Here are some recent pics! Take Care
