The weather around here has been so confusing, but last night we had a taste of summer in the air. It was a beautiful day. It reminded me that we have done nothing in way of preparing for our garden or our pool, and I am sadly behind on my mental game in summer preparations for the kids. I feel like it will get more difficult to keep kids entertained as they get older....
But, we will have 16 baby chicks to look after in the coming months. I always say I won't bring them in the house, but then they are so small and I want to keep an eye on them....and the next thing you know....they've taken over....and I'm that crazy chicken lady.
I ran a 5K last week. I came in first in my age group--cause I'm old--with a time of 26 minutes and 10 seconds. I was pretty happy. I've been running, but not 'training' and the night before I was told to 'carb load'--but instead I went out with a friend for scallops and beer.
All's well that ends well, I guess.
My son runs cross country and track, and he also ran in last weekend's 5K. He finished with enough time to get a banana and backtrack through the course to run with me to the finish, shouting encouragement...and eating his banana.
This same son ran in districts for his high school this week, his 4x800 relay team came in first and will go to states next week!
