Slightly constipated smile but still pretty darn cute...
Time for school clothes shopping! I always wait until closer to the end of September because they wear shorts until then anyway plus then I don't have to fight the crowds. I took Jackson first because he was most in need of long pants (punk is growing like a weed and all his pants were high waters on him). Jackson does not really care about clothes or fashion so he was quick, in and out of two stores, and done in 1.5 hours.
I love Chester's tail wrapped around Luna...
I've been getting up at 5am every day for a while now and I've really come to love my early mornings! I'm super productive and get so much done before most people even get up! Most days I go to the gym 5:30-7:00, come home, get the boys to school, then go for a quick run before I have to get ready for work. Then in the evenings, when we're not at sports, I go for a bike ride. I've lost 22 pounds and have 13 to go! Unfortunately, and par for the course for Jenn Morrill, I now have shin splints so I can't run or do high impact for a while. I'm pretty bummed and had quite the pity party for myself the other night but have decided I'll do what I can, eat as good as I can, and hope I can get that lost 13 off without running. I don't take pictures of myself at the gym BUT I thought I'd get one of Parker and I before our bike ride yesterday. He's beyond thrilled to be out in the cold, dark, early morning with me. :)
Tegan and Grandpa Morrill came out for one of Josh's soccer games! They must've been good luck because he scored both of his teams goals and they tied!
Tyce has been talking about joining swim team for SO long now. He had to pass all the stroke schools, then we had to wait for a time we could do try outs, and the time finally came! He had to do a 50 back, 50 free, 25 fly, and 25 breast. He rocked it! His breaststroke is exceptional for his age and level of experience. Anyway, him and Bridger both made the team! To say he's excited would be an understatement. When the coach told him he made it he goes, "I bet it's because my Grandma Barraclough prayed for me." So sweet. Here's hoping he loves swimming as much as his mommy and aunts and he carries on our swimmer legacy!
Bring on October!!!
