This week has been incredibly busy. We had a baseball game Monday night! They won 22-3 and Diggs played awesome! As well as the whole team I should say, they really have a great time out on the field. Hopefully I can actually get some good photos one of these days. I get so caught up in watching the kids I forget to take them!
Tuesday we had 8th grade graduation. From where I was sitting I couldn’t get any pictures of Dare but he got many awards for his academic skillz and has really had a lot of growth as a young man in the last year. When we were done with his ‘graduation’ we headed to the house to change and get in a few miles! I love running with him. We get to talk about so much. As we ran we talked about everything from coffee, to family, to school. We joked and laughed. Next thing you know an easy 3 miler turned into a 3 mile progression run with the last mile a little faster than what I probably should have been running. 🙂 oops! It didn’t feel hard and we had a good time so I don’t regret it. Plus, that kid can move so I always run a little faster with him since my semi-fast is his easy pace.
And yesterday…it was the last day of school for my kids. This means I got to attend a certain little ladies 2nd grade graduation. She is so excited to move to a different school and be a ‘big’ 3rd grader. She gave all the staff hugs as she walked out of the school. 🙂 It warms my heart to see her be so loving and compassionate toward others.
After graduation and finishing up working from home, Dare and I headed out for a Fartlek. We had a great time and when he runs his ‘fast’ intervals it makes me push a little harder since I am getting my ass handed to me by my own son at the time! 🙂 It’s probably just because he is taller than me so his legs reach farther right? He can’t actually be faster than me!! 😉 These pics show his rapid growth over the last year and a half.
The one thing I haven’t been able to do much of lately is hang with this guy.
Life is so busy with kid stuff in the spring I have had a lot of come and go type of days. I am either at a game, just got back from one or working out at most times each evening. He also works a couple of weekends each month which doesn’t help but it is his passion and he loves it completely so I can’t complain. We had a little time to hang out and have some wine a few days ago and this weekend he will be heading to Ohio with me for Savage Race!! Neither of us have ever participated in this OCR before so it will be new for the both of us. I am excited to get out for the weekend and the kids are ready to watch us!
One last thing…anyone know where to get super cute dresses for a ‘fairytale’ type of photo shoot. My good friend is going to be taking KK’s pictures on a ‘unicorn’ next month and I would like to get her something flowing and gorgeous. She has said she wanted a purple dress. I am thinking tulle or such. And I don’t want to spend a ton! HELP! 🙂 I had to caffeine up just to start looking for some.
She was only excited about the dress! lol!
