How’s your weekend going? We had a busy Saturday, catching up on chores around the house, organizing kids clothes, my 4 yo’s soccer game, checking out yard sales and grilling for what might be one of the last times.

Back at the track

It’s Friday! Hope you’re enjoying it. I actually have a long day of solo parenting ahead of me so I’m crossing my fingers all goes well and that my patience stretches farther than I expect it to.

A day in Life with a six week old and 4 year old

Baby J hit six weeks on Monday- can you believe it?

Me neither.

Running with my four year old

For the last few months (or more), my 4 yo has been asking to do a kids race. I tried to find a local one in the spring (no luck) but finally registered for two this fall… one as part of the 5k I’m doing, and the other after my half marathon in November. Pretty [...]
