*It was just the two of us yesterday and Skye really wanted to show off how cool her tongue is to you:
*We had a pretty low-key day together. We went to church with my sister and her family and hung out at home!
*Grapes + cottage cheese are back in my life and if you haven’t tried it yet, you need to.
*I laughed so hard when I saw this and thought about the bag of spinach that I buy at Costco each time…
*I started feeling some back pain the other day. It doesn’t happen when I am running and I realized it only happens when I am carrying Skye. I always put her on my left hip. I think I really put that hip out to carry her around and that is what is causing it. Time to switch it up and carry her on my right hip (and let her walk a lot more too:).
*Best post-run idea from Emilee. She put a frozen one of these in her car to drink when we finished our long run. She shared some with me and WOW… it was so refreshing after 16 miles. Try it.
*Why carry one blanket around when you could carry three?
*Skye officially folds her arms for the entire prayer now. Then when we say amen she starts clapping because she is so proud of herself.
*We love this little free library that one of our neighbors has for everyone to use.
*I keep the countdown to the marathon on my computer at all times now (picture below from yesterday:). As of today we are 10 weeks and 5 days away!
We have a trip planned for next month and I cannot wait. We are going to Grand Cayman with the kids (if any of you have been there then please send me your tips of things to see and food to eat)! Our good friends have a house there and they invited our family to go with their family. We found cheap flights and Andrew was able to arrange his work schedule (and work a bunch of shifts leading up to the trip) so he could leave and boom… beach time here we come. I’ll keep up with my running there but probably won’t get in a long run. Sometimes you just have to remember that it’s better to show up to the starting line a little undercooked vs overcooked.
Knox already has a passport and we took the girls the other day to get their passports for the trip too. Brooke looks angry (they told her no smiling) and Skye was a bit offended that they made her take out her top knot for the picture.
The key was having Brooke go first because once Skye see’s Brooke do something, then she will try to mimic her as much as she possibly can.
The flight there is going to be very entertaining with Skye but it will all be worth it to play on the beach all day, right? Oh and here’s to hoping that Skye will start liking the sand on this trip!

Has anyone reading been to Grand Cayman? Give me all of the details please:)
Anyone reading with kids that hate (or used to hate) the sand… When did they stop hating the sand?
Those of you with little ones… do you naturally carry them on your left or right side?
Cottage cheese—> delicious or terrible? What do you add to it?
