So Sad the Weekend is Over

I finally managed to get most of the laundry and all of the dishes done. So sad that tomorrow begins another full week of work, kids at school, and appointments. Sometimes I feel like I need a vacation! Here's to hoping the baby stops crying, his eczema goes away, and the dogs don't bark all night.:)

Cross Country Club

My kids chose to participate in a running club at school. They practice twice a week in the mornings and have meets every Saturday at various elementary schools in the area. I have always been proud when they try and succeed in finishing a project even if they do not "win". However, a friend's child won today, we were sooo excited, but I then found out that my children, both of them, had walked rather than running the half mile. I was so surprised. Ha! no wonder they are never ever near the beginning or middle! I thought maybe they just weren't as gifted at running as other kids but no they actually chose not to run! Wild!

On a lighter note, the other parents noticed that one school in particular had 5-10 kids finishing in the top 15 in every race. We are trying to figure out why this is. One parent said it must be because they run their club like a boot camp. We watched them warm up and yes it looked like a high school team not elementary but I don't know if it truly is boot camp style. I am thankful that my children's coaches are more relaxed because, after all, it is meant to be fun not work.:)

Away Too Long

I forgot how relaxing it was to post! Baby is now hopping, not crawling, and trying to walk a bit. Big sisters are doing great in school and working hard at home. Hubby wants me to quit work altogether bc it would lower our tax bracket and actually free up money. Not sure what I will do.
