It was an early start for me this morning. I heard my kids playing at 4:30am. Yikes! I quickly sent my daughter back to her bed and tried to get my son back to sleep. She is still sleeping 3 hours later and he has been awake the whole time! So I'm linking up a day late with Kacey from Doodlebugs Teaching for her awesome Five for Friday linky party. Click the picture below to join in the fun if you'd like.
Let's get started with my 5 random things from this past week...
I am back in my walking routine. I have 2 friends to walk with in the mornings. It's really nice to have friends to walk with. Helps the time go faster and I usually don't even realize we've done our usual 3 miles. One day we did 4 miles we were so busy talking. Yesterday I went and did another cross fit workout after walking 3 miles. It was so hard but I was so proud of getting through it and not passing out or puking. Ha ha! My friend gave me workouts to do at home today and tomorrow. Today I have to do 4 rounds of a 400m run, 15 push-ups, and 15 sit-ups. I'm headed out to do it in a bit. Just waiting for my breakfast and coffee to settle a bit. And it's raining so I'm hoping that it will stop before I have to go out and run. Tomorrow I have a 1 mile run. Monday I get to rest. :)
For preschool story hour this week we started some Spring activities. I read A Mother for Choco. It's a great story and it's really good for adoption. If you have friends who are thinking about adoption, waiting, or have adopted, it would make a great gift. Our craft was spring chicks. I found the idea here. Here's Levi's. They turned out super cute.
I was at the grocery store this week doing some grocery shopping. I know prices have gone up since VAT (7.5% tax) started in January. I didn't realize how much until I got home and was putting my yogurt away. GASP!
Today is our Easter egg hunt with all our Embassy friends and then the neighborhood Easter egg hunt. I need to bring a dish. The first event starts at 10 and is a brunch. I'm making and bringing this.
I'm off to go bake! Happy Saturday everyone!
