Somehow this year has zoomed by and Brooke had her last day of school today.
I think she is pretty excited about pool days, snow cones and hours on the trampoline this summer. I am just as excited.
The beginning of the school year:
And the end of the school year! A few inches taller, a heck of a lot more talkative, thinks she is a lot more independent and still my favorite little human:)
Above hair curls came with a consequence = somehow I burned my arm (it looks worse in real life but I’m also just dramatic).
Why I feel the need to tell you everything? I do not have an answer.
While Brooke was at school I met up with Josse for 6 miles. While my breathing/cardio still feels like it is in recovery mode after the half-marathon last Saturday, we both felt that pep in our step again today which felt really nice. 6 miles @ 7:55 average pace.
Oh and Josse met me for the run after she already did a killer bike ride?!? She’s killing it and 9 more days until her half-ironman. Amazing. PS I do not understand how people run after a long bike ride… my legs are jello. After my century ride a few years ago I could barely walk for the rest of the day let alone go and run a ton of miles!
I got to see this little man for a few minutes today and his shoe game is strong.
And then I picked up the girls with a donut to celebrate the end of the year.
When I saw my sister this morning she was telling me about an amazing omelet that she made which left me craving eggs. I also wanted a sweet potato so I topped it with an egg scramble—> eggs, zucchini, green peppers, feta cheese and ground turkey. A close up of the meal = not pretty so instead I’ll leave you with this mountain of food.
And then the most exciting thing happened! I’ll have more details next week but I got a treadmill!!! I have had two treadmills in the past… the first one I left in California and then the second one resides (and is used daily) in my sister’s home (long story short—> when I moved from my parents’ house to my apartment on the fourth floor I couldn’t move the treadmill in so I put it in storage. While I was living in that apartment my sister had her baby and at the time she had ZERO ways to go for a run so I gave her my treadmill because I had a lot of different options of ways to run and I wanted her to keep running) SO now I have my own which will be amazing especially when I go back to teaching in a few years and I will be running in the early mornings while Brooke snoozes!
Also, I’ve had some questions about when we are getting a dog! We decided that we were going to wait a few more months because we are traveling a lot over the next few months (2-3 times each month) and will be gone a lot until the next school year starts! So we are going to wait until we are home more to be with the pup but until then I get a lot of quality time in with this chocolate lab (my boyfriend’s dog).
