Yesterday was a busy December day!
Here is a peak of what we were up to:
Fall has arrived in California...in December :)
My school campus is covered with trees & the beautiful leaves. We had rain yesterday, so the leaves were all falling. 

Breakfast of champions....I have some sort of bar for breakfast Monday through Friday.
In class, we did a Math Lib Review & I had stations. It was a fun activity & gets the students up & moving around.
 Thursdays are my favorite day to teach because I am done at 11:15. So, when I got home (Luke was still with my mother in law at Bible Study) I decided to do some touch up paint in his room. We got rid of his crib a couple weeks ago & I rearranged his room (and we took down his awesome rain gutter bookshelf (see it HERE) since that is where his bed was going) so I had to paint where I patched up some holes.
 There was a break in the rain so I decided to go on my 3 mile run. This was my last run before my half marathon....which is tomorrow!!! AHHHHH!!!! 
If you feel so inclined to donate to my run, HERE is the link. I am running with Team World Vision & all donations are made right to World Vision & they are 100% tax deductible.
Thank you for your support!
I love our running trail...it's so pretty this time of year!
I put this pic on Instagram, but wanted to share it here also with some words of encouragement:
Progress, not perfection. Less than 5 months ago I started running again after a 10 year running hiatus. The top rectangle shows my distance & time my first time running. The middle one shows the same run 3 months later (I ran that 2 days before I ran the Nike Women's Half. The bottom is today, my final run for my half marathon training.  My race is in on Saturday.  I wanted to share these because it is fun to see how my times have improved. I didn't run for 10 years because I was scared that I wasn't going to be as good of a runner as I used to be. I am so glad I swallowed my pride and started running again. I am stronger & feel so much better about myself. I made every excuse to not run.....too busy, too out of shape, too much going on with 3 kids, etc. Are you making excuses also? I was that person. So glad stopped making excuses. I only run 3-4 times a week. It doesn't take that much time out of my day. I am a busy working mom of 3, if I can make time, so can you!

Lunchtime after my run...getting in lots of protein. Fried eggs, avacado & chalula. Obsessed!


Then, Luke and I went to pick up Claire from school. One of our kids favorite things to do is climb the Japenesse Maple. Can you find Claire?!? So glad I snapped this photo....this morning all the leaves had blown off the tree because of the rain & wind last night :(

Kate doing math homework....have you heard of the website Sum Dog? My girls love it! I also love that Kate randomly put on a Santa hat to do homework. Kids are fun...especially this time of year.

The never ending laundry pile....ugh. Luke was in bed, Kevin & the girls were at their Father/Daughter Adventure Guides Christmas party, so I folded laundry & watched a Hallmark movie

Hope you had a good 10th & Happy Friday!!!

  1. I just love those Kate Spade earrings! And is it just me or is it strange to see leaves on the ground in California? Have a great weekend!
