Raygen is an old pro at this and loves it! She loves the triathlon and would do them all the time if she could. The older you get the father you have to go, so hers has become more of a challenge. Rylee's race was right before hers and she wanted to run with her. I didn't let her but she did run with Alize and Taylor when it was their turn to cheer them on. It is always a good workout for us. Tracy ran with Rylee and I ran with Raygen and Taylor. We love this family activity!
Bless her little heart. We as parents were not prepared for this one. In fact we only found out about it 4 days before. So there was no training or do we have the right kind of bikes for the girls. However they finished and did not give up. Rylee was tired when it was all said and done. She wants to know if she can skip it next year. We will see when it gets closer.She does like having a medal and showing it to everyone.
See what I mean about the bike. Her tires have been flat (well lets just say a little to long) and we didn't realize how much she had grown. We have been a little preoccupied with life. Poor thing is this what they talk about being the middle child? I hear the end up faring the best in life, as I know she will! I just wanted to squeeze her she was so cute in the water with her swimming cap on! Alize goes to school with them, Raygen and Rylee are in the middle, and Taylor (their aunt) is on the end.
The story really began the day the prince found the damsel in distress.
Though this prince was courting another maiden, he unhappy within his own heart. As luck would have it, the maiden who he was courting presented him to the damsel in distress.
After soothing words, the two of them realized that their castles were near one another’s in the land of West Side. “Oh prince, I see you wait for the next caravan to take you on your travels home, but I have a horse and stage coach of mine own in which I could have you a ride.”
From this point on, the prince and the damsel rode throughout the land together. The joy in their journeys however, made the prince realize how unfulfilling his present courtship was. He realized that the birds sang their songs louder when he was around the damsel, but often only heard the sound of the woodpecker when around the maiden.
Before long, the prince left the maiden to be with the damsel. They continued to court one another until the year 999, when they brought their hearts together in marriage. As the years past, the prince and princess had children who only fulfilled their lives even more.
And they lived happily ever after.
