It snowed in the mountains last night and throughout today! It is June 10th. I feel like it is the neverending winter!
We are off to Florida for a little vacation. I'm praying that the warm weather and rest will lift my spirits!
The lawsuit settlement came in and repairs have begun on the front porches and reroofing our townhomes. It will feel like a new house by the time they are finished :-)
Claire lost her two bottom baby teeth. She is only four, not even 4 1/2 years old... My do kids grow up quickly!
We have decided to run the Hood-to-Coast this year, Brian & I, on my dad's team. It was a lifetime ago (1999) when I last ran this race! Pre-teaching stint & pre-kids! Hope my body remembers how to do it and doesn't punish me for putting it through this race again... Actually, I'm excited and it is a fun, crazy race!
Elliot has decided to wake up in the middle of the night for hours at a time. I think he's trying to stop napping which is fine, but that doesn't explain why even without a nap he needs/wants to be awake at night! Consequently, we are all tired and a bit grumpy around here with good reason. Lack of sleep really puts a damper on the race training too...
I'm trying to decide whether or not to renew my teaching license. I'm trying to figure out if I really do want to have a regular teaching job again. I've subbed a few days at my old middle school in French this past school year. The pace is much slower than I remember from my private college-prep high school teaching gig days. My expectations were set high and if I taught at a public school (chances are likely) I'd have to adjust my goals... My kids are little still so I know I have a couple years to decide... Decisions to make for myself that affect my family.
