I suppose I should try out this blogging thing again.
It's been a while, so I may have forgotten how to do it.
Not that I ever really knew what I was doing.
I was supposed to finish describing our fabulous Disneyland trip-
should have had that all done and finished weeks ago :).
Our life schedule has been kicking my butt
and I am just now getting into the groove of it all.
I recall when my kids were all very little.
(We had 5 kids in just under 6 years- cuz we're cool like that).
I clearly remember thinking:
"Things will get easier once they are a little older"
Certain things do get easier.
No diapers, wipes, bottles, pacifiers.
They can entertain themselves (mostly) and can walk on their own (mostly).
I failed to realize that as kids get older,
they start DOING stuff.
That's when the "I'm always in the car" phase begins.
That's the phase we are in now.
As far as I can tell, it will last until all of my kids graduate.
Something to look forward to ;).
Good thing I love my kids...
and enjoy watching them participate in activities that they really love.
Speaking of loving my kids-
Today is my oldest baby's birthday!
My D-man is 10 years old!
Can't believe I have a 10 year old child.
I remember being 10.
I can't be old enough to have a 10 year old...
yet here I am :).
I am very lucky to have this boy.
He is a wonderful kid and the best oldest child a mom could ask for.
When he was little, I remember thinking that this whole motherhood
thing is a piece of cake- he was such an easy-going baby.
Even pretty much potty-trained himself.
He loves when I talk about his potty-training ;).
This is turning out to be the post about all the random things
that are going on in my brain right now.
Tomorrow I am headed off to the St. George Marathon!
So excited to do this race.
I don't know that I am completely prepared-
but it's happening even if I am not ready.
No real goals.
I just need to get 'er done.
I have managed to come in under 4 hours
in all 4 of my past marathons...
so I would love to get under 4 hours.
Wish me luck!
One more random topic.
I won a race medal hanger from Running on the Wall-
so all of my medals finally have a home!
(Terrible picture- sorry about that!)
I didn't get to choose which one I got and I probably
would not have chosen this particular one- but I love it!
I will be repeating this over and over come Saturday morning.
There is an empty hook just waiting for that St. George medal.
