My Bicycle

Tracy and I have one car. One. But there are two of us. And during the week, we live in two different places. See the problem?

This makes my life a little . . . uncomfortable, so we bought a bike!!! I'll still be suffering in the humid heinous weather here, but it won't take as long as walking! I'm stoked!

Isn't our new bike beautiful? (Please ignore the clutter in the background. . . . I probably made you look at it and notice it more . . . Oh well.)

I don't know how much I'll like it in July and August, but I'm about 98% sure it'll be better than walking. The 2% of my doubt comes from my crappy helmet hair.

A Memorable Memorial Day

On this Memorial Day, I'm so grateful that we live in a country where we are free to choose how we live our lives. I wish everyone knew how to use these rights for sensible, responsible, and moral living, but I guess that's part of what freedom means. Unfortunately "freedom for all" includes those who choose to misuse it in many ways.

May we honor those who have sacrificed so much to protect those rights by doing what is right in respecting the environment, giving respect to everyone, becoming involved in our communities, and working honestly and diligently to pursue our dreams and help those around us pursue theirs.

May we use our rights and privileges for good. May we live to give America a good name. God bless us in our efforts.

Lacey's Mom Has Got It Goin' On!!

Fun, creative, caring. She's my mom.

Some of my favorite memories with my mom are singing duets at church, dancing as if we knew what we were doing, creating inside jokes ("we could always eat!"), making fun of opera singers together, eating her delicious stir fry (and homemade pizza, shakes, cookies, bread...), and well you get the picture.

My mommy has always been there for me. She is such a great example of a strong and faithful woman, and I am so impressed that she has been able to do so much in her life. Plus, when I'm older, I hope I have a fabulous body like hers!

I know I'm late, but I still want to wish her a happy Mother's Day!! I'll always need you, Mommy! I love you!
