4 Trips

After running 1 1/2 miles

It's been a while since I have written about the kids.  BSF has started up, Stephen is trying to hire 2 girls at the office and keep them all happy and the kids have just been going with the flow, but I thought it was time for an update, especially since I made 4 trips to Cavett's elementary school today. 

Trip #1- Easy and predictable, dropped him off at shool with Kendrick in his pj's.

Trip #2- Surprised Cavett at lunch and he got to eat on the stage with me.  Afterwards, made a shopping trip at the school book fair. 

Trip #3-  Took Kendrick with me for Run Club after school.  The gym teachers marked out a half a mile track around the school grounds.  There were about 150 kids and each time they passed "go" got a mark on their card.  There are prizes when you get up to 5 miles.  To my surprise both kids totally ran a mile by themselves with short bursts of walking.  What was difficult was that Kendrick wanted to hold my hand as we ran.  We ended up doing a 1 1/2 in about 30 minutes.  Not bad.  They will now be signed up for the 1 mile Fun Run in Allen in a few weeks!

Trip #4-  Headed back for "Milk and Cookies" Night at the school.  The kids got to dress in their pj's and listened to stories being read by teachers in the library.  Afterward was a PTA meeting with the milk and cookies.  Of course, Kendrick doesn't know a stranger and headed right for a teacher's lap! 

Did I mention that Stephen is on a plane to Vegas?

I. am. exhausted.
