Weekend Recap & Some News

We had a busy weekend so here's a recap:

Friday Sawyer had preschool and Kyle left for an away game in Michigan. The kids enjoyed a night playing with their friends and a babysitter. I went out with a few coaches wives for dinner and coffee. Then we spent the night at my friend Emily's house. The kids loved having a sleepover! We decided to sleep over because I had to get up bright and early for a marathon relay and Emily graciously watched the kids during the race.

Saturday I woke at 5:30 am put on my running gear and headed to Akron. I participated in the Akron Marathon Relay with 4 other ladies from church. I ran the 2nd leg and it was 4.8 miles. This way my 2nd time doing this leg of the race and everything went very smoothly. In fact as I was running along I wanted to find out my pace (being a leg in the relay you don't really know when your teammate started or when you started making it difficult to know your pace) so I approached 3 girls who were running together and seemed to be pacing themselves.  Turns out they were 3 friends running the marathon together and they went to Malone. Not only that but the girl I was talking to was also a cheerleader and her boyfriend plays football on the defense. Out of all the 1,000's of people and that's who I approached, crazy! Anyway it was a blessing because I spent the last 2 miles talking with the girls which always makes the race go faster. I finished in 45 minutes which was way faster than my goal of 10 minute miles so I was happy.

From the relay I had to rush home and pick-up the kiddos. Then we rushed home to listen to Daddy's football game. The kids napped while I nervously listened. It was a good game. Malone led at times, but in the end they lost to Wayne State.

Because I had expended all my energy at the race I was pretty worthless the rest of the day and the kids stayed in their pj's all day. That night we were feeling restless so we went out in our pj's for a little drive-thru ice cream. Then daddy got home just in time to put the kids to bed!

Sunday we went to church then came home and slept. At church I subbed in Sawyer's Sunday school class. Lets just say I won't be serving in his class ever again...he was quite disruptive and would not listen to me. Normally he does really well in classroom situations, but obviously with mommy there he likes to take advantage of the situation.

We also took this little picture we posted on FB

More on this to come...

Sunday night we had a community group get together and it was the perfect way to finish off the weekend.
