Green Corn Starch

For mothers day, my family decided that we would volunteer as color throwers for the Color Run in downtown Seattle, which was a fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House. About 6000 people had signed up to run a 5k in white clothes and were sprayed with 5 different colors along the way. It was a lot like the festival of colors that I had gone to in March, only this was a fundraiser. We were in charge of the green color and we definitely got our share of say the least! It was so fun and such a great way to spend one of the few sunny days we have had this year. After the race was over, we walked around the park/fountain area next to the Space Needle for a while...we had SO many people stop us and ask to take our pictures. I guess that it isn't an everyday event to see 8 people covered in green corn starch from head to toe :)

Swim team started on Monday and its going pretty well so far. Just a few little registration problems, but nothing too major, which is always a good thing. We have about 150 swimmers this year and luckily I have been able to remember/learn everyone's names with the exception of a few here and there. I am hoping that this season goes well and is fairly quick!

I am so excited for LB to come home. I miss her so much! I am super excited for the adventures that I have ahead of me with my friends that are home so far and can't wait for the last few to finally get here already!

One of my friends from high school just go married and found out she is having a baby boy this coming fall, which is super exciting! And, one of my other friends that I've known for a long time just got engaged!! Everyone is growing up and its pretty crazy how fast things have changed in such a little time since graduation high school. I'm excited to see what happens next!

Let the Craziness Begin...

We had swim team try outs on Saturday, and I was surprised to see how many people we had try out. I am excited for the season to start and to get the ball rolling! We finally have our coaching staff looks like it should be a pretty fun year! My fingers are crossed that everything goes well this year and that we can win a little here and there. It was fun to see the kiddos that I haven't seen in a while, and loved all the little hugs that my little kids gave me when they walked in and saw me at the pool. Practices start on Monday, which means that I start living at the pool again...which is okay with me as long as I get a nice tan ;)

I got to Skype with some of my college friends yesterday, which was really fun! I talk to Annie a lot, but of course it was still exciting to see her! Colin and Thad were having dinner at her house. It made me miss Rexburg so much and I cannot wait for September to be here already so I can go back. 

Sorry - my posts have been super boring lately...not much has been happening, but as more people slowly start to come home, it should pick up a little!

This will happen.

Since I've got nothing to do for a little while...or until swim team starts up and my friends come home from college, I've decided its time to get back into my habit of working out. It doesn't matter what type of exercise I am doing, just as long as I am doing something, thats all that matters! Summer is just around the corner, so its time to get back in shape! Wish me luck!!!
