Cathy and I have been training to run a 5K for about 8 weeks now. We decided to run one in Mechanicville. Yesterday was the race and it went really well. Cathy was really fast but she has also run races before. I wanted to finish and I did. I was so thankful to have Chad and the boys and Michelle cheering me on every few roads or so. Jacob would say "Go Mommy Go!!" and Nicholas was saying "Mommy, run faster, there is a bear behind you!!" It was so cute:) I have another race in just over 3 weeks so I better keep up the training.

Today at Jake's preschool they had a Mother's Day picnic. When we got there they gave all the mom's a pin to wear. The kids sang a few songs. Then we ate a yummy lunch on picnic blankets. Afterwards, we did a painting craft and planted some flowers in pots the kids each designed. It was a lot of fun. Jake has been singing the songs at home all week but of course he wouldn't sing them today. He was really excited to have me there for snack time and to do the fun activities with him. I love my little boys:)
Nicholas got a white board for his birthday from Aunt Michelle. He uses it everyday. He likes to write notes to me and draw pictures. He also practices writing his name and letters. I write him a note every night after he falls asleep so he will have one to read when he wakes up. Jake also likes to draw pictures on it. It is cute to see how creative they are. Here are a couple pictures I was able to get before they were erased.
