Our Life Right Now- October

Hi!  Yeah, things have been a little crazy here.  We have just been taking turns being sick. NOT fun!  In between those times that we are sick? I am trying to catch up on cleaning my house.  I already said it, but I will say it again, NOT fun! Here is a little of what we are up to these days though.

Well, I have been doing from couch to 5k.  This is my 3rd time starting this program and my least favorite time.  I love the girls that I am running with, but it is so hard this time.  I keep having shin splints, which are the absolute worst.  It’s just hard.  But, I am doing it.  I “jogged” for 25 minutes the other night.  No stopping.  That is seriously a big deal for me.  I had trouble running 1 minute!! I remember thinking there was no way that I would be able to run 5 minutes!!!! So 25 minutes? Yeah, that is huge. 

We are still doing preschool…yay! It has been hard with all of our sickness and honestly, it has been hard to do it everyday that we are sick. We are having to go slower than I expected we would, but there really  isn’t a reason that we should be rushing at this point. It is easy for me to get discouraged with how slow we are going, but they are learning.  That is what is important.  They do still get excited when I say that it is time for school.  I am really glad that they are enjoying it:)

Averie is just growing too fast.  I know I have said this 1,000 times on here, but we LOVE her!!! She makes us laugh every day.  She is saying SO many words now.  One of my favorites? bweeeese! (please!)  It is seriously almost impossible to turn her down if she says please.  Almost. I also love when she says “o-tay” (okay) or “o-tay ma-ma” (okay mama).  She is obsessed with her baby right now.  She insists on being rocked before bed time even though we do NOT rock our babies to sleep.  Where did this come from?? haha “rock” she says.  Annnnnnd we rock.  And we sing. And we sing. And we sing.  And she says “again” and we do it again:)

Ty and Micah are really into Mario stuff right now.  They still love super hero stuff as well. In fact, Ty wants to be batman for Halloween and Micah wants to be flash. I honestly don’t know how I am going to make a flash costume, but I refuse to spend $20 on one.  At this age, I am sure he will be happy with what ever I come up with.  I LOVE this age that they are at.  I love the conversations.  I love their kindness.  I just love, love, love them.
