Fall is generally a busy time for my family. I have two soccer players and a competitive gymnast, so that means we are travelling around the state to meets. My oldest, the gymnast, and I took a trip to Colorado Springs where we visited the Olympic Training Center. Our tour guide was a fencer living and training at the center. Those athletes are dedicated!
We also got to see the Fierce Five perform. It was so exciting being thisclose to Olympians Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Weber and the rest. We even got autographs after the big show.
While on this girl's trip, we stopped into IKEA where I bought some things to make a mini-mudroom that I'll share with you later on this week.
The next weekend, I helped organize and attend a "Women's Camp" in Beaver Creek, Colorado that was sponsored by Girls on the Run. If you're not familiar with Girls on the Run, it's an elementary school program that coaches girls to run a 5K race. It also provides lessons on self-esteem and health. It's a GREAT program for girls. I'm going to be helping coach my school's group this spring.
Women's Camp was filled with motivational speakers, activities, delicious food, and of course, RUNNING in the gorgeous fall weather!
As you might remember, all of my girls transferred to a Catholic school this year. The school is wonderful, although it is quite a drive from our home. I've been spending lots of time in the car as well as volunteering at school. I've been doing most of my blog reading on my phone while I have short breaks, which is not very conducive to commenting! So, I apologize for being out of touch.
My middle daughter has been having a hard time transitioning to the new school and the tougher academic requirements. So, I was so proud of her when she was chosen to read the Gospel in front of the entire school last week. She did such a good job!
She has also been busy playing on her soccer team, which is undefeated this season with only one game to go. GO FAIRIES!!!
My youngest never stops talking. In fact, her voice is always hoarse from her constant stream of talking. At least she makes up for the other two, who barely say anything!
She is also playing soccer. It's so cute to watch the little girls.
I have jury duty on Monday (praying I don't get picked). And then my parents are flying in from Minnesota to spend the week with us. I'm so excited!!!
While these little girls keep me
