We have been having beautiful weather here recently -- and we have all been LOVING it!! The kids enjoyed the zoo yesterday morning and playing at the park in the afternoon... I even picked the kids up from school on Friday in their stroller! It was fun -- I walked there with an empty stroller (and got a few strange looks from people wondering where my kids were) -- and the kids enjoyed a nice walk home in the sunshine :)
Here is Evelyn before church this morning -- she is funny -- she somehow knew today was Sunday so as soon as we got up she said "okay -- put my tights on -- it is time to go to church!!" She definitely knows the routine.
In running news... I'm doing it. The Mercer Island Half Marathon. Well, I still haven't decided whether I am going to do the 10K or the half marathon... but I am going to do something. The run benefits colon cancer prevention -- which is very near and dear to my heart.
I am finishing up Week 8 in the 12 week training program for the half. So far -- so good -- but I still have more mileage to build up. 2 things scare me though...
- this is a hilly course. It will be scenic -- but tough. A friend told me to avoid the island races due to their elevation changes... I chose this race anyway, hopefully I won't regret it!
- I have been having a little bit of tenderness in my right ankle... I took a few days off, hoping that will help :)
I keep thinking "if my dad can go through painful surgeries and chemo, I can surely do this!!"

Well... 2 days last week Evelyn didn't cry when Travis left her at school (I was out of town). This morning she cried -- but at the end of the day, her teacher said that she had a great day. I could tell when I got there that she had fun... she immediately started telling me about playing with Play-doh, learning about horses, painting a horse, etc. We are making progress :)
I LOVE all the new activities that the kids are being exposed to at their new school!! The arts & crafts are fantastic! Here is what Noah made us for Valentine's day:
All for now -- the kids passed along a bug that took hold in my throat -- so I am going to try to kill it with some Nyquil and a good night's rest!

Let's just say that it has been a stressful week. The kids started a new "school" on Monday, and it is proving to be a little challenging for Evelyn. I fully expected this to happen -- I thought Noah would be fine... and he is. We get to the childcare center, I ask him if he wants to go play... he happily yells "YEAH!!" and runs away to play with the toys.
