Nice, Quiet Saturday's been such a nice and quiet day. We were sort of "sequestered" for most of the day today because of Tropical Storm Hanna. We were expecting much more rain than we actually got. We did have a period of a few hours with some pretty good winds, but for the most part were really spared. But it kept us home today with nowhere to go. And it was so nice! We played games, read books, painted, played a spiderman video game (well, the boys did...) - just were together. It was great!

There were only two down things about it. One was that Callie had a low fever today. She's finally getting another tooth up top, so I'm hoping that's what it is. The other was that it messed up my long run, which was supposed to be in the morning. But since we were under tornado watch, I thought it best to wait until the storm passed. I was able to do my 10 miles this afternoon, and I felt much better than I thought I would. I'm only 5 weeks away from my half-marathon, so I was a little worried, now that it's "kick it into high gear" time...but it felt good! The wind was a little rough at times, but it worked! My 9 last week was harder, so I was happy to have a good run.

So all in all, a great day. Of just quiet, family time. David got a good bit of his school stuff done, we had fun with the kids, and the sun should be back out tomorrow! :)
