Friday – FINALLY!  It’s been a looooooong week, but as of 3:15 this afternoon, I will officially be on Spring Break for the next week!  Woohoo!  I’m so ready for a break, and it’s been blatantly obvious that my kiddos are too!  Hopefully we all come back from break refreshed and ready to tackle the last few weeks of the school year.

I have no big plans over Spring Break (Matt’s has been the past TWO weeks).  Except, of course, to spend some much needed quality time with MacKenna!  I was really hoping we’d get to take some long walks outside, go to the park, and maybe even a trip to the zoo.  But, we are slated to have a pretty big WINTER storm this weekend and the weather is going to be less than ideal for spending a ton of time outside.  Boo.  It’s supposed to be SPRING Break, right?!  Oh well.  We’ll still have plenty of fun playing inside!

45 minutes of playing volleyball – proud to say that my team won, I had a block, and one of my freshman Varsity players is looking OUTSTANDING for next season!  I’m excited!


Only 2 more long runs until the half marathon!  Hoping to get it in sometime tomorrow.  Lord knows I’m not going to be trying to get 11 miles in with 6 inches of snow on the ground!

Anyone else dealing with a late March snow storm?  How do you fit in long runs when there is going to be snow on the ground?
