Another W! and a cute Analise story

4th March 2008

Brian’s second race of the season was yesterday.  It was #2 in the series of 3 training races starting off the season.  Long story short… he’d hoped to launch one of his teammates into the breakaway, but that didn’t pan out very well.  So Brian took off with another guy on his wheel, and the two of them broke away, and Brian won the sprint.  Another win!  Another $25!  Hehe.  Hopefully the good riding will continue and the prize money will get a little better 🙂

Last night was another stormy night, nearly identical to last week.  No tornado sirens, though, thankfully.  But Analise doesn’t like thunder, so she was in and out of our bed several times.  We’ve struggled with her dragging bedtime out, with one request after another, up and down.  Tonight, she was really good, though, only getting out of bed once to tell me something.  Yeah! 

Her teacher told me about this moment from school:
Analise and her friend Laurel got into a little disagreement, and Analise was upset.  She cried a little to Miss Brenda, and told her, "I don’t like Laurel.  I don’t want to sit by her.  I don’t want to be her friend."
Miss Brenda said, "Now, Analise, what does our Bible verse say about that?"
Analise sighed a BIG sigh. "Be kind to one another."
Miss Brenda: "Yes, and is it kind to say that you don’t want to be her friend?"
Another BIG sigh from Analise. "No.  But sometimes my mouth says things that my head doesn’t want to say." 
How true is that, from the mouth of a 3 1/2 year old??
