Motivation, Where Are You?

Latest News: Mike got into Boston! He'll be running the Boston Marathon on April 16th. He wasn't sure if he'd get in but he did! It's crazy how much they're charging for hotels there!!

I am sad to say that I haven't been running at all, neither one of us has. I've been wanting to and thinking about it but it just hasn't happened. I know it's mainly because we went on vacation awhile back and I got out of the routine and it's always hard for me to get started again. I need to just do it! I really don't like going to the gym at night after coming home from work, cooking dinner, cleaning up and putting the kids to bed...it's usually around 9:00 then. I think I'd rather get up early and run. My best bet would be to sign up for a race and that will give me an excuse to get out there and take the time for myself and run.

I'm putting this in writing right now (and saying it out loud)...I am signing up for a race by this time next week and will be up and running in the morning starting next week!! You hear that? I'm gonna do it!

We've had a lot going on around here lately. Will turned 2 in July, we went on a trip to Niagara Falls and Toronto in August, James turned 4 last month and Charlie will be 6 next week! Our weekends have been busy with the boys going to hockey practice on Saturdays. Pretty soon it's going to be winter and they'll be skiing as well. Now is the time to get into some type of routine.

Here are some photos of the boys last weekend at the ice rink.

Will (2 years old)
James (4 years old)


Charlie (5 years old)

Back to School

Charlie was so excited to ride the bus to school. I can't believe he's actually in First Grade! What I'm really happy about is how much he really enjoys going to school and learning new things. I liked the fact that Charlie's teacher let the students choose where they each wanted to sit. I was pleased and surprised that Charlie chose the front row!


James loves going to the school bus each morning with his dad & Charlie.

I love this picture.

This is a random picture of the boys over the summer. I felt like I wanted to make sure there was a photo of Will included in this post.

Simple Things

It's the simple things that make them happy, like new pjs! and swinging at the playground...


The Scowl...huh? what?





Yes, we're missing one boy here...well, he's not actually missing, he's at Grammy's house for the week.
