Bastien is taking a foray into flag football. So far it has been highly relaxing in comparison to hockey. We will report back as the season progresses. One funny note: his witty bestie is on the team and his first play idea is to put Vaseline on the team’s flags. So this should be interesting.
Let’s just start the week right off on a good note. Below is my current favorite written work in the house. It is a review about a tv series called Cosmos that we were trying to watch as a family. It was too “creepy” for Bastien, but clearly Hadley felt differently. Whenever I need a smile in my heart from now on, I will just pull up this post.
2017 was a great year for our race! We exceeded our highest registration ever by at least 50 (386 registered). We raised almost twice the income we’ve ever raised for Community Sharing (final number still out). The rain stopped five minutes before the start gun. And all the runners I love the most took first place in their age groups.
My level of involvement in this race was extreme this year and I’m not even joking when I tell you my eye twitched from stress for a full 24 hours during the setup and the race. And also I had PTSD-type dreams afterward. So clearly I have some training to do before I tackle this again next year. But standing back now, boy I feel PROUD of what my little team pulled off!
PS. Bastien’s time was 25:53 for this race!
Here is the rest of our epic Easter. Woohoo for most family visited in one day!
Could there ever be anything so exciting as Easter morning? What other day do you have permission to jump out of bed and sprint around inside looking for candy to eat for breakfast? This is assuredly why it is one of Hadley’s three favorite days.
We happened to have more fun celebrating life all day long. Even after eating candy for breakfast.
