So Much To Say!

We had a great Christmas and a very peaceful New Year's.  Hope everyone did the same!  We also became a great aunt and uncle on January 6.  It's our oldest niece's baby and her name is Nora Grace.  We've also all been getting over colds.  About three weeks ago, both Tom and I came down with something very flu-like, if not the flu exactly.  I'm still getting over the congestion and cough that is lingering.  The boys had it a few days before us, and they recovered much faster than we did, LOL.  At least the fact they had the same cold and got through it without antibiotics told me it was definitely a virus of some kind.

Other than that, Phoebe has had winter cheerleading and having some indoor field hockey practices with the high school team.  The boys are busy with Kindergarten, learning their sight words and enjoying their swimming classes at the YMCA.

I need to get back to training!  This year, we have the Spartan Sprint in July and the Philly Rock n' Roll half marathon in September.  I need to order a new pair of sneakers as the current ones I have are old and giving me shin splints when I run.  I do have a word for this year!  It is STRONG.  Unfortunately, I haven't felt too strong so far the beginning of this year, but I've been getting through all our colds and still not being too far behind.

What I'm also looking forward to is having fun this year!  Through all this craziness, we've been having some fun!  Even with the boys homework, I try to make it fun and tell them how much I look forward to spending that time with them.  It may snow tonight.  We haven't had much snow this winter.  We've had a lot of threats of snow with misses that haven't missed the New England area, as they are buried.  Tonight they are calling for 3-5 inches, so hopefully we will have snow and then can enjoy a day off school and work, play in the snow and make the first snowman of this winter!

I also love doing school stuff with them :)

This sight words business kills me - are we teaching reading without sounding out these days?....

Go snow..... enjoy the day with your kids, Heather!
