High Five for Friday #11 : Running, Kindergarten, and Loosing on Purpose

May 21, 2015

  High five, we made it to Friday again!   How was your week?  Ours was pretty normal, with the usual beginnings and endings that make up every day life.  With the school year coming to an end, a lot of the activities are wrapping up for the summer holidays.  I love the slower pace of life on Kwaj when school's out but I know that by August, I'll be anxious to dive back into being busy again.

  They say the best place to begin something is at the beginning, so let's start with one of those for our week in review:

#1
A Beginning:
The blog's new look!  I followed Shannon's advice and took a look at the blog templates available on Etsy.  I found the perfect one from Maira Gall. Installation was super easy and she was really great about answering my emails and helping me format the template so that it worked for the blog.
 Know what I love most?  The scrolling picture at the top.  I love to move the page up and down and see our picture disappear.  Go ahead and try it, I'll wait.
Fun right?  That little bit of HTML coding just seem magical to me.
 
#2
An Ending:

The Kwaj Running Club had their last fun run of the season last weekend.  I try to do the 2-mile runs with them every time I can and I love bringing the kids along.  Sky has run in their half-mile races before but this time it was just Water and I.  I'm hoping to up my mileage over the summer and join some of their longer runs when they start again in the fall.

#3
Another Ending:
The last Spartan Expresso was today.  Every year a group of high school students and teachers run a coffee shop out of the Home Ec kitchen.  It's usually open once a month and their coffee is the best.  It's going to be hard to wait three months for my next peppermint mocha latte...

#4
A Beginning:
How on Earth is Sky old enough for Kindergarten?!  Seriously, when did that happen?  While I think she'll love the challenge of school (and D and I are thrilled to pay one less day care bill), I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the fact that this is really happening.  Happily, I have until September to get used to it.

#5
An Ending:
Sky's soccer season ended with a parent-child soccer game, and let me tell you, the fix was in from the beginning.  All the parents played terribly so that the kids could win- and win they did, because the parents lost 6-1.  Sky played goalie, just like her mama, and when she blocked a goal, I think my heart exploded a little bit.  I'm not sure she's going to want to play soccer again next year but I kind of hope she does, if only so that she and I can continue to have something in common.




 

How was your week?  Do you have any plans for the three-day weekend?  I don't know about you, but I'm definitely going to be sleeping in!  Kwaj celebrate Memorial Day with a beach party so I'm hoping that the weather is good enough so that we can at least spend a morning playing in the waves.
