On Saturday Andrew got put on call (his hospital is not busy yet and they are preparing for it to get busier in mid-May now) which meant that instead of running early, we all went together around lunchtime.
Skye experienced my favorite water fountain for the very first time.
Skye was in the jogging stroller and Brooke on her electric scooter for most of the run but then Brooke got in about a mile of running herself too.
Fifty miles for my week and a lot of them done with Brooke (on her bike/scooter/running). I was supposed to start coaching cross-country today at Brooke’s school but maybe I can convince the school to do it in the fall this year instead:) I was so excited to coach!
We got home and I found the most large and delicious cookie wrapped on my doorstep. It made for the perfect post-run fuel.
For almost our entire marriage Andrew has wanted to have a Harry Potter Marathon with me. I finally agreed and it might take us a few days to finish but I’m proud of myself for starting the journey;) Here he is showing you his Harry Potter twinner scar that he has on his wrist.
Next up… Sunday: We did our best to make Easter feel normal but we sure missed Knox and our families.
We did church at home.
Along with (multiple) Easter egg hunts!
My sister wins and she made extra pizza and dropped one off for us to cook at home.
The chicks had plenty of playtime. I’m not sure how much longer they will fit on Skye’s lap.
Just a few things to talk about before I let you go:
*Spring Break is now over and we are back to starting school again at home. Today we are adding in a cooking class because once I saw that Disneyland released their churros and dole whip recipe, I decided that this is crucial education for them:)
This blog post from Steph Bruce about the trials was amazing and it’s people like her that remind me to never quit dreaming.
*Brooke and I convinced Andrew to watch a Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen movie with us and he loved it
*Beth posted our exact budget right now:
*I came across this picture the other day and it made my feet just hurt looking at it. This was from my second marathon and I wore cotton Costco socks with racing flats I had never worn before and it rubbed the bottom of my feet so badly by the end that they were completely blistered. At the end of the race I couldn’t even wear one of my shoes anymore.
Since I miss making mistakes myself at races right now—> What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made during a race? Give me the details!
What movie could you watch over and over again?!
How long have you been staying at home now?
What was the best part of your weekend?
