Weekend Review

Another exciting weekend has come and gone. First off, i'd like to say a special thank you to my sister in law. I would not have been able to finish the room without her help. She was SO helpful with helping me stay focused. Okay, I wasn't focused. I am a little scatter-brained sometimes, and Alexis just stayed with the roller (and following me around cleaning paint off the wood floors). 

We really got a lot accomplished. 



 As you can see, the room started as a bright yellow and blue room. I'm really excited about the change. I think it's a little more grown up, and "guest-roomy". 
In addition to paining the room, putting together a new bed, donating 3 HUGE boxes of my childhood I also had a GREAT weekend at Church. 1) We had the Summer Camp Reports, 2) We finished our study of Esther, 3) We had a Baptism and 4) I got to hang out with 3 little boys on Sunday night. I was helping put away the center pieces after the Baptism Celebration and I was asked by three very willing and active little boys if they could help. OF COURSE I said Yes. It really made me smile to see the three of them learning to take apart center pieces, throw away garbage and sort marbles. I pray that they continue to desire to serve the Lord in any way they can. 
 
Here is husband and I on our way to church on Sunday night. Isn't my husband cute? I sure think so. 

Unfortunately, I didn't get much running done this weekend. We were so busy with church, boys weekend (yeah, my husband had his class over on Saturday while I painted), laundry, organizing, cleaning and sleeping that running just wasn't on my list of "must dos". 

Besides. It's SO HOT! 

Anyway. ... I'm staying positive about this week. My husband and I even walked to 7-11 to get a cookie. I'm so proud of us. :)

Always remember...
You are braver than you believe,
You are stronger than you seem,
and you are smarter than you think! (Winnie the Pooh)

To all my college readers, have a GREAT semester!

Welcome to Week 21 of Marathon Training! I had some knee pain, so I didn't complete my weekday runs, just did some cycling on Monda...
