Drill Sergeant-1; Recruits-2

Since Rick and I are in get fit mode, he decided to get the girls in on the action. Every evening after we read scriptures and have family prayer, it's push-up time. Alexis is totally INTO it and Julee is totally NOT! The first night Alexis wanted to try and do 100 but we made her stop at 10. Julee, on the other hand, agreed to start with 1. She is now up to 10 and much stronger than she thinks she is. Surprisingly (or not), mom is stuck with KP duty.....
1 drill sergeant, 2 drill sergeant....
An extra work out for the drill sergeant

Those were the days...

I was doing some pre-Spring (it has to be pre because it is only 3* out today - no Spring about that) cleaning today and came across some photos of the girls. I had forgotten how cute and adorable they were when they were little! These days they are not so little and though a bit of sass has replaced the adorable, I still think they are both super cute!
