Livin' the Life

Just a few pics of the goings-on at the Luke residence...

I just thought this was funny.  Those are noise cancelling headphones that Regan is wearing, so, of course, the volume on the TV was totally jacked up.  To make it even more interesting, guess what she was watching?  
Yep, the Antique Roadshow on PBS.

Hadyn has probably been a little neglected in recent posts, with a baptism and a birthday for Regan.  She got ready for school the other day and came out of her room and I was suddenly hit with how fast she is growing up.  
This is not a picture of my baby...where did little Hadyn go?

We found that we have a slightly lackadaisical tooth fairy here.  
It took her two days to come get Regan's two teeth that came out. 
In what I am sure was an attempt to make up for/release some guilt over the incident, she left two intricately folded dollars.  
Regan thought it was awesome and can't wait to see what else the tooth fairy can do on the next tooth...
I bet the tooth fairy is a little nervous since, I bet, that was the only origami she knew...

This weekend we got all of our Saturday work done quickly, mostly by choosing to put it off, but that is another post...so we went for a ride on the greenbelt.  It was, as always, fun.  The most exciting thing was that Regan rode her own bike the whole time.  This may seem less-than-exciting unless you understand that Regan DOES NOT do anything she is not immediately good at.  Luckily, she is a natural at most things, but riding a bike was not one of those things.  She's been able to ride for some time, but has never liked doing it.  Just the last week or so she has been actually having fun riding around our subdivision.  The greenbelt was her first time with crowds and a narrow space (since there are two lanes of opposing traffic).  
She did great and rode over three miles.  
She crashed and burned once, but that was my fault.  
I know, super mom.  
Hadyn got the sweet ride in the bike trailer.  
Someday I'm going to find a bike trailer I can ride in.  
It seems like a very relaxing way to travel.

It was fun to hear how things are going at your house!

She may be slow, but you've got a pretty fancy tooth fairy! Hadyn is really growing up! She's quite a little model!

Just so you know, I miss you. AND I need the tooth fairy to teach me origami. (I'm not kidding.)

man, your tooth fairy is way more generous than ours. it's quarters here - and no origami. :)

calvin loves riding his bike, but it was only recently he'd let us take off the training wheels. hello, he was almost 8! he also has a fear of messing up. think they're related?

Man, we aren't even going to recognize you guys if you show up here. I want dates!n David is out of town so frequently, I would like to have an excuse to make him stay. We are so excited to see you. By the way, my oldest son, like the tooth fairy, is an excellent origami master. Just so ya know.
