Sneak peek

Last night we took some pics of baby girl who is graduating so we could print out some invitations...she of course showed some of her crazy personality...





Our only plans for the end of spring break are to work on 2, yes 2, science projects Amelia has...again I am over 5th grade!!! Donald has his last weekend class to finish his recertification which he should be completely done by May 30th!!  The class makes running early on Saturday outside even earlier since he has to leave around 8:(

New Shoes

I finally broke down and bought a new pair of running shoes, hopefully it will help the situation I am having with my feet.  I bought them from onlineshoes. Here we go......

Spring break -Monday

I love spring break, it always comes at exactly the right time.  It is a break in the getting up at 4am, running on the dreadmill, telling the girls 5293847 times to get up, rushing home from work to cook supper and spend 20 minutes with them before we all pass out and go through it again.

here I sit at 5:48 waiting until about 6, and hopefully for my blood sugar to come down a little, to go OUTSIDE and run.  I am trying my best to get back on a schedule/program and looking for a half maybe in May or June, however since I live way down south it has already peeped into the 90's......so the summer is coming.

2 month lapse

I am in no way going to try and catch up the last two months they have been packed.  All of our goals are still on track for the year.  We are so excited that this week is spring break and then just a few more until school is out for the summer.....thank goodness.  I am so over 5th grade!!

First, I won 3rd place in my age group at race yesterday.....I am so hoping there were at least 4......I was suppose to do the half but have had some terrible foot pain, Dr thinks nerve issues, so I opted for 5k.

 Avie keeps us on our toes, she has a LOT of energy and says things that make me cringe.  But she is also the sweetest child.
 Laurie finally had her baby (10 days late), Carlie is so pretty.  Melissa and I drove to Montgomery and back in about 14 hours.
 Ahh....the A-team all dressed up and maybe even getting along.
The school had the Spring Art show which included display of gifted projects.
Amelia was proud of her project.

 Field day was the end of last week, of course they were worn out.

Busy Busy Busy

The last month has flown by.  We had our first ever snow day in South Georgia...of course all we got was a teeny bit of freezing rain...my kids were stir crazy.





 We were all home the first day, the second day I braved the elements and went to my office.
 Avie is working so hard learning to ride her bike with no training wheels...however she usually gets to laughing so much she forgets to pedal.

 Amelia had her last Jr Pro game of the season.




 We went to a Blazers game in town, it has been years since I have gone to one.  The girls loved it.





 My bestie is moving so we had a little house warming shower for her.  I know she was giddy with all the items she gets to organize.
 There was a 5k at the girls school over the weekend.  Avie was pumped, her and Amelia signed up for the fun run and all she could talk about was how she was going to beat her.

She had to have a few pre race pics with ms Wanda.
 and with Anna
 Abby, Amelia and Brook
 I did the 5k...I forgot my watch...my time was like 30:30....I know I could have finished under 30..next time bring watch.
 family photo...and yes Amy and I had on the same outfit....only to confuse people who think we are twins.
 Finally it was time for the fun run....here they are getting lined up and directions.  Side note it had rained and the old gravel road through the campus has lots of little rocks and is slick.

 here they are, Avie is in light blue jacket....her very next step she wiped out...and then was ran over....her race was over:(




 She was super excited though when we brought her this chocolate milk
 Amelia has had to do a science experiment every 9 weeks at school.  So she set up to practice the one she has to do on Friday.

 And Avie doing her reading homework while I fold clothes.
