Jones participated in a camp at a local art center this summer. The center hosts local artists and frequently exhibits local and new artists. This year they did an exhibit of artwork from the summer classes and Jones decided to enter one of his creations. Since it was one of only two 3-D submissions, his was displayed on a pedestal in the middle of the room! It’s hard to see, but he created a tree, a person and some sort of creature out of clay.
Today I asked Shoo to take a 12 pack of toilet paper upstairs to the bathroom. When I finished putting away the rest of the groceries, this is what I found:
Guess that’s what happens when you ask a three year old to help.
On the running front, I had a nice 6 mile run on Saturday where I averaged a 9:23 pace. I felt like I was running at a really easy pace and could have definitely gone longer, but I ran out of time. Sunday I ran 4.5 miles with various speed intervals: 1 mile in 8:18, 1 half mile in 4:03 and a quarter mile in 1:58. My overall pace was just over 9 minutes. Today I ran 3 horribly slow, lead legged miles, but at least I got them done.
Shoo starts preschool tomorrow and I’m running around like crazy getting ready for our party next weekend. I have 10 miles planned during Shoo’s 2.5 hour session on Wednesday, which will be tight with drop off, running, cleaning up, and getting there for pick up. Worst case, I guess I’ll pick him up before I shower.
I hope to get packages out to Jess and Amanda soon and will likely post pictures.
