Really, Are You Serious?

At the beginning of our summer break, my aunt extended an invitation to visit her lake house in Michigan. The oldest two have a dead week the week of the 4th of July and it was available for all of us. So, we said yes and made the plans. The thing about Michigan…the summers are absolutely amazing. The daylight starts early and ends late (like 5am to 10pm) and it’s so much cooler than it is in the south. Even with what seemed to be a heatwave, it was at least 15 degrees cooler in the morning than it was at home. Our first night there, we went for a walk after dinner and needed light long-sleev ..read more

A morning with the runners | Mommy and Me Monday | 751st ed
Really, Are You Serious?

Before heading out of town, we knocked out a long run a day early. Some of us had 3.5 miles and the older kids had 7/8 miles. After our 3.5 miles, we walked a half mile loop and then waited for the rest. Thanks to the heat and humidity, two days in a row we were all covered in sweat! Like no dry spots on my shirt! After trying to cool down, pretty unsuccessfully, we popped out at the car wash (post-washing) and vacuumed out the car. It was pretty empty on a Sunday morning, so we grabbed 4 hoses and knocked out the work quickly. Then, we grabbed a treat at the ‘bucks. I can’t overlook a 4/$20 ..read more

C/o ’25 pics | Mommy and Me Monday | 749th ed

This is going to be a year of checking off boxes for the last year of high school. We won’t be using the “s” word until the first day of the school year. For now, it’s just things in preparation of that year. We’ve done a couple college visits and have more planned. But, for now, it’s the pictures for the yearbook in cap in gown. When you hand over your phone to her, this is what you get. And, when I have it, I snap a selfie with the c/o ’25 wall in the background. We only did the drape and cap and gown there, and plan to get more pictures once it’s not sunny for 90% of the day and 1000% hu ..read more

Running with E and B | Mommy and Me Monday | 748th ed

We are already back at running. There was a nice 2 week break for everybody and then it was time to get outside. B and E had 2-2.5 easy miles, so I joined them after my bike ride. E decided to go ahead of us, so B and I finished our 2 miles while E wrapped up her longer run. It was nice and cool when we started and somehow heated up quite a bit in those 20 minutes. B and I snapped a picture and waited for E to finish before joining us. We all were a bit rosie-cheeked. Mr. Serious and N and their friends did much longer runs, but we were all happy to wait for them to finish while sitting in ..read more

Camp and a Ride | Mommy and Me Monday | 747th ed

This week was cross country camp, and all four of the girls got to attend! The oldest was planner and executor of the camp. The second oldest was a counselor, and the youngest two were attendees. I also attended as booster club for the high school and coach for the middle school! It was not too hot, perfectly sunny and a fun time for everybody. But, we were all exhausted at the end of the week. All week I said I wanted to get a picture of the four of us, but I never managed to get us all in the same spot. So, I got one with 3 of us after the color run. These two got a ton of color on them! T ..read more

It was the last week of school here, and there are pictures a-plenty. One last day capture: 11th, 9th, 6th and 4th. We decided to celebrate with some frozen yogurt/sorbet. Some in between runs weight workouts. A family lunch out….might be the only meal the whole week that we were able to have all together. Another ice bath with my B. She has requested one a week together. A little end of week couch pile. They had to get off very quickly after this because, wow, this is a lot of people! The kids had 2 weeks off of running, so I thought it would be good to also take 2 weeks. This was afte ..read more

With Mr. Serious out of town for a work trip, the ladies were flying solo for E’s track award ceremony. Her sisters came to cheer her (and coach mom) on! It’s a plus that they got some lemonade and a cupcake. Thankfully, one of the team kiddos took a group picture for us, too! Look at us all dressed up! Later in the week, I cleaned out my ice barrel and wanted to get in an ice bath (it helps with my anxious brain and helps with my restless legs). B wanted to get in, too, so she joined me. I left my phone far away, so no pictures in it, but after we got out, we dipped our faces a couple times ..read more

A 5k and State | Mommy and Me Monday | 744th ed

It was another running filled weekend. And once again, nobody is surprised. Saturday morning, we were up early for a local 5K. It was actually cool in the morning which was a nice treat. The oldest two were getting a little extra sleep and then headed off to the state track meet! One more picture at the starting line before go time. Admittedly, none of us were ready when the gun went off. They told us it was 5 minutes and then it was only 2 and they didn’t stay ready, or anything. It was a few seconds of chaos and dodging people, but we made it through. Mr. Serious ran solo and beat his tim ..read more

I hope you read that title like Rihanna sings it (maybe the clean version). This week was crazy and I think that E, B and me were the only “consistents” with dinner together. Otherwise, there was work, work dinners, babysitting or school responsibilities. It got to the point where I couldn’t even think about cooking, so rounded up everybody that was home and we went out to dinner. It’s wildly strange to only get a table for four! But, what remains is these girls still grab my phone and take pictures of themselves and us. Friday we were invited to the elementary school for the Terrific Kids a ..read more

The local high school put on an amazing weekend of Mean Girls musicals! Wow! So much talent. N and I went to see it Friday night and she went again to see it Saturday night with a friend. It was also nice that the theater was so full of students that were genuinely excited to cheer for their classmates and friends. Saturday morning we were up and ready for the last race of the season for middle school. E ran the 1660m and 800m and set new PRs for both of them and scored points for the team! And the girls got 2nd place overall, which is amazing because we only competed in 4 events! It was a ..read more
