As for the new shoes, Dan has a buddy that gets a pretty decent discount at Nike, so he's hooking us up with some sweet gear. I'm really excited because my shoes are in a definite need of refreshing. I've been running in a pair of Adidas Clima Cool for I think almost 4 1/2 years and I alternate them with a pair of Nike trail shoes that are working on 3 years. Both shoes have more that 600 miles on them (individually) and the Adidas (which didn't have much cushioning to begin with) feel like running on concrete. Needless to say, I am super excited to be updating my kicks! The color I ended up ordering wasn't my first choice, but I'm glad that the orange and grey ones weren't in my size because I think these are going to be awesome!! They should be here early next week and I'll let you know how they work out. (Sorry the picture is so small, if you'd like to see a better picture check them out here.)
Emme starts 1st grade tomorrow. She is sooooooo excited. Today we are going to go through her school clothes to pick "the perfect outfit" and then we'll paint her finger and toenails... you know, all the essential night before school starts things. This evening there is an open house at her school so we'll go and meet her teacher and check out her classroom. It should be a good time!
