Another week down. Only one more to go before we take our spring break! I can’t wait for a week of rest and relaxation. Yes, I know most of us are busier on spring break than we are during a regular school week. Shhh…I’m trying not to think of that.Things have gone pretty much according to plan this week. We are going to have to make up a couple of science labs because it’s not quite the right time of year for everything we need. Read: some guy picked all the wildflowers for his wife (I hope), leaving us not one to use for our science lesson.
That’s okay, though. We’re a bit ahead on science, so we’ve got plenty of time to make up the labs.
Speaking of being ahead, Josh and Megan both finished their math for the year this week. We’re used to being perpetually behind, so this is new territory for us. I thought I was going to like having less math lessons so we weren’t required to do math every day, but now I’m not too sure.
Not to worry, though. I started them right in on the next levels. They were so disappointed yesterday. They honestly thought that I was going to let them be done with math until August. Oh, these kids of mine do not know their mother very well.
Brianna gave her third speech last night in her Toastmasters class. She is gracious enough to admit that she loves speech class after really balking about taking it. The instructor told me that they always had a lot of fun with the class and the kids enjoyed it, but, well, Brianna and I were both pretty skeptical. It is giving speeches, after all. I think she’s going to miss the class when it’s over.
While Brianna was giving her speech, I was running in my second 5K. (Parents aren’t supposed to attend until the last class, so I wasn’t neglecting my daughter.) I was hoping to shave at least three minutes off the time of my first 5K. I didn’t make it because it was a very hilly course, but I did run the entire course – no walking – and I did it almost 1.5 minutes faster than my last time.
I was very pleased with my results. Especially when I discovered – to my great shock – that I placed 3rd in my age/gender group! Y’all, I got a medal in my 2nd 5K! I’d have never dreamed, 15 months ago, that I would ever enjoy running, much less be able to place in any category. Wow!
So, those are the highlights of our week. It’s supposed to be warm and sunny this weekend, after a cold, gloomy week, so I’m hoping we can get out and bike or run. Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?
