Febreze Sport

Febreze Sport

I am trying out the Febreze sports collection. Many of my workout clothes are dryfit and tend to smell the same after a wash as before...very sweaty. The spray seems to work well on my shoes, gym bag, and car seats. I am soaking some items in the laundry odor eliminator right now and hoping for the best.

Last Day

Today was the last day of school for S and T. I was a little sad because I will miss all the teachers and students over the summer. S said she wasn't sad because she "has connections" and can call her friends over the summer. T got a list of his friend's phone numbers so they can plan play dates.

I start summer school June 8th and the kids will be doing fun summer classes also. D is planning on going to the gym everyday. I am looking forward to a relaxing, fun, hot summer.

Pink Hair

S has been asking for a year to color her hair pink but the school rules say "no un-natural hair colors." Well tomorrow is the last day of school so I made an appointment with the wonderful Jeni at House of Hair and 2 hours later S walked out with this.

Summer Clothes

Summer Wardrobe

Polyvore is a fun site where you can create collages of items from the web. Also, there is beautiful layered art. These are some of the items I would love to live in this summer.

Farmer's Market

This morning, I took the kids to the Farmer's Market. First, they each got a cinnamon roll then we walked all around and decided what to buy. We bought a hanging basket, tomatoes, huge stalks of asparagus, a small butterfly weed plant and purple sage. All this for 20 bucks.

My garden is coming along nicely, I will have some pictures next week.

Tall Tales and Heroes

Yesterday was a busy day. I went on a zoo field trip with TT's second grade class. TT's favorite animals, right now, are the fruit bats. We were one day early so we didn't get to see the new Tiger Trek.

In the evening TT had baseball practice and ST was in her school's musical. The kids did a great job. The music was wonderful and they used BIG voices.

Wasting time

Two of my favorite ways to waste time on the internet are: F My Life and Cake Wrecks

I am not a big fan of gardening. I know that some people love it but I find no joy in pulling weeds, watering, and watching my plants die.

My Girl Scout co-leader is a happy gardener, she has a huge vegetable and herb garden plus perfect landscaping all around her home. She has given me hope that I can have a nice front garden this year. The above picture is before and below is after. I pulled out all the overgrown grass and moved the living plants to pots. Now it is ready for my friend to come and help me purchase and plant a beautiful landscape.

I also planted a little herb garden in the boxes under our front windows. Wish me luck.

Great Plains Nature Center

If you are looking for a good place to run or walk in Wichita, try Great Plains Nature Center. There are no bikes, pets, or skates just you and the paved trail. I love the little rush of adrenaline I get when I hear animals moving in the trees and prairie grass. "Is it a snake, beaver, deer and turkey?" Whatever it is, it makes me run faster.

Congrats to Becca, Judy, Laura, Lori, and Nikki. You ladies are my heroes!!

Knee Pain

After the 10K in Oklahoma City my knee had a little pain, which is not something I have experienced before. It doesn't hurt all the time but I have noticed that it is a a tiny bit creaky and is sore after my runs. I'm not too concerned about it but I think I will keep an eye on it and hope that it doesn't get worse.
