The muddiest girl around...

The girls and I are competing in a race this weekend, a race complete with biking, running and MUD - lots and lots of MUD. I cant wait. Keely can't wait. 

Abby - well, Abby is concerned she will get dirty. 

This is the same girl who went creek walking for a week at Girl Scout camp. The same girl who crawled in the lake a few weeks back and trudged through mud to get to the lake. Didn't think twice. 

But this race, this race means W-O-R-K. It means getting T-I-R-E-D. It means getting S-W-E-A-T-Y and M-U-D-D-Y and she isn't looking forward to it. 

Which means, as you may have guessed, that yours truly is gonna make darn sure she is the MUDDIEST OF ALL OF US! We're talking face down, mud in the underwear kindof muddy. 

I can't wait. And despite what she claims, she is going to have fun and I personally hope this is the first of many races with them!!! :) 

I love my girls - this is gonna be great!! 
Even if I have to wake them before 6am to get to the race.
(I haven't dropped that bomb on them yet!)
I know how to pick my battles!
