Thanks for stopping by! We were a family of three, until we added one more (cat, that is), making us a family of four. In 2012, we added four more...one husband, two girls, and a dog. We have a full plate as a party of eight!

Adoption, blended families, pets, school, running...it's all here. Pull up a chair and read a while. After you do, please leave a little comment love! It makes me happy...and y'all know...if Momma is happy, then everyone is happy...at least at our house!

Running Through January...And Into February

We have been running.
Some of us more than others.  The husband much more than the wife.
But I'll let him tell that story...when I give him the password to the blog.  ;)

We started 2015 running...literally.
At the stroke of midnight.
Through the Christmas lights display at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC.
It was super cold.
And G joined us for that run. 
She says we forced her to go, but she ended up having fun.


The next weekend, we ran in the Grasshopper 5K at the Cowpens Battlefield in Gaffney, SC.
The firing of the cannon signaled the start of the race.
I think it was colder that morning than it was in Clemmons at midnight!


January 25th found us in Atlanta, GA.
We were running in the Hot Chocolate 15k.
It was a lot of fun.
Even with all the hills!
I had NO. IDEA. Atlanta has SO. MANY. HILLS!!
They made up for that at the finish line though.






Last weekend, we headed down the road a little piece to Waxhaw, NC.
I was running the Village 5k while Brian ran the 10k.
Lo and behold, I came in second in my age group!

Today found us at UNC-C for the Forty-Niner Gold Rush 5k.
They warned us about the hill at mile one.
Ummm...yeah.  That hill was four tenths of a mile long.
But we conquered it.
And Brian did it in less than 30 minutes.
