Busy School Stuff, Running, Concerts & No Show On The Tooth Fairy…

August 28, 2014

Wednesday: I didn’t wake up in time to go for a morning run so I had to wait until after I sent the girls off to school before I went. (My youngest went to a neighbor’s house to play.) I then went on a 7.8 mile run and finished off in 54:14. I felt good and knew I only had about 50 minutes to run. I picked up my kindergartner and her friend from school… Then we played restaurant. The 3 girls were very demanding!

IMG_1523.JPG It was a pretty low key night with Corom working late. The girls went to bed and I worked on the school fundraiser/ 1/2 marathon to marathon challenge. There are so many little things to do and worry about. But it is coming together and the community is getting involved! Very exciting!

Thursday: I woke up at 5:10 a.m. and met up with Amber and Rachelle. We went out for 1:28.24 and got 11.7 miles in. It was a beautiful morning. My legs were a little tired this morning but was a nice, enjoyable run. When I came home, my 2nd child, the one that lost her tooth (well Corom pulled it out) was crying… The Tooth Fairy forgot to come. 😦 Yeah… I had to think quick!!! I quickly went to my room and grabbed a dollar… Then I went to hers and said let me help you look. (She has a couple of pillows on her bed that are stuffed animals). I hurried and shoved the money underneath one and waited until she found it. She switched so quick from crying to laughing. I, then, had to explain that the tooth fairy wanted her to keep her tooth for 1 day only and to put it back under her pillow for tonight. :/ Oh boy… Rough morning! All 4 girls went to school today. :/ But I kept very busy with the marathon challenge event. We are putting on an assembly at the school tomorrow and need to finish up on the last minute stuff (ok not finish up but start on what we are going to present :))…

IMG_1524.JPG Yep that is a huge map… We are going to track all the miles of all the kids and hit certain land marks throughout the US (Statue of Liberty, Mt. Rushmore, Disneyland of course, etc.)… Anyway… Lots to do but stuff I enjoy and am excited about!!! I did meet with the city, recreation office and the other cross country coach to go over the final race. My oldest had a field trip today and Corom went as one of the chaperones. He had a good time with her, even though she didn’t really want to hang out with him. 🙂 At cross country the kids went on a 7-8 mile run today.

IMG_1516.JPG I went with Corom for his 2nd day of teaching at the university (UVU) as an adjunct teacher. He actually did a really good job… Yes I was pleasantly surprised. 🙂 He looked hot up there!

IMG_1525.JPG We then headed up to Salt Lake for a Ragnar fundraiser. We ate dinner with Tanner and Kristen Bell (he is the co-founder of Ragnar). Tanner then shaved his head to raise money for child’s cancer.

IMG_1551.JPG The 4 of us went to a concert out in the park… “The Head and the Heart”. I have not been to a concert in a long time… Well I’ve only been to 1 concert maybe 2? Good music! My mother-in-law watched the girls… She took them to a concert in the park catered to families. They had fun.
