Yep, the run/walk method is just what my body is starting to need at this point in pregnancy. I just took a walking break as often as I wanted throughout my run and felt much better the entire time! 6 miles of running at 9:31 average pace.
Grandma School was pushed back until today this week because my mom was gone visiting one of my brothers so we started our morning of remote learning with recess (because once it hits 90 degrees, I’m not going outside:).
They also competed in some races while we were at the park.
Then we started school. I am finding that delicious snack breaks are needed for everyone that is involved on these days at home.
What reading time started out looking like…
And what it looked like by the end…
Skye thoroughly enjoys having Brooke and Knox home all day.
We definitely gave each other a high-five at the end of the school day… I feel like we deserved it.
Let’s talk about some of my favorite things this week!
*CLK recommended that I try these e-cloth window cleaning packs when I was talking about how I couldn’t find window cleaner anywhere! They leave zero streaks on the windows and I never have to buy window cleaner again or waste paper towels. These are amazing and I wish I had started using them a long time ago.
*I don’t know why but new water bottles make me feel like I’ve won the lottery. I love a good water bottle (and thankfully I love water again). Andrew and I bought the Stanley cups and we are obsessed. This is the one Andrew got and this is the one I got (40 oz). I love having a big handle on mine. I’m not sure I know how to drink water without a big straw anymore ha… I’m addicted. It keeps our drinks really cold all day and they fit perfectly in my car’s cupholders. My nieces are always happy when I get a new water bottle because then they inherit my old ones:)
*Julie posted about this Water Drawing Doodling Mat and so I got one for Skye to help keep her entertained while we work with the older kids on school. She isn’t quite old enough to understand the stencils etc yet but she has a blast coloring all over the mat with all of the different tools that it comes with… and I get to enjoy the fact that it doesn’t create a mess because all you need is water!
*Another beauty product from my sister. Her self-tanning lotion always looks so good so I decided to get what she has and I’m loving it. Of course it is a good deal for what you get (my sister is the best bargain shopper on the planet) and it does a great job lasting a few days before I have to reapply it. My sister uses it on her face and body!
*A few of you told me to not give up yet on Skye napping and I wish I could give you a hug right now because I am so happy… She napped yesterday!
Tell me about your favorite beauty product lately!!
What type of water bottle do you use the most and love?!
I always ask what your least favorite thing/room is to clean… but what is your favorite thing to clean?
-I kind of find cleaning my kitchen (wiping counters/appliances and mopping) at night to feel kind of relaxing which sounds strange.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
