thisiscarrie Sometimes when you have older sisters, your "new" hand-me-down mountain bike is neon pink glitter and your parents have always said, "there are no 'boy colors' or 'girl colors', there are just colors" and it must have sunk in, at least a little bit, because you totally rock it better than any 7 year old boy could ever rock it. #lundellsride #overthehumpmtb #oth2015 #teamsparkle 1d

thisiscarrie It was a tough course for a little guy on a 16" single speed bike with foot brakes but the kid proved me oh so wrong. No tears. Just pure awesome the whole time he raced with the big kids at #overthehumpmtb race. #lundellsride 1d

thisiscarrie And just like that, #overthehumpmtb race season is over . On a happier note, #teamsparkle had a podium finish for the series! Congrats to my girl @lucille.marie_ for her second place finish overall in the Junior Girls division. #sparkleequalsspeed #teamsparklehasmorefun #sparklerides #lundellsride 2d

thisiscarrie We told him if he practiced riding his bike all summer then he could try riding with the big kids in the last #overthehumpmtb race of the season. He's been so looking forward to this moment. #therewillstillbeafewtearsimsure #teamsparkle #oth2015 #lundellsride 2d

thisiscarrie I'm not a huge baseball fan, but that was a great game....especially if you went to the game with Cubs fans like we did. #sorrydodgers #nohitter 3d

thisiscarrie The Honeybee's worked hard in the blistering heat at their lemonade stand on Saturday. With the support and generosity of great neighbors, awesome strangers, friends, family and church members, they made $120 to donate to @gp2c to help cure #RettSyndrome! #activitydays #lds 3d

thisiscarrie I love these four kids more than they could ever imagine but today, my first full day with all of them at school, has been totally awesome and i'm totally looking forward to this year. I consider my job as a mom is to help them have what they need to become fully independent, loving, confident and contributing members of society. So when I see them, one year older, going off happily by themselves to tackle the day, I don't feel sad, I just feel joy. And when they come back home this afternoon, we'll be happy to see each other and share the stories from our day. And to the people who keep asking me "what are YOU going to do all day?", I have these hashtags for you: #bonbonsandsoapoperas #justkidding #igotstufftodo #businesstorun #sparkletoshare #housetoorganize #languagestolearn #peopletomeet #placetogo #goalstoaccomplish 7d

thisiscarrie Sadly, our day mountain biking at @snowsummit was cut short. Hoping and praying they can get it contained quickly. #bigbear 2w

thisiscarrie The smile before I took him down some "scary for a 4 year old who only has foot brakes" hills. Then I took us a mile down in the wrong direction so we had to hike a bike back up. He may have lost his smile, but he handled it like a champ. #snowsummit 2w
