Summer 2018 Photo Dump

I had plans to write about what we've been up to this summer but we've been busy living life. So now that it's August and the kids are back in school, here are some of the things we've been up to.

We had many park picnics. 

We finally shot off Ewan's rocket he got for his fifth birthday. 

We had several zoo days. 

We spent a week visiting my family and the lake in Northeast Indiana. 

We spent a lot of time in the pool and rode bikes.

We went to several summer library programs and the Evansville Museum.

Stay tuned for a few more in depth posts about some of our adventures!

Back to School 2018

I'm a few days late, but the kids went back to school on Wednesday. Ewan loves school and has been asking to go back since the end of May but we weren't sure how Cecily would do. She was insisting that she was going to the Catholic elementary school associated with her preschool (she's not) and we weren't entirely sure we were going to be able to get her in the building come back to school night. Even though she was a little shy at first, luckily she went in no problems! On the second day of school she insisted on being dropped off and walking by herself to her classroom. We had Ewan watch behind her to make sure she made it, which of course she did. How is my Kindergartener this independent already?!

I always take photos and ask them the same questions before the new school year to see how much they've changed. Ewan wasn't really having it but Cecily was all about photos this year. Here they are! 


Here's to a great 2018-2019 school year!

YMCA Storybook 5k

Last weekend Ewan and I ran his first race, the Storybook 5k. It was a race geared toward families and we did it with a friend of mine and her son. Ewan ran a mile in gym class this past year and ever since he's been asking to do a race with me where he gets to wear a number. So when I saw this, I knew it was perfect. 

We all started out together but very quickly my friend's son and Ewan took off. I could see them ahead of us and we had both told them to make sure they get water at the water stops so we were hoping they did. I had been doing a run/walk with my friend but around 1.5 miles I saw Ewan standing off to the side with a water bottle. I ran up to him and made sure he was ok, but I knew he was probably done at that point. I told my friend to go ahead and I would see her at the finish. 

It was SO HOT already at 7AM and even though I told him to make sure to get water, he didn't stop. While I knew we would be walking most of the race, I was concerned about him getting heat stroke so we leisurely walked the rest of the race. Except for when we could see the finish. I told him he could run ahead of me to the finish and that he did. I was pushing it to keep up with him. The girl taking photos at the end said he was going so fast that she wasn't able to get his picture. 

Alan jokes that that was the beginning and end of his running career, but I hope he decides to do another race with me sometime. I'm so proud of him for getting out there and doing it!
