So most days I throw my hands up and don't write anything. Mainly because nothing really comes to me, not because I don't WANT to do it. I guess my life is just kind of repetitive and that makes it kind of boring for the blog. I mean there are only so many hockey pictures of my kids you can look at, right? But, but, but look at my girl!!!
Is she not the cutest? I can't even tell you how happy it makes me to see Ella playing hockey. Not because it's hockey (I couldn't care less) but because she's doing something that makes her happy. She was really nervous going out on the ice (her first official practice). I could tell that she was nervous and she admitted it.
When she came off the ice, I asked her how it went. She told me that it was like she was in a dream the whole time. She said that after 2 minutes of being on the ice she said to herself, "Ahhhh yeah, I'm totally doing this." Meaning, she wants to PLAY hockey (not just the learn to play program). Then she asked me how long she was out there. When I told her it was about an hour, she said, "Wow, it felt like just 10 minutes." So yeah she loves it and seeing her happy doing something outside her "wheelhouse" makes me happy. She doesn't just have to be just an artsy fartsy, dancing, singing, girly girl.
Speaking of girly girl. Have you seen my boys' hair?
Yeah they're growing it out. They want "hockey hair." I'm not sure what that is entirely, but half of me thinks it's cute and the other half wants to run for the clippers. I do appreciate, however, that Nicholas is embracing his individuality with his hair. He's usually too afraid to step outside his comfort zone and this is something totally new and different for him.
And let's face it, Jack is just along for the ride. Whatever Nicholas does, Jack does. Don't get me wrong, we all know Jack does Jack, but he really does seem to idolize and mimic his big brother. Nothing wrong with that.
Oh and guess what? I signed up for another half marathon. It's Just a Short Run and it's on March 29th at North Park.
I've done Just a Short Run before (but did the 8.1 miler) and I'm so looking forward to this race. I love racing at North Park because I know ever nook and cranny of that place and I know when to put in effort and when to hold back. I'm hoping to have a good race, but I'm really just using it as another training run.

Local Peeps: Have you ever done Just a Short Run? Running this year?
You should say hello when you see me heavy breathing on the course :D
