Of course after every group picture, we have to do a silly one...when will they grow up??? Too quickly, I am sure!!
The box of goodies also included some fall colors in the form of a new dish towel! It brought some fall to the kitchen quite nicely! Thanks!
And of course the kids were SUPER excited about all the treats in the box! The chocolate covered Twizlers are my personal favorite, but it was all great! The cute snowman pops (marshmallows dipped in white chocolate an decorated) will be the closest thing to winter we will have here too! Paul will get his fill on his next trip to Colorado Springs in December...I am cold just thinking about it! He will finish up his training on this next trip (YIPEE!) and is also attending training for financial counseling with Dave Ramsey upcoming! Pray for him and his travels if you think of it!
We are doing well. We are staying busy with sports and kids' activities. I also am so excited to have finally gotten some accountability to my running. I am meeting some ladies in the morning...or should I say dead of night (we meet at 4:50 AM), and we are running 5 miles three days a week. The other 2 days are my later work days (I go in one day at 9 AM and the other one at 10 AM), so I get to sleep in and go to the YMCA to do the circuit and run about 1 mile or more if I have time. I am amazed at the energy I have! I had to quit running with Paul because it was bothering his knees, and I couldn't run outside at night or in the early morning (still dark) by myself. I was getting really bored with the treadmill. Now, 5 miles flies by and I am off to shower and attack my day! I am also amazed at the fact that I can no longer manage to stay awake much past 9 PM! No, by the way, there will probably be no pictures of my running group since we all roll out of bed and head to our meeting place! Its funny, its still dark when we finish our run, so I am not sure any of them would recognize me on the street except Kristin who I ran once with last fall and whose husband is a pilot at Agape. She let me into her group, THANKS Kristin!
