Spring break

Oscar's self portrait...Did a pretty god job eh?

This week has been spring break, and seriously has flown by so fast. Grandma and Grandpa Edge have come into town and so I have had this wonderful hiatus of in-house babysitters, gardener's, adults to talk to throughout the day, the list goes on and on. Currently as I write Grandma and Grandpa have taken Oscar out to the store and Poppy is sleeping.
This morning they spent all morning cleaning my very un-springy yard.
It is so fun to have them around...we just need to convince them to move up here.

Tonight Rick and I will be going to Ellensburg so that he can run the Yakima River Marathon tomarrow. Grandma and grandpa will be here safely with the kiddies and I will not worry one bit about leaving them.
Not to mention the one-on-one time they have spent helping Oscar to memorize his sight words for school. Somehow they have the knack of being able to make him pay attention for longer than 30 seconds!
It has been a great week and we even had a nice day of weather yesterday.
Now, all of you can be thinking of Ricky tomorrow morning...running. I will be volunteering at the finish line. I'm a bit sad I can't run with him, after all this will be the FIRST marathon we haven't done together. However I don't' feel too bad, especially because I know my Hip certainly wouldn't be able to handle it. I suppose there is a time and a season for everything.

oooh, I'd love to hear how the run goes tomorrow. that one has been on my list for years now. if I hear a good report, maybe I'll run it next year!

that seriously sounds like the ideal! can i borrow them? :)

good luck to rick tomorrow! what a great sentiment on the right time and season for things. i've been dying to run more lately and just so tired. it bums me out that my dumb lung is keeping me down more than i'd like right now. your hip will totally heal- and you'll be faster than ever.

by the way, i got my runner's world today and they have a thing on moms running the olympic marathon trials. you totally popped into my head as i thumbed through it- i wouldn't be surprised in the least if i saw you running the trials! (or sprinting through the grocery store in training!)

Jen, you make me feel good!
Thanks for the miserable like company right?
Anna...there is a post coming. He did a great job on the run. I cannot account for how wonderful it was/or was not. I will find out.

In my opinion, people who run marathons are insane. I have no idea how you guys do it!
