Weekend Roundup...

...The sun continued on Saturday (off and on), and DH spent all day on a mtn bike ride (in the mountains) while I took the kiddos to E's piano lesson (recital in two weeks). Then they hung around and I vegged...all in all, a quiet day.

...yesterday was the fun run -- we call it Cougar Tracks.


...perfect weather for this (no rain, though a bit windy), and D was the second fastest boy in 3rd grade. He was in the top five for 9-12 years olds, in fact, though he was disappointed because they only gave out 1st-3rd ribbons. E walked and jogged with our neighbors (and her best friend); the dad stuck with her when his son took off, which I appreciated! I walked with the wife (a friend) most of the way, and then she went back to find her daughter and I cut through to find D at the finish line (he'd been there for a while).

...DH used the rest of yesterday for yard work (which didn't thrill the kiddos), and I went to B&N to get some writing in. It was one of those days where writing was the last thing I wanted to do, but I forced myself. I probably got in 1500 words, which was a relief ;)

...we played Life as a family last night -- it's turning into a weekly (or bi-weekly) event.

...six more days of school (including today), and we're all sooooo ready for summer break! Getting up this morning was killer.

Happy Monday :)

It's fun to see so many kids get out there and exercise :)

1500 words when you weren't in a mood to write??? That's amazing!

Well, I suppose it depends on the quality of the words, no? :)

Congrats to D! And to you for writing an amazing 1500 words when you weren't in the writing mood! 1500 words is probably the most I've ever written in one day and it took me hours because I'm a revise-as-I-go-along type of writer.

I can generally write ~2500 in one go (when I'm really flowing). Yesterday was definitely a struggle, and I wasn't thrilled with the rhythm of how they came out...so I might end up scrapping them. But at least it was something :)
