Just Because...


...Because this is what my kids look like playing OUTSIDE after school. Yes...that would be sunshine, which means no jackets! YAY!

...Because we made a goal to read scriptures as a family for thirty days, we did it so we got to go out to eat.

...Because every time I see this precious face I am reminded of the miracle that he is and that I get to be his mom.

...Because I ran ELEVEN miles and didn't stop even though I wanted to really, really bad.

HOT DIGGITY DOG! Way to go with the miles! Love the G hat and what a great idea with the scripture reading-we totally have to do that. We have been slackin' BIG time!

You ran 11 miles?! Was there a moose behind you? Because that is the only way I would be able to run that far.

Don't you LOVE the sunshine? It was 80 degrees here. I seriously almost teared up with happiness.

11 miles! Girl, I can't run 11 blocks! You are amazing.

I CAN however eat 11 cupcakes.

Good job for finishing your run! This Debbie Gibson song is bringing back happy memories.

Love the song, by the way...

Eleven miles!! Great job!

I can truly say that has never EVER crossed my mind as something I would like to do.

EVER.

I am a total wimp and would stop after about 5 minutes. :)

Nice job on getting past 10! That was a big mental block for me. :) Is that your last long run before the big day?? So excited for you if you couldn't tell!

And, Camden is adorable. And, nice job on the scripture study. AND, glad you're getting some sunshine!

I'm up to 2.5 miles. It's only been a few weeks. You inspire me to keep going.

You also inspire me to not eat out whenever i am unable to pull it together. I need to turn that into a treat and not a "mommy isn't going to be able to do one more thing today so we are going to go to Taco Bell or Chick fil A."

Wow!! 11 miles, I can't even fathom that! I run 3 miles a day, I would be dead at 11:D I hope you treated yourself to a small dish of ice cream like the girls

You didn't go to The Olive Garden did you? :(

PS Yes - Maya is precious.
