Week post race is never the greatest for me and this week we had Halloween so my mileage is pretty crappy so far. I volunteered at the school more than usual and I still have to go tomorrow for my usual "shift". It is important to me and also to my kids that I help the teachers and if I have to miss a run well so be it.
I am a Mom who runs, not a runner who is a mother.
I like Halloween with my kids. When I was young, I NEVER went trick or treating...NEVER, NOT ONCE, ZERO TIME. Not by my choice. My dad did not allow it. I am still a little mad about that... Anyway...I always said that if I had kids, I would make sure Halloween is great for them. Our school has a parade and it is really fun to see all the kids in their costumes. I love it. The teachers also dress up, it's a good day!
Jonathan and his best buddy Zeke. Amazing that they are the same age..
Will and his gal pal Kylie. They have been in the same class for the last 3 yrs. She is hilarious. She calls him "Willy"..she is the only person who is "allowed" to do that. :) She tells him when to get a haircut... like an old married couple...really funny.

Speaking of my kids....(I know I know...but I HAVE to...)
The first trimester is over. Already!
I am sure Jonathan did great but I have not seen his results yet.
I already know that Will did GREAT. Better than GREAT actually.
He got 100% on all Language Art bench mark tests.
He got 100% on all Math bench mark tests.
He got 100% on his book report for the trimester.
He is the only one in his grade with a report card like that and well it would be impossible to be prouder than I am. He really is a great kid. Love you Will!
Awards Day is next week and it will be a good day!
We need a good day over here.... Last week Bill had a 2nd interview for a job near where we live and on Friday he got the call that he finished 2nd and they offered the position to another guy....Back to square 1.... Yesterday we lost our health insurance and we now have to pay a lot of $$$$ for private insurance. It sucks. Coming from a country where everyone gets health coverage for free....this is really frustrating for me.
While I am on a almost non running post...I am just gonna keep going...
I have been busy with my little in home business..making cards orders.
