3 Things Thursday! You're totally excited, huh?

1.  I AM TIRED!  Utterly fatigued!  The kind of sleep where you think you will totally be able to sleep but your almost too tired to do it.  All this strength training is making my sleepy and tired.  Yesterday I totally felt like I was in a fog until...STARBUCKS at 4pm...perfect.  Hadn't had one all week and it totally woke me up and got me excited for my functional fitness class.  I am so excited to see how this is going to change my body and also improve my running.  I did nothing but running last year...I know, not good...but it was hard to fit it all in.  This is a new year and new adventures to try!  I'm really enjoying everything I am doing and I'm totally burning some major calories...CAN I GET A HOLLA, HOLLA?


A couple of these gals will be there, wish they all could!

2.  TONIGHT is dinner with my friends, my running, bloggie buddies.  Looking forward to catching up and seeing what everyone has been up to.  Face-to-face is always so much nicer than texting, blog comments...you get the idea!  Also excited to have some GREEK food, yummy.  Ladies, let's remember to get some pictures!  If anyone else wants to come...let us know.  What's a quick flight to Seattle?  It's just dinner, you don't even need to stay over night...just fly in and then catch a RED eye home?  Just an idea!




3.  I AM TIRED!...Oh wait...I already said that!  Max is FIVE!  And I have to say...so far, so good, actually SOOO GREAT.  He is such a great kid.  He is growing up and I never thought that I would be a sappy "my child is getting older" kind of mom.  I thought I would love it...and I do, but it's also so bitter sweet to think he is starting Kindergarten next fall.  I remember when he was born it seemed like a lifetime away until school.  Now I'm asking myself, did I do it right, should I have done more things in his years before school.  I worry about kids being nice to him, and him having hurt feelings.  Before grade school, I chose what teacher he would have, I knew most of the parents, the kids...and all that is going to change next fall.  I'm sure these are all normal thoughts, but it's scary being a mom and sending your 1st child off to BIG BOY school.  But the other part is he has calmed down so much, is so sweet, so helpful and I really enjoy being around him.  I'm going to miss him.  Gosh you would think he was leaving for college or something!  Who knew I would feel this way?  Not me!  I still have some time left and I'm just enjoying the time between now and then.

Hi... I am a new follower.

Here is what we have in common -- adorable boys about the same age that we are freaking out about being in kindergarten next year that have 'prayed Jesus into their hearts."

My 4 year old (5 in July) is just delighting me all the time with his sweet spirit, and fun approach to life. I have a cool thing though.... when he is at kindergarten, he will be coming to school WITH me, since I am a band teacher at the school he will be going to!

So anyway... just wanted to say hey, and tell you that I know. Being a mommy to boys is awesome. :)

So I looked up Kindergarten and realized that end of next month they start registration?? WHAT THE??

I am TIRED too, like UGH can I please sleep in my desk chair tired.

EXCITED to see you tonight!!

yes kindergarten is a whole new world. talk about "out of your hands". Instead of just getting to know one or two teachers that will be working with your child you have the...librarian, p.e., art, music, etc.

my baby is off to kindergarten in the fall as well....boo hoo!!

Happy that you get to hang with bloggy/running buddies! Have fun...wish I was there! I could use a pep talk!

Ah kindergarten....it is a WHOLE new world. No more picking the kid up and going to do whatever, no more heading out of town on Friday. The registration process? It's like your signing them up for the military or something...But what an exciting time for MAx!!! he will love LOVE it!!

Oh and what time is dinner? Pick me up at 5???? just kidding, not a funny joke. I wish though.

Makinley is in 1st grade this year which is full day. I'm in a panic knowing she is my baby and this precious time has gone so fast.

Wish I was sharing in the bloggy dinner. I'm so jealous :) I hope you girls have a blast.

Cute! I have a 6 year old boy in Kindergarten and he LOVES it!! I love hearing his stories each day after school. It's so fun. Don't worry, he'll be fine!!
I have 2 boys too, 4 and 6, and they are awesome. Have fun at dinner!! Jealous beyond measure!

I added yoga to my running and strength training. That takes time away from the other two but I sleep better and have fewer aches and pains.
Kindergarten is like college, only for smaller people.
