They told me they do planks in PE so we did a plank challenge together. It won’t be long until they are beating me in this challenge. They are strong.
I started out the morning with 9.09 miles with some new snow but I’m proud to say I made it through an entire winter (I’m telling myself this was the last snow day) without falling while running. PS I was having a dream that Andrew and I were on vacation in Hawaii when my alarm clock went off and I quickly realized there was snow outside and we won’t be traveling for a long time…
I was eating some oatmeal in front of the computer and it took me back to the beginning of my blog when I posted at least one picture a day of my oatmeal in front of my computer back when I was a high school teacher. Now I am attempting to help teach 1st and 2nd grade but still love oatmeal.
Andrew has really gotten good at doing the girls hair…
We took the kids up to the hills for them to run around for a bit and get out some energy. My fully gray outfit courtesy to the fact I was freezing out there and grabbed Andrew’s coat.
The dirt just magically makes my kids want to run and I completely understand why.
The other highlight of their day was the hot tub of course. We won’t have Knox for 10 days starting on Monday so we are really trying to soak in time together and luckily, Andrew doesn’t have to work until then so we will get a lot of time all together this weekend.
Our highlight was eating adult lunchables and watching A Million Little Things together. I haven’t made it through one episode of that show without crying and I don’t think that will ever change.
A little update from my parents because I miss sharing all of our get togethers. They are doing really well staying inside all day besides walks with their pup. I think everyone’s dogs are very happy about this new situation because of all of the quality time.
Let’s talk about just a few things I’m loving this week and I would love to hear yours too (affiliate links are included):
*I finished this book and it was SO good if you like crazy thrillers. My heart rate was elevated for the last 75% of the book ha. I definitely did not expect the storyline in the slightest.
Also, reading while eating pizza is one of my favorite activities;)
*Last week on TriedAndTrueMoms IG (I love their account!) they shared this Dome Play Center and I knew my kids would love it. They miss going to parks a ton (it’s the thing they miss doing the most right now) so I’m trying to help our backyard feel more like a park. It took about 1.5 hours to assemble.
*John Krasinski started a Youtube channel to share good news and this clip made me sob happy tears. Please watch it if you have a chance. We need more good news!!
*I’ve really wanted the kids to journal a lot during this time so they can look back on this time of life and remember what it was like. We are being very diligent with these Q & A books because it is so interesting to see how much their answers vary at this time of life compared to when life was normal.
Are you reading more or less during this time? What are you reading right now and do you like it?
Let’s talk about spending money… do you find yourself spending the same as you usually do, more or less during this time?
Do you journal? Are you journaling more now than usual?
Oatmeal fan? What do you add into it?
