PL Week 37


Reading to the girls at night has become the favorite activity. Hubby reads them a chapter or two, if then ask sweetly, from the Fairy series books that we bought years ago for MJ.


JD had a meet at Swartz Creek golf course on this very hot and humid day.

He had a plan:

run first mile in 5:10; don’t go with the leaders. (Check the above photo, he hit it right on pace)

Run 2 mile in 10:20 (nope, a couple seconds off)

Run the rest all out and finish under 16 (it all fell apart and felt all wrong)

He finished 4th with 16:16. Not bad for the heat and the new course but so not what he planned he was not very happy about any of it.


Syd is the proud owner of another gap in her teeth. She lost another one this evening. She could not wait for me to take the photo of her new smile. The girls are keeping the tooth fairy very busy…   


These two are eager beavers this morning. They are super happy to be going to school. So far this school year no one has grumped about getting up early so I am happy about that.



On the way to the school this AM I spotted a balloon. I made cookies for JD’s pasta dinner tonight and Hubby took me out to Applebee’s for dinner. Good day.

On a side note: I decided that this will be my last morning of “stalking” Syd to make sure she makes it to her class line. (she has every morning but I just could not stop going theses last 2 weeks to make sure- I am a worry wart)


JD had his last big Holly meet today. It was a good day for the team. They took 3rd place and Coach is stoked. JD came in 2nd with 16:07.

From Midland Daily news

“Greer’s 2nd place leads Chemic boys;

HOLLY — Jacob Greer’s second-place finish of 16:08 helped Midland High to a third-place score of 102 in the Division 2 boys’ competition at Saturday’s Holly Festival of Races.

Holly won the division with a 71, while Birmingham Seaholm was the runner-up at 81.

“We were the last race of the day, and close to 110 teams ran total, so the footing was terrible,” said Midland coach Marty Hollenbeck of the soggy conditions created by heavy rainfall in recent days.

“(Greer) was sixth or seventh at a mile, and fourth at the two-mile (mark),” Hollenbeck added. “He ran a really smart race, and was close to his personal record.”


The girls table area and bins were getting out of hand. I made it a mission to clean and toss a lot. I filled a trash bag with toys and papers and organized what was left. No sooner had I finished the girls sat down and created art for hours.
