We had such a busy week, last week. Monday through Wednesday we were in Topeka at volleyball camp. S learned a lot and I could see the improvement at the end of the camp. I learned a lot, also. They had great drills and progressions. On Wednesday afternoon, we went to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. TT and D rode every roller coaster, TT was fearless. S was scared of the roller coasters but loved the spinning rides. We stayed till the park closed and fell into hotel beds at 11:30pm. Thursday we drove home.
On Friday, S and I left for Rocksprings 4H camp with our Girl Scout Troop. There were 10 girls and 8 moms. We had archery, leadership course and a night swim on Friday.
Friday night, the moms were up late laughing and talking. I think most of the girls only got 3 to 4 hours of sleep because we woke them up at 7am for breakfast. The Rocksprings staff provides all the meals and they are wonderful.
On Saturday, we went horseback riding and canoeing. The girls were wonderfully behaved, no crying or fighting. I am so lucky to have this group of girls and have this time to make memories with them. I highly recommend Rocksprings for family reunions, scout troops, or retreats.
I finished week 3 of "4 month to a 4 hour marathon" with an 11 mile run, yesterday. It was a good running week overall, except I missed one day of cross training since I was very tired from the 6 hours of driving to and from KC on Monday and Tuesday.
I was lucky to have Laura run quarter-mile repeats with me on Thursday. We did 8x400, which was challenging but I know it will make me faster and stronger.
I also booked the hotel room for October. It's a suite with a fireplace and full kitchen and enough room for my friends who are running the relay.
I had a great plan to make cute shirts for the kids to wear on the Fourth but summer school got in the way. This wasn't my original plan but I decided at the last minute to do this. These freezer paper stencils are very easy.
I forgot to take a good picture of the shirt when they were done so this is the best I got. We went to the baseball game and stayed for the fireworks.
