|At my cousin's wedding. Man, we're a good-looking family!|
On another note, we're getting ready for the oldest to start back to school, eeek!!! She'll be in the first grade, and we have our Meet the Teacher night tonight. I'm more than nervous to meet her, and I'm hoping she's as fantastic as the teacher we had last year. If so, we're all good. My daughter will also be testing very soon for her blue belt in TaeKwonDo, which is super badass in my opinion. The kid is so pretty, we need her to be tough so she can help me fight the boys that come around! I'm also seeing about getting her into her school's Girls on the Run program a year early since I MAY be coaching it this year. It appears they're in major need of more help, and I was planning on doing it once she was old enough anyway. Let's hope they make an exception for the coach's kid, I think it'll be a blast! If you have an elementary-aged daughter, you may want to see if you have the program at your school. It trains the girls on not only running but also self-esteem and healthy living, culminating in a fun little 5k at the end of the year. I adore the program, and it's spreading like wildfire. Look into it, you'll be glad you did!
As for my youngest, we're getting him started in soccer soon. Because we're apparently not busy enough. But the poor little guy just sits and watches sister's activities so much that it's time he has his own now that he's old enough. He's over the moon that he'll be on a soccer team, and I think he'll kick some major butt at it. He's already better at dribbling than big sister! I also plan on getting in some good mini hikes in with him and the pup during the lovely fall school days. If I didn't keep him active, he would be content to play video games all day long. He's already in nerd-boy training, but at least he'll be a healthy nerd like the rest of the family!
I've been working a bit and studying when time allows. I think I'll be able to test for my Group Fitness Instructor certification by early October, and then once my marathon is over I can really dive into teaching. I'm trying to get a small bootcamp class together at my studio presently (PT's can teach classes of 6 or fewer) and it'll give me some great practice for the future. I'm stoked! Now I just need to make my schedule allow for me to remember everything I have going on and allow for house-cleaning time!
How is your school prep and/or race training going? I'd love to hear what this Fall has in store for you!
