Little Girl Running

Last year when I started running 5Ks Sweetie Heart decided that she wanted to runt hem with me.  Last year was about me.  I needed to do them alone.  This year is about her.  I told her that whether or not she trained for a 5K she could run in them if she wanted.  The first one of the season came around.  This was my first 5K last year.  It's a nice non-competitive race to raise money for one of the community schools in the area.  I was told by my midwife that there was no way that I should run, so I enlisted Webby to run with her.  
 She was a bit nervous
She and Webby had a wonderful race.  They finished in
34 minutes 35 seconds!  They had a great time and great weather for the race.  Little man had a good time, too, swimming in the rocks.

The following Thursday, Webby ran another 5k with a team from work.  He finished in 22 minutes and some odd seconds.  I guess we might be a family of runners.  Who would have thunk it?!

Report Reflects Life

I just love this!!  It is the first report that Sweet Girl wrote.  Apparently this is part of the kindergarten curriculum.  Looks like they chose a picture then wrote what they know about it.  The last sentence made me smile.   She chose a picture of markers.  This is what it say (in case you can't read it):
Rt Stuf (Art Stuff)
You can mac pichs. (You can make pictures.)
You can culr With Them. (You can color with them.)
You can Filin Them. (You can fill in them.)

(And my favorite)
You have to pt them uwa. (You have to put them away.)

If you can't tell that is a BOLD period at the end of that sentence.
I had a good chuckle when I read that last sentence.  How many kids would write that as part of their report?  Fun stuff!
