The Triplets end an era for parents....

OK, we always knew the kids would change our lives... but THIS is REALLY HARD...

We have sold our motorcycles:( The CFO's went away with it's new owner Tuesday night and mine is leaving next Tuesday... with a Pastor no less.... talk about a message from God! We had such a great time with our bikes in Seattle! Now the decision comes whether or not to sell the gear. I alone own two jackets, chaps, pants, rain pants, a jump suit, and three or four pairs of gloves. Well, we are starting Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University in two weeks at church so I guess the timing is right. Stupid logic... Sell what you don't need or don't use... it goes against Manhood! No more toys for us big kids, for a while. Don't worry, we will ride again when the kids are out of the house or at least when we can leave them home alone:)

Some pics so you can appreciate what we are loosing.... they are.. were.. beautiful bikes! Mine was the silver one and the CFO's was black and blue.

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

I love Dave Ramsey!! He's why we have a home with a 15 yr. mortgage instead of 30. Have fun with your class, I know you'll do great!

Oi, I chose to sell my 84 Monte Carlo SS once the gas prices and maintenance started to skyrocket. Ah, big toys going away, but not forgotten.

Besides, I do like the stow and go spots in the minivan. :)
