Family Fun

 As many of you well know we as a Beaman Clan got together and participated in our own Triathlon.  It was a LOT of fun.  We all accomplished something and finished it with our teammate.  We rode our bikes to the YMCA and that is where we started our 500 yd swim.  Biked from YMCA to Kingwood Drive to Mills Branch Road and then to Gille home.  Then we began our run. I wasnt able to run because of doctors orders, only low impact activities so they kindly allowed me to wear roller blades. 
Before the race began

On our way to YMCA

Matts earmuffs....speedo

Waiting at the light

Garret obviously killed us all. I told him he better find a wife who can compete because thats my expectation :)  It wasnt about winning or losing but having fun and being together as a family.  Thanks fam for a fun filled day! 

Here is a video of each couple finishing.

Garret finished at the start so we didnt have an actual legit finish for him. He basically went half way running on the run and walked the rest he was that far ahead.

Garret left us on monday :( so the night before tyson and taylor left we all went to red robin and dave & busters. So FUN. Blake and Ashley came with Taylor and Riley.  It was actually Riley's 4th birthday!

Birthday Boy!

I like guns!
Tryin to be like Dad

Tis the Season

First off, I LOVE this time of the year.  The lights, the decorations, the music, the weather and most of all the giving of presents.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by great family and friends.

I started my long term sub job at Creekwood Middle School.  I am coaching 7th grade basketball and then have 6th grade PE. I have been in it for the past week and I LOVE it.  We have already played 2 games and we won both of them! yahoo! I am so proud of the girls. Itll be great to see their growth over the season. Truly there is nothing more rewarding than seeing kids in my job succeed and accomplish things they never thought possible.  

I cant wait to see my family over Christmas break.  We are going to have so much fun! I am almost done desgnin the Tri-hard shirts.  So fun!

I will be using the font of the names on the left

Felt inclined to share this quote. Gave me warmth. It is by Dieter F Uchtdorf

"The things we hope in sustain us during our daily walk. They uphold us through trials, temptations, and sorrow. Everyone has experienced discouragement and difficulty. Indeed, there are times when the darkness may seem unbearable. It is in these times that the divine principles of the restored gospel we hope in can uphold us and carry us until, once again, we walk in the light.

"We hope in Jesus the Christ, in the goodness of God, in the manifestations of the Holy Spirit, in the knowledge that prayers are heard and answered. Because God has been faithful and kept His promises in the past, we can hope with confidence that God will keep His promises to us in the present and in the future. In times of distress, we can hold tightly to the hope that things will 'work together for [our] good' (D&C 90:24) as we follow the counsel of God's prophets. This type of hope in God, His goodness, and His power refreshes us with courage during difficult challenges and gives strength to those who feel threatened by enclosing walls of fear, doubt, and despair."
