I always dread this time of year because of course my 2 stepsons are out of school, and I also have 3 or 4 daycare kids. Which makes a whole lot of kids and a whole lot of chaos. I don't do good with chaos. (So why do I have a home daycare then? I don't know.)
But I'm determined to make this summer good. I will find joy in the journey!
Here's how it started out.
Last night I went for a run around the neighborhood, leaving the boys alone. (They're 14 and 16) No problem, right? Wrong.
I was at mile 3 and get a call from Matthew saying hurry home, Jonah fell out of a tree. WHAAAAT??
I sprinted home, cutting through lots of backywards. Needless to say, that was my fastest mile.
Sure enough, Jonah thought climbing a tree would be fun. Which I agree, it does sound like fun. But, he slipped and fell out. He thought he broke his ankle, but I wasn't sure.
I haven't seen that boy cry in about 10 years, and his cry broke my heart!
Thankfully, Jeremy was on his way home, so I met him in town, and he took him to the hospital. It's just a sprain. But, he won't be playing football for a few weeks now.
I didn't get my long run in this weekend, for the first time in months! I really missed it.
I went to a friends graduation, and then later to my niece's graduation party. My weekend was packed full.
Saturday will be half #8, the Indy Womens Half marathon. I can't wait!
I'm hoping we got the drama out of the way and now can have a fun, relaxing summer break!!
Have you ever broken a bone?
I never have!
