Springtime for Hitler and Germany

Oh, Spring has sprung and I couldn't be happier! The kids can finally play outside without taking 30 minutes to get ready and even though I have to deal with muddy clothes and lots of baths, I'm okay with that. Another thing I'm loving this spring more than previous years is that I am more in shape than I have been in previous spring seasons and that means I feel more up to going out and playing with my kids.

I'm starting up running again, though I do need to get new shoes, and while I can't run for 30 minutes straight like I could in August, I am still going to start up the Couch to 5K program again. I'm excited to be starting in March rather than May like I did last year. It should mean that I'll be ready to run some 5K fun runs this summer! Marah and I even ran to the park today while I pushed Alex in the stroller and I was still able to run and play on the field while we were there. Maybe that seems like a small thing to some but, at 200 lbs. (and working on it), it's a big deal for me!

So this spring has started out with lots of this-

and this-

and this-

Marah got hit in the face with a soccer ball

Jenna has a new friend from the apartments behind our house.

I think I'm out of my funk... and I'm loving it. :)

Make each day count!

  6. Looks like a great introduction to spring! We, too, were enjoying all there was to enjoy about the beautiful weather, until the skies darkened and we haven't seen the sun for a few days! Oh well...the sun will return and we'll be right out there!
