Racing News

Just a little update.
I finished my 2nd 5K last Saturday. I managed to cut 4 minutes off my time. I finished in 35:35. I was very happy with that. I've been having some leg pain and didn't run Sunday. I'm going to try to get back at it tomorrow morning. I've got like 9 weeks left before my 10K. I'm so excited. I never would have thought I should be excited to run 6 miles.
I've been glancing through our homeschool things as I'm not as organized as I need to be right now. I'm having a hard time getting started because I had set my heart on starting school while I was on leave. We are going to detour and do some early 1900's study for the next couple weeks. Then we are going to do a month long unit on Washington and government. That should go well with all the political news. After our trip to Washington, we'll back-track to where we were supposed to start and discuss Greek history and Jewish tradition. I know that is a strange combination but it will go with what we have scheduled to do.
I'll try to find some pictures to post this week.

Great job Amanda! Keep up the good work.

It is hard to believe that summer is coming to a close and it is school time again. Time to hit the books!!
