local pro tweets a pic of the boys!


Steve Fisher, a local pro racer, took this super cute photo of the boys at the last race.  The Golazo energy drink team regularly fuels our little competitors with their natural ingredient hydration drink...I let the kids drink a full one, much to their surprise, and it's like the best treat ever for them. I don't mind, because the hydrating drink is full of good stuff, not crap!   I really think we should strike a sponsorship deal here....Are you listening Golazo?  Are ya?

first day 2015

due to a teacher's strike (that we fully supported!), the kids didn't start school this year until September 17th (same day as our 10 year wedding anniversary. wow!).  they were itching to get back to school, and here they stand, on this first day of clouds and rain, and first grade and fourth grade.  we didn't walk either one of the kids to their classrooms, they were perfectly content to be on their own.  luca said he thought he might cry, but there were no tears (except from mom, who is a big ol' crying baby when it comes to just about anything).  i love how independent the boys are becoming. 
all ready for mrs goldfarb!

mr lommers already knows this kid....easy transition here!

hello first grader!

MFG cyclocross, race #1

it's here folks...cyclocross season (also referred to as "cx").  the kids have cx bikes, they have cx racing kits, they have cx fever!  here they are, getting ready for a juniors race, which had them on the course for 30 minutes, 3 laps.  in comparison, i raced 38 minutes, 5 laps (not a lot more!).  love these racing dudes, their enthusiasm keeps me coming back for more...
