This week the girls got to go to the Father-Daughter Banquet with their dad. They had a great time getting dressed up, seeing friends, and enjoying a special evening. Friday we had school, and then Catherine came over to spend the night. Saturday morning, we all got up early and headed for Pontotoc. The girls ran the Pontotoc 5k (their first since November), and the boys went to the track meet with Scott.
The girls did very well, considering they hadn't run more than 20 minutes at a time. I don't think that either of them walked! Sarah ran a 30:52 and Hannah ran a 32:57.
I sat out of this one... On Wednesday I finally went to the doctor. Stress Fracture in the tibia was the ruling. I have a lovely giant black air cast/boot to wear for three weeks, and then I go back for a re-check.
It was great to see so many of my Spartans at the 5K. We all joked about them being homeschoolers and not getting out much; it was obvious how glad everyone was to see each other! It made me excited to start cross country in a few months!
Other than that, we had a pretty uneventful week. No crazy shennanigans (sp?) involving the chickens or other animals...
Josh-ism for the week: My mom had given him some Peeps (those nasty little marsmallow and food coloring shaped chickens), and he was asking for one. "Hey mom, can I have one of those little Pip Squeaks?"
(The doctor told me that the boot did not mean I could walk around all the time; he told me to sit and prop it up as much as I could... the children heard him say this.) So now, the most common saying heard at our house is, "Aww, Mom, SIT DOWN... Put up your feet! Let me do that for you!" Makes my heart melt like buddah...
