Baseball, school, and losin' the weight

All kinds of wonderful stuff happened in the last little while.

We went to a SF Giant's game on Saturday night. So much fun! So much fun! The Giants won --but no home run from Barry Bonds. Here are some pictures:


#1 is in 1st grade!

She started yesterday (wa-hoo!) and is enjoying it so far. She's in school from 7:45AM until 2:20PM (who decided they should start that early?!?) and so it's strange to have her gone most of the day. Yesterday, I was going to clean the house, do the laundry, and organize all kinds of stuff! Of course, the operative word being "was." I ended up blogging all day, reading my novel, and playing with the kids. Whoo-hoo! Today, my SIL and nephew joined #2, #3, #4 and I at Six Flags. It was a short time there (just a few rides and lots of animal viewings), but still way fun. Then piano lessons, weight watchers, and now here. Ooh! That brings me to....

Brandon: 20.4
Me: 11.6
I am training for a 5K. My walking buddy and I opted for a short race since it's in 3 weeks. The 10K will come later. But because of school, we have to run earlier. Oh, yes, that's right! We're out there by 5:30AM every morning, baby! When else would two mothers with young children do it? Exactly. And frankly, I love it. I return home all charged up and ready to go with the day. I know Brandon likes that better than my usual "Grrr. Don't talk to me....Grrr!!" attitude when I don't exercise. Or maybe it's just when I wake up. Hmmmm.....
I am tired. Go figure.

WOW! Very impressive. My dh is long gone by 5:30, so it's not even an option for me. Darn! ;-)

Fun game, too. What great memories to be making with your kids!!

I am NOT a morning person, but am thinking I'll have to be if I want to exercise and lose the baby weight.

I'm so impressed with you getting up at 5:30 to exercise! I am not a morning person, but I know I need to be if I am ever going to exercise. Still working on that one.

Way to go on the weight loss, #1 being in school and baseball. Sounds like great fun all around!

I don't think I could do 5:30 every day, that would totally wear me out! We go walking at 8 and then the kids get to have some park time around 9 when we are done. It works out for everyone!
