How are you? It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about NOTHING..so I thought I we could do a little stream of consciousness, let’s just talk shall we?
We had a fantastic weekend. We are having so much fun with the kids. At 5 and (now) 3, they are excited about everything we do. E’s into baseball so we’re those parents, schlepping their folding chairs to the local ball diamond with hundreds of other parents. But it’s fun. E’s having a blast, and MiniE’ loves cheering him on. Scott is helping with the team and I gotta say it’s so attractive to see him out there helping those kids.
I got in a couple runs this weekend which was nice after a crazy week of travel last week. It felt good to get back into a rhythm. Let’s see if I can keep it up this week during what I think (I HOPE) is my last trip for a while. I’ve literally been on the road since middle of March. Florida, Arizona, Tennessee, Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Illinois. The silver lining is that I’m racking up the airline miles and I’m getting to write this post.
Saturday afternoon, I took the kids to a WWII Weekend at Jefferson Barracks. E is really into tanks and big trucks so I knew if he didn’t get anything else out of it, than he would at least marvel at the machines. The weather was perfect and he loved it all. He looked at those soldiers like they were heros. He even shook a few veteran’s hands and told them thank you. It was so touching. Then we just drove around with the windows down and the music off, just talking and enjoying the time together. E is FULL of questions and some are pretty deep.
- Where does Jesus live?
- Is there a bad Jesus?
- Is Zoey in heaven?
- Is she there with pawpaw and G-pawpaw?
- Why do soldiers have to fight?
- Will I be an architect when I grow up? I’m not very good at drawing yet.
Then we do a lot of singing in the car. Right now, he’s loving that song “One call away” which he calls the “Superman song”. You should see him, from his carseat, he’s using his entire body to sing this song and with MiniE “harmonizing”, it’s quite possibly the most beautiful sound in the world.
Saturday night we played with the neighbors while Scott “yelled at the TV” (as E told the neighbor) during the Blues v Blackhawks game. I can’t watch it. It’s so much fun to watch the kids play till the sun goes down, munch on some watermelon and laugh till their sides hurt. It’s really what childhood is all about and we’re so glad to have neighbors they love playing with.
I know I haven’t been blogging lately and I doubt that you guys miss it too much. I kind of feel like for the time and effort it takes me to blog, there are more valuable things I could be doing. That doesn’t mean I don’t like engaging and interacting with you but it does mean, I like using the micro-blogging channels more so make sure you’re following me on Instagram and Snapchat (MomsLRB).
Oh, I forgot to tell you…last week I did my first radio show. There’s a drive time show called The Dave Glover Show. I’ve been listening to it for years and they asked me to come in and talk about blogging. It was so much fun. The guys were so nice and would love to go back sometime. I think you can listen to it here (try to get it the 28:41).
I’m headed to Nashville this weekend for Rock ‘n’ Roll Nashville. I’m not calling it a goal race, I’ve heard it’s really hilly and I’ve not been running a ton since GO! So I’m looking forward to just running. I MIGHT however, try the Galloway method again. What can it hurt?!
