UPDATE: We rode 4.58 miles instead of the eight, but I didn't fall! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be...and my bum hurts.

I'm going to ride the bike for eight miles today. In our family prayer this morning, the kids thought it was funny that I asked Heavenly Father to help me not fall off my bike. But, I need it! Also, I swam the 300 yards last night in 10 minutes. Pretty good for just learning how to swim two weeks ago, I think. Then Kari came along and swam it in seven minutes...but she has longer legs.

Oh, and here are some cute pics of Abram and Fido, the dog, just for fun. Fido had just gotten a haircut the day before. I still can't believe I paid $34 for this dog to get a bath, a hair cut, nails trimmed, teeth brushed, and anal glands expressed (gross!). That last one still gives me the heebie geebies.

Aren't you glad we had our little chat in front of Quizno's a few weeks ago? You are doing awesome! Keep it up! Feels goooood!

I applaud you from the comfort of my sofa! Way to go! I am so proud of you. Isn't it such a rip off to get your dog bathed? There is no way that I will tackle Nala anymore to do it since she is about half my size, so I guess it is money well spent. Love the cute pictures!
