1: HENRY UPDATE:
Henry STILL has some small scabs on his feet from his "hand, foot, and mouth disease" that he came down with over 2 weeks ago. He hasn't been contagious for over a week, and he's been feeling GREAT this past week. We've been having a blast together so far this summer. We started having adventures down by the Mississippi River when he was sick and needed to "burn off some energy" but couldn't be around other kids (at daycare or the park). So the 2 of us would go exploring:
Laughing at military helicopters flying low overhead!
Playing at Hidden Falls.
Checking out the storm damage from last weekend.
(That tree was hollow and just full of "ant mush" seen in front of Henry.)
Throwing weeds into the river.
Coach Jen had me do some 400s yesterday to help get me ready for the road mile that I'm doing in 2 weeks. Here was her plan (which I posted more about this past weekend):
75 degrees and 73 degree dew point - that's more than "tropical."
69.93 / 400 average
I thought I'd look much, much worse when I finished. This doesn't look NEARLY as bad as I felt.
3: FIRST TWO MILE RACE THIS WEEKEND:
Henry and I will continue our father / son adventures this weekend by driving down to spend a day with all 4 Grandpas and Grandmas! My wife's hometown church is hosting their annual summer celebration called "Friendship Day." (Really. How much more perfect small-town Americana can you get?) And they are having a 2-mile road race for the first time. I THOUGHT it was just going to be Pharmie's sister and I racing...
Auntie Annie with Henry and Evie at the pool last weekend!
WE LOOK LIKE BABIESSSSSSS!!!!!
Wish me luck!
