Strawberry Picking

It's officially summer and I officially have a kindergartner. Landon graduated Pre-K Thursday night and I'm slowly going through pictures. As a kickoff to summer I took Landon to a local strawberry field and we picked strawberries for the first time.

Just getting started

Mother's Day 2013

I had a wonderful Mother's Day, but as mother's we really don't get a day off do we? I still had to do laundry, do little errands, get ready for school tomorrow, etc... Jason did a great job though trying to make my mother's day a little extra special.

We started off the morning by attending church. I feel blessed that these little guys made me a mother
After church my mom came over for lunch a exchange a few little gifts

My beautiful mom and I. She really is the BEST mother and grandmother to our family
I just had to post this picture. We both had the giggles for some reason and could not stop laughing.

Jason and the boys bought me a running medal and bib number holder. It's being made and custome made for me, so I hope to get it next week. I cant wait to see it and hang my medals on it.
After lunch I did a few errands around town and of course a little run with some other fabulous moms

Happy Mother's Day

Muffins with Mom

This morning our school hosted a Muffins with Mom. Each class had their own special gift made just for their mom and of course muffins and juice. Since I work at the boys school I had the privilege to attend both their classes. Houston's was yesterday morning and Landon's was this morning.

Landon showing off his gift he made me. It's a tile with his picture on it. This is our last Muffins with Mom together in preschool. I register him for Kindergarten Monday. 
Loving on my boy

We are officially 2 weeks out till the last day of school. And in 2 weeks from today Landon graduates Pre-K.

Relay Rutherford 2013

Yesterday I had the privilege to run in my first relay race with 4 other AMAZING runners and friends.
The race started in Eagleville, Tn and ended 53 miles away in Smyrna, Tn. It was one of the best times I have ever had.

Our team name was 8 Boobs and a Dude, haha. 
There are 5 runners on a team that have to complete 18 legs that equal 53 miles
There were about 6 teams from my running club that participated. 

It rained the whole day and when I mean rained like 100% ALL day. I think I changed clothes, socks and shoes about 4 times.

This was another team from our club, TuTu much
Crystal running her 1st leg in down pour rain
Waiting on our runners
I ran 3 legs with a total of 10 miles. This was after my last 4 mile leg, that was mostly uphill and all in rain
We started at 7:15 am in Eagleville and ended at 3:19 pm in Smyrna. About 10 to 15 minutes ahead of our projected finish time. Seriously these people are AMAZING
My first medal made of wood. I think its time to invest in a medal holder.

Rain and all it was an amazing experience and I cant wait to do it all over again next year.
