Oh my goodness… I keep hearing everyone say, “where did the summer go?” “yikes, the summer flew by!” “what a summer!” I get it, we are in the middle of July, but we have an entire 5 full weeks (except for a select few) of summer before we have to get back in the grind of getting ready for a new school year! ENJOY IT!!
I haven’t written on the blog in a while, I swear I am doing more now than I do during the school year, that I don’t have time to sit in front of the computer!
Just a little recap of what I have done so far this summer….not a TON, but enough!
First…I realized I didn’t post any pictures from the Hot Mess Express Train Crawl! If you didn’t attend this year and know someone who went on it I am pretty sure they had fun….so next year make sure you are on it! Oh yeah, don’t forget, you have to be female and you have to be a Cary or Fox River Grove Resident (or somewhere close to that). Mark your calendars now….tentative date is Friday, June 3rd, 2016!!! BOOK IT!!!
A 10k run with PJ…he made it look easy…..and then he got a little over confident a few weeks later for the 5k and wanted to do it WITHOUT mom as the “pacer”….
Then it was to Myrtle Beach for a lot of Baseball and some family time. I would have to say that I wasn’t in LOVE with the accommodations (jim told me after checkout that he killed 3 cockroaches), but we had a GREAT time. We were right on the ocean and the big kids loved the beach. It took Emma until about day 3 to figure out that it was kind of fun to play in the sand, but she definitely takes after her father (and her mom a bit too) when it comes to sand! We were so lucky, we have a GREAT group of families that enjoy being around each other!
Normally by this time of the summer JIm and I are dreading August and are sick of each other, but THIS summer has been good! I have no idea what it is….but we might just have this MARRIAGE thing figured out….we only want to kill each other a little bit! HA! I know, we will never have it completely figured out, but it has been fun this summer!
Now…It’s the end of July and it’s time to SQUEEZE everything else in for the next 5 weeks! I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! I’m enjoying sleeping in a few extra mornings, but definitely letting the workouts slip on the off days!
Remember- class Tuesdays and Fridays at 5:15 and try to get a hill run in on Thursdays!!
Sorry for all the pictures, but that is more fun sometimes than reading!
PLEASE text me or email any pictures from your vacations…I would love to post and share them!!!
