This week we are talking about Teddy Bears... which is perfect since our letter of the week is T. (Didn't even plan that)
Today we read the cutest story, " Who's been eating my porridge?". It takes you on a search for the porridge monster... on the journey you run into Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Ms Muffit, and others. Totally a cute read to check out.
Doing the actions to "Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear".
We also read the story, "Going on a Book Hunt". While I was fixing lunch, the kids went on a book hunt to find a book that was "just right".
And a random cute baby shot. A isn't wanting to hang with us at story time yet but she loves music time and the lap top toy!
Today was a good night for the gym... I didn't want to go but I was glad I did.
I ran 24 minutes without stopping... I stopped at 2miles... walked 1/2 half then ran to 3. My goal by next Monday is to run 3 miles without stopping... again!
It was a good run. I had a lot on my mind. I seem to work out better when I am thinking and trying to solve the worlds problems. It's my time... my time to push myself, get a clear head and just keep running.
The first 1/2 mile is the toughest. My mind was wouldn't shut off... Mia gets tested tomorrow The plumbing is still slow Am I doing enough to prepare my daycare peanuts for school Soccer is starting Am I doing enough at my Church job Is Gaby getting enough one on one time We need to practice dance recital DVD more Kadyn didn't read to me tonight Kendal is just funny I love having more Husband time We still need a date night I am so glad laundry is caught up Sad my older peanuts are going back to school tomorrow
Once I stopped running, it was hard to start again... But then I was mad I stopped. I started at 5.0 for speed and ended at 5.4... that made me happy again.
But I was happy I did it... I think I am close. I think with a little more push, I can be at 3 miles on Monday. I want 3 miles. Non Stop. No matter what my time is.
I am happy I ran today at the gym... I am happy I had my running shoes on! Today is Day 5: 17 miles
