Yesterday we had a much needed official day off from school. And our entire family got haircuts, all seven of us! Jimmy took the boys to the barber shop, and I took the girls to the beauty shop. Everyone looks great! The girls all got about one centimeter trimmed (that's all they ever want), and I got a somewhat different style--a little bit off the length and lots of layers. I was so overdue a haircut! My friend Kathy who lives three hours away asked me to put a picture up on my blog so she could see it. I will try to do that at some point.
I also visited a friend with a new baby (I loved that I smelled like a baby for most of the day after holding him!), got the oil changed in my van, and bought some fabric to make a new apron. The weather was beautiful here yesterday, and Jimmy took Clay and Leah for a run at the park. Leah is training for her very first 10K--the Coke 10K in May. She is following the plan that Coke Commit to Be Fit has published on Facebook. This week's assignment is to run/walk for 20 minutes, three times this week. She is doing great! I plan to run this race with her.
Today is back to school and a meeting for Sam's homeschool kindergarten graduation! I cannot believe that my youngest child will be finishing kindergarten this year. Next year I will have a 12th grader and and 1st grader---so I will be finishing up my homeschool days with one, and really just beginning with another. I wonder if I can do this for twelve more years? Of course I can! There isn't anything else I would rather be doing! :)
I haven't exercised for a week now! Since finishing Insanity I have taken a break to let my body rest and recover. I am planning on starting back running in a couple of days.
On another note, I have had a stressful situation to deal with over the last two weeks. My husband, children, family, church family, and dear friends have been overwhelmingly supportive and loving. I will probably blog about the whole ordeal.....I just need to get my thoughts together. So to my readers who know me in real life: THANK YOU!
I hope you all have a wonderful day!
