Busy Month!

I've been like the Roadrunner cartoon lately. The Roadrunner, not the Coyote, thankfully. In August, I decided that I was going to commit to running the Dallas (White Rock) marathon in December, so I joined a running group with Luke's Locker for accountability. On Saturday's we do group long runs, and having people to talk to really helps. We did 19 miles this morning, which was tough, but I can handle it. I moved up to a faster group (8-9 min/mile) last week because I felt like I needed a little more of a challenge. And I got it. ;-)

And school started. I have BIG French 1 classes (and more keep getting added) and 160 students total, so I'm constantly on the go at work, teaching, monitoring, grading, prepping. And I've got a really sweet crop of French 1 kids, so I can tell it's going to be a good school year. I'm also teaching a new class of Dual Credit french, which is a challenge, for me to teach and my French 3 kids to learn. But I like challenges. Mostly.

We also celebrated Julia Child's 100th birthday by dressing the part and having souffl├ęs at Rise.
Very fun, and a little silly too. There were a few men in Julia drag, complete with cleaver and rubber chicken.

Indiana has been silly too. Bubble face. :-)

I helped host a wedding shower for our friends, LeeAnn and Geoffrey.
It was baseball themed, so we had ballpark food, decorations. Very fun.
Casey liked the centerpiece I made. 

Last weekend, we stayed at my parents house.
Indiana got to ride on the tractor with Grandpa Jack.

 And we got to go out on a date to the Bishop Art's district. Dinner at Bolsa, S'mores at Tillman's and lots of curiosities in Oak Cliff.
Dad make biscuits and gravy in the morning. Sweet little Indy had fun with with grandparents.

Love this little boy.
