Summer...There is nothing better.

It's already the end of July and I find myself thinking about fall. Before I know it I will be heading back to room 48 and greeting 19 brand new fourth graders. I have said this numerous times; I love teaching, but there really isn't anything like summer. I love running in the morning, taking my time with the boys, lunch dates with friends, and pool lounging. That always makes the list. I was a little anxious about this summer; thinking that the weather might disappoint, but it has been B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! We have been to a few lakes. I dread bathing suit photos, but I am mostly covered in this one so I will let it slide.

John and I have done a couple of 5Ks. (The Cakes did a major half marathon, which I need to blog about -soon!) My goal is to do one a month (5ks that is, not half marathons). There are so many benefits to running. I think one of my favorite things is meeting God first thing in the morning and enjoying His creation. There is nothing like it. Period!

Today, in honor of the big 35 (mine, not his) we brought the kids to Adirondack Animal Park and they loved it. I loved it too! Can someone please swap me out and put me on Green Acres? I don't think John will go for it but I can wish, it is my birthday... Sigh....
