I leave for Paris tomorrow. I realize it’s totally obnoxious to say, but I am dreading this trip big time. I get very anxious about traveling and being away from my family. It’s the worst.
We had such a great few days though. I will write a post and read it when I am homesick.
I have been keeping up with the Couch to 5K training, even though it’s not quite as fun anymore. On Saturday, the boys wanted to go to the playground, so I ran around the school while they played. It is much harder to run outside vs. on a treadmill!
Littlest practiced skateboarding while I ran. He has been determined to get good enough to go to the skatepark with the older kids. I admire his determination!
It was a busy few days with indoor soccer and playdates and work. We were happy to stay home for a game night. Bingo!
Of course, you know who got into the action.
In other news, we finally got our first little bit of snow!
Littlest got a snowboard for Christmas. He is dying to use it and has been trying all kinds of tricks to make it snow; including the snow dance (point your forefingers up like you’re saying #1 and dance), sleeping with a spoon under your pillow, and putting your clothes in the bathtub at night. Unfortunately, the snow wasn’t enough for actual snow boarding but the forecast is calling for a possible blizzard this weekend. His techniques may be working!
The boys have really been into that show “Cupcake Wars” on Netflix. On Monday we decided to have our own Cupcake War. I baked up a batch of cupcakes and they worked to develop flavors and decoration.
It was so much fun and I couldn’t believe how focused and creative they were.
We had flavors such as S’mores, Peanut Butter & Banana, Apple & Maple, and Tropical Coconut.
I thought that the results were quite beautiful.
Of course, they deserted me when it was time to clean up the kitchen (but it was worth it).
After the exhausting Cupcake Wars, we enjoyed some down time on the couch watching YouTube videos and cross stitching. I just noticed that we were watching cat videos while our cat was watching us!
Someday I will learn to take better photos, but that someday isn’t today.
Happy Wednesday, Friends!
