Last week was relaxing and full of family, food and fun. We spent the week in southern California with my family for our family reunion. My parents host one every two years, since all six of us siblings are spread all over the country it’s fun to spend this time together. We pick a different location every couple years, but I have to admit, this one was one of my favorite. The view from our house was amazing and no one can argue about running right along the beach!
I sprained my ankle by falling on the beach the first night we were there. It hurt so bad the next day, but I just couldn’t let it slow us down. It also helps that I know a pretty cute podiatrist. I took a day off running and we did a little site seeing in San Diego.
I fell a tiny bit short of my 20 miles a week goal last week, but I did take a day off for my foot and spent one day sitting for 10 hours in the car. (blah!)
The summer is wrapping up entirely too fast at this point. Yesterday I took each of the four school kids individually to buy their school supplies. It was fun taking them each by themselves and seeing each of their different personalities (but man, it took all day!). Then we packed and got them all ready. The boys are off to the bow hunt this weekend and then school starts!
I’m not ready to let them go!
I finished a couple good books this last week too….some of which are advanced reader copies that come out soon. I’m excited to share them with you! I guess I’m a little ready to get back to routine and schedules.
When do your kids start school?
Are you ready for then go head back?
