taking a moment to find joy in the little things
We've still had very summery weather in these parts, but there are also obvious signs of the change in seasons all around. My garden is still beautiful and even as I walk around the neighborhood it's fun to see what's still blooming.
Over the weekend my friend, myself and my husband ran in a Cause and Event race. You get to pick your favorite cause and half of your registration $ goes toward that cause. It's no surprise that we ran on behalf of Compassion.
That guy right there....he turned 41 over the weekend. Marrying him was one of the best decisions I made in my life! He inspires me to stay fit and he is such a strong spiritual leader in our family and in our church. He's been preaching quite a bit and is getting better and better - Sunday he knocked his sermon out of the ballpark and we all learned so much.
So a little funny thing about the race....my husband and I both placed in the "masters division" - that's just a nice way of saying the older people's category. If you are 40+, you are in the masters division. I guess it's one perk of turning older. He got 2nd place for the 5K and I got 3rd place for the 10k. Go old people!
Part of our homeschool experience this year is that the girls cook dinner at least one night a week. I caught Kayleigh reading her new library book while stirring the spaghetti this evening. I guess they learn to multi-task at a young age!
Our summer vacation is officially over and we are back to school this week. It's my sixth year of homeschooling and I have a 3rd grader and a 4th grader! It's going to be a fun year.
