Life can be such a funny thing sometimes. Here are a few things going on in our lives currently. Some of which we are super excited about and others that are not so fun. Either way we are blessed and grateful for this sweet time in life.
Running: I made it a goal to run a half marathon 6 months after having James. I didn’t feel like paying anyone to subject myself to this running so I missed out on a sweet t-shirt, water stations and a goodie bag. However, I did get a beautiful run on the Rillito Rivet and a great cheering squad at the end. If you you like running even just a little you should totally run a half marathon. It is such a FUN distance to run and does not require the crazy amount of training a full marathon does.
Housing: After a long and winding road we have the keys to our new house. We knew we would like the house, but we are seriously falling more I’m love with it everyday. The cool thing is even though we are living in it, both Austin and I feel as if it is not really ours but a gift from God that should be used as such. We can’t wait to use the house to bless the community. Be on the look out for a Baum-B-Q Soon!!
Knee: Another goal of mine was to play soccer again after having James. I started playing for my same coed team from before and three games in I tore my ACL. Wa wa. Pretty much as bad as it gets for a knee injury. Not excited for surgery but I can’t walk so I don’t really have a choice. Bummer.
Work: I was getting a bit stir crazy staying with James all day, even though I love being with him. So I decided to go back to work part time. I started this week and I LOVED it! It is nice to get out of the house for a bit, do something where I know what I am doing. My job is being super flexible with me which is great especially with my new knee situation. We also found an awesome babysitter who I know, and trust which makes the transition so much easier.
Grateful Hearts: Austin and I are super grateful for so many things right now. Our house and how it all came together. For my parents welcoming us in their home for three months. We will sure miss them, but I am pretty sure they will miss James more. However, we only live five minutes away now so I am sure they will be over a lot. We are also thankful for our friends who have been helping us move! We have such a great community.
That’s all for now. For some reason all this makes me think of the pump up cheer from Friday Night Lights: CLEAR EYES. FULL HEARTS. CAN’T LOSE!
