Week 4 progress + Parker update: Kindergarten Round-Up

I'm happy to report that I've completed 2 of the 3 workouts for this week so far. Man, let me tell you running 5 minutes at a time is REALLY TOUGH! But, I managed to get through it :)

I didn't know how much I'd actually "like" training for this sort of thing, but so far it has really defined some key areas in my life: commitment, perseverance , and dedication. It's funny how I never really thought I'd be 'one of those' runners, but sadly...I have turned into one. For all of my fellow runners out there -- you know what I'm talking about!

We attended Kindergarten Round-up on Tuesday evening for Parker. MAN is it hard to get my head around him attending school full time already this fall. He will be attending Pine Meadow Elementary this fall and is *really* excited about it! We got to meet the principal, teachers, nurse, food director, transportation director, and get a tour of the building. And, Parker's favorite part of the whole experience was riding the school bus. He talked the entire time we were on our ride -- and pointed out to me how very fun it is going to be for him when he gets to ride it every day. I'm not certain why it's such a big deal - but think it is awfully cute that he enjoys it so far :)

There are a few more forms (+ the dreaded tuition payment) that need completed before he will be all set. PME offers looping - which essentially means that he would have the same teacher for Kindergarten AND 1st grade. I'm contemplating this decision.

Parker requested the movie: Night at the Museum for our Friday night snuggle party tomorrow -- I'm looking forward to it, as I always do!

So excited for you! I would not have that kind of ambition to train right now...keep up the good work!

And I cannot believe that Parker is going to kindergarten...our kids are growing up way too fast! :)
