More to Share...

I forgot to download the camera after the May long weekend when the kids all competed in a community fun run.  Maddi and Claire have competed twice in the event before, but this time little Cooper was eager to give it a go too!! At the ripe old age of 7, he was so adament that he could run a full 5km that i didn't have the heart to say no.  I was more than a little dubious that he could cope with the distance though.... and didn't he prove me wrong!!  :)))   I was so proud of the little trooper.  There wasn't even an age group appropriate for him and he consequently had to run in the under 11's -  running against kids 3 years older than him!  I received a record of placings yesterday and he came 7th!! ... the best part was he had an absolute ball!!  Maddi came 2nd in the under 15's and Claire 3rd in the under 12's.

I'm so pleased the kids love being active...


Belated happy mothers day too!!  Hope all you fabulous mothers had a great day.  We had a really relaxed day, after a very large breakfast in bed, the lovely hand made gifts, cuddles and sleep in's..... what every mum looks forward to really.  :))

Try as i might, this was unfortunately the best pic i got all day!!  My little friend playing round and round the garden with me in bed whilst helping me eat breakfast!



Please excuse my absence through the month of May.... it's a shocker!  I've already had two trips away... with another one scheduled tomorrow.  i have to have a steroid shot in my shoulder thanks to a tendon injury that won't heal!  Then i have two more sporting trips away with the girls, one is 6 hours away and for 3 days, the other is over 2 hours away, but just an overnighter.  Oh, and a birthday in there too - we have one a month now for the next three months....

Creative pursuits are taking a bit of a back seat this month unfortunately... :(((

But i still have managed to sneak a few in... hehe...





Thanks so much for stopping by... and for all the incredible comments on my last post!  thank you all so much...

cheers

The older kids have started running with me to get in training for Cross country at school...and Grace keeps saying she wants to come... she's 7 too. Maybe i should just let her...she might just suprise me!

Mmmmm, having four kids does that to us doesn't it??? But, we wouldn't have it any other way right? Fab pics.

Go Cooper! And well done to the other two for their great placings! 5km is no easy run.
Have a fab May. It does sound like you're going to be busy.

Having had no kids myself, I constantly marvel at you and Janine who have a bunch. You must be fed rocket fuel to have the energy to keep going! cudos to you ladies! and still you find the time to scrap just awesome awesome stuff. Julie my constantly shining beacon of inspiration, you know I'm keeping tabs on you even if I don't leave comments. Sooooo frustrating to have Blogger down for several days!! xxooo
