A couple weekends ago I ran in my first race. Unfortunately it wasn't timed, but it was a lot of fun! I think the most fun part of it, for me, was that I was passing a lot of the other runners. I started (Just a random guess) about at the six or so heat. I also started at the very beginning of the heat. In which the heats were started in five minute intervals. So the fact that I caught up with other people who were running in the race was a huge confidence builder to myself.
I was really disappointed that I was not covered in more color. I suppose I should have slowed down in the areas that they were throwing the powdered paint. Maybe even should of looked like I wanted to have paint thrown on me? I know I tend to look stand offish. So I can only imagine the look on my face while running through the clouds of powdered paint. While I subconsciously, with a flare of a hypochondriac worrying if I would find out that I was allergic. Or worried about what the long term effects of breathing in this powder would have on me. Anyway I made it out alive with very little paint on me and so far I haven't fallen terminally ill.
In other news my kids are growing up on me. Extremely fast. To the point that when I took Emma's bassinet apart and her baby swing along with several much needed items, I stored them away for my up and coming grandchildren. My husband thinks I'm nuts, however if Cody and Levi have children as early as 23, that is only 12 years away. Really what's 12 years when you realize you have a 6th grader!!!! EEKS! Currently Cody is 11, Levi is 10, Phisher is 4 and sweet little Emma is 15 months.
So I'll end this with a quick photo of each and then hopefully I'll update again sooner than later.
I got a new lap top and don't have up to date pictures on here!!! I do so much from my phone, including taking pictures, I really need to stop that!
