quick update!!!

Whew! The weeks just seem to fly by.
I wanted to let you know (Hi mom and dad I know you read this now!) that the running gals are heading downtown in a few minutes to hit the Lulu store and get settled in for our race.

I'm pretty excited! If you click here you can check out the route and info on the Sunrun. They have more entrants than ever before (56,000 I believe. How insane is that?!)

I took a break from blogging last week (not sure if you noticed. I did.) to read a couple of classics I've wanted to read forever: Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park by Jane Austin. Oh, how thankful I am to be a woman today instead of back then. I was struck with how boring everyone's lives seemed. How did they fill their days? And yet they were not unhappy. Something to think about. All this busyness does not always add to our lives in a positive way.

Oh and Madeline is competing with her little jazz troupe again on Monday. She loves it and they are all so cute! I can't wait! I'm pretty proud of the progress they're making. She had an extra Ballet class today because they take their first (yikes) exams next month. She's getting so grown up. I can't believe that's my rough and tumble little girl all in pink, standing so prim and proper.

...So I'm off!
Wish us luck! And think of us panting away amongst the hoards.
Look for pics and info next week.....

Wow, that's ALOT of people to be running with. I'm sure it is quite exciting! Hope your run is great.

I had no idea that dancers had exams.

Go girls! I am excited for you and wish you wind at your backs and cramp free legs:)
So exciting about Mads' dancing, I would love to watch her one of these days.
We are having a blizzard here so I hope the weather is much more accommodating for you guys.

Interesting...boring vs. busy. I guess the key is to find your own happiness in what ever way you can.

I LOVE Pride and Prejudice! Not such a big fan of Mansfield Park though. What did you think of it? My other Austen fave is "Persuasion".

I've posted about Jane Austen and I'm a man. I cannot say that I've read the books, but I have seen most of them in movie form (in some cases in more than one version).

Nice job on reading both of them in such a short period of time.
