Not much exciting has been going on around here, just the typical summer activities.....since we break from school for 2 months, our routine is pared down to chores, Bible lesson, read aloud, swim, and run. Yesterday we spent a good part of the day at our church building preparing my classroom for VBS. I met 2 friends there, and our children played while we worked. Olivia and Julie were big helps! Also yesterday Olivia read the entire book, The Bronze Bow, and Julie cooked our supper. The menu was tuna noodle casserole, Caesar Salad with homemade dressing, and pistachio cake. The recipes were from her new American Girl Julie cookbook.
As you can see, I have changed my blog background.....with step by step coaching from my sister-in-law Megan on the telephone. Thanks Megan!
I am up to running 2 miles without any significant pain. I am signed up for a 5K June 28th. I will be pushing Leah and Sam in the jogging stroller which makes running a little more difficult. The race is in Memphis, so I won't have a babysitter to watch them on the sidelines while I run. Jimmy plans to jog back to get the stroller from me after he finishes the race. I hope I have run at least 2 miles when he finds me!!
