Now we’ve entered a new phase of life with Luke as a Kindergartener. It’s weird and different and wonderful all at the same time. I miss him very much during the day, but we’re in week 5 of school now and thankfully that’s getting easier – or at least, I’m getting used to it.
Yes people, I run now! It was one of my self-discipline goals earlier in the year and last time I went out I ran a mile and a half – my longest time ever!! I currently run a mile in about 11:30 so I have a loooong way to go but it has been good for me. Considering that in the beginning of August I could barely run the length of three houses without wanting to die, this is huge progress for me! I still hate prettttty much every second of it (I have zero athletic ability and hate all sports), but it’s rewarding to both see my core tightening up – thank you, 2 c-sections – and to have that feeling of self-discipline every time I get out there and run a little farther.
Fall is here in CT and we are loving it! Last week my in-laws came down for the weekend and we went apple-picking and celebrated Chris’s birthday (décor by Luke – lol!). I could not for the life of me get them to both look at me – but these two cuties loved their wagon ride from Daddy around the rows of apple trees!
