Michael's First Day of School

Michael just started preschool this past week. He's been very excited about school, and getting to go. Although... he does keep asking me when he can ride the bus. I keep trying to explain that you don't get to ride the bus yet. He really likes his teacher, and has made some friends in his class. I'm really excited about his making friends... I know it's silly, but I'm just as excited about him going to school as he is. I do feel sad about Matthew though... he asks me every time Michael goes to school if he can go too. So I feel bad about having to tell him no... someday though... he'll be off too! It's so fun that they're getting big. But I am very happy about Michael. I think he's going to do great at school.

Anthem Sprint Triathlon

After much training and stress, I completed my first sprint triathlon! I trained most of the summer to get ready... and was feeling pretty good that I might meet my time goal for finishing. But things don't always go as you plan. The race started at around 5, and it was pretty hot... so I ran slower than I wanted to, but that was ok, I still had the biking and the swimming left to catch up. The biking was going really well... until I hit the 11th mile... and my tire went flat. So the last two miles I walked/jogged with my bike. I was pretty tired after that, but I finished the swim. My time was much slower than I wanted, but I finished... and that's what's important. So I plan on redeeming my self in another couple of months when I try again. Hopefully the second go round will end better... then maybe I can quit this crazy sport. I'll keep you all posted.
