Busy Busy Bees

We've been very busy around here and now both of my kids are sick. I guess it was God's way of telling me to slow down. Just wish he had inflicted this yuckiness on me and not the boys. They are so pitiful (and cranky) when they are sick! My punishment, maybe?! LOL!
I mentioned here that I joined a virtual quilting bee. I'm having so much fun getting to know the other gals in the bee. I got the first fabric the other day and I'm STUMPED. I had a fantastic idea, but I don't have enough of that fabric. Our rules state that we can only send a scrap of fabric and we have to use ALL stash when making the blocks. Its going to be a challenge, but its going to be a blast!
I also completed my first 5K race (official) last weekend. I know, I know, it hasn't been 8 weeks and that means I didn't actually complete the program. But I finished a 5K. I walked some, I ran some and I did it! It was hard, but it was amazing and I'm already making plans for my next one on June 14th! In addition to the 5K that I ran, there was also a 1 mile race and Jason ran that with the boys. They had so much fun and looking foward to running more of the shorter distance races throughout the summer. I'm excited to have running become a fun, family activity that we all share (Jason's a runner and currently training for a BIG ONE) :-)

The boys got their summer haircuts this week. Notice that Jason has the same one! All of my boys are now bald, but with this heat wave we've been having, they are glad to have some relief up there. Now I just gotta remember to apply sunscreen to the top of their heads, too!

Thanks for the comment and for stopping my blog! I love your quilts. (Oh, and I'm also a fan of Rat Race!)

The best/worst day question can be a great way to get my kids (especially my 8YO) to open up a bit more. It's always interesting to ehar their perspective on what events stick out more than others during the day.

Not sure yet, but I might have some extra fabric after I make my block that I could send you. I should know by the end of the weekend.

My boys get the same summer haircut only we usually start it in January; just because at that point their hair is so thick it becomes unbearable. We keep cutting it until fall.

Way to go on the 5k! Congrats!
