Birds of a Feather...


Seriously... God weaves DNA together in adoption...


Especially that "Goofy Strand" (it's an official scientific term)...


Look at these two.


They're nuts.


The both of them.


They're wacky.


Individually insane.


But collectively crazy.


And I love every single thing about who they are.

Stay crazy guys!

Love this crew and their craziness...

You find a camera to look at and bust the most dapper diaper pose you can manage - that's what!

And ain't nobody better at it than Z-Dogg!


Bust a move Z!

Race Day!


They got new shoes. They got new bright jerseys.

They focused and trained hard at practice...

And finally it was here... RACE DAY!


After a quick team photo...


and some easy warm up jogging...


They headed to the starting line full of anticipation and excitement mixed with a little bit of nervousness.


Then it was "On your mark... get set... GO!"


And they were off!


I love that their first real race was in the shadows of the Rockies at around 7,000 feet! They're gonna be so much better at this than I EVER could be!


Pretty soon they were heading up the last leg towards the finish line!


I can't tell you how excited I was for them for sticking to it!


I mean - both my girls were leaving some boys in the DUST!


Then it was the water line to recoup and recover...


and to get their coveted finisher's ribbon!


Meron had named their running duo eFART - Ethiopian Fast Action Racing Team - and they just pulled off their first race!

Girls - mommy and daddy couldn't be any prouder!

keep running eFART... KEEP RUNNING!

Rolling With No Help!


Today - a certain somebody hit the street for a little bike riding with the support of her big sis and mommy.

But with a twist...


Look close... NO TRAINING WHEELS!


Mommy got her rolling no problem...


And did the phantom "I got you, i got you!"


And then... BOOM! It was official - she was riding with no help!


Next up was the attempt at starting by herself.

Mommy got her set up... and she was off!


A little wobbly at first...


But she got it! And mommy indicated TOUCHDOWN!


And held the celebration pose while Mebbie rode all the way down the street!


Mebbie - I TOLD you that you could do this girl! Soon enough we'll be rolling three deep on our bike rides!

So proud of you big girl!

Six Times Around


This girl right here has ENDLESS energy. Endless I tell you.

This morning - possibly helped out by the "donuts for breakfast" daddy provided - she was on SUPER 10. Barely able to contain herself.

Mommy's answer?

"Go run 6 laps around the circle outside..."
Problem solved folks!


Meron headed out the door with zero hesitation.

I heard her tell our neighbor, "My mom said I need to run around the circle 6 times..."


And then she was gone!


Our neighbor was smiling while Meron was SMOKING a trail around that circle!

The last lap she literally sprinted all out...


Funny thing? It didn't really poop her out. Maybe for like 5 minutes...

But it was Saturday folks - and this girl doesn't rest on a weekend!

Way to stay crazy, Meron!

The B-I-B-L-E...


"They stand alone on the word of God... the B-I-B-L-E!"

I love that they love their bibles.

Never stop seeking the truth little homies!
