It's been a good morning so far. David's almost done with school - the kids are all done, and the teachers are just tearing down their classrooms and finishing up paperwork now. My kids have SO enjoyed getting to see him for a little bit in the mornings - Callie actually cried when he left for work this morning!! I decided to postpone my run this morning and do it inside at the other Y. We were meeting several of our friends from small group at the "other" pool, so we went early and I did my 5 miles inside on the treadmill. I will say that it was a nice break from the heat outside. With it being so hot this last week, my runs have been so HARD - very draining and tired, which has been frustrating for me. So it was great to have a good, hard, FAST run today - it was my fastest time for 5 miles, so that was exciting! And I LOVE getting to jump in the pool after a good workout. The kids and I headed out to the pool and it was so refreshing!!! It's always sort of hard for me to have "play dates" at the pool - I never am able to sit and chat with the moms because I'm keeping up with my kids. But it's just nice to have little bits of conversation here and there, and see all the kids playing around and swimming together, so I'm thankful nonetheless. I really love going to the pool with my kids - I love playing with them, and seeing their faces when they accomplish new things and learn new tricks. I am so glad they love the water as much as I do!
We're making plans to go to the ballpark tonight. It's "Turn Back the Clocks" night there - all the hot dogs, soda, and popcorn (always STALE!) is only 25 cents! We go every year - sort of a tradition. Should be fun!!! The kids are all asleep now, the house is quiet....aaaahhhh....such a nice morning.
