School daze

Seems like all I talk about is school these days. Guess it's on my mind a lot. LOL!

Today was Kara's second day of preschool. She cried again when I dropped her off, but her teachers later said she settled into the groove quickly and did great! They did a worksheet today, where the kids trace a few numbers and then write them freehand, as well as write their name. They put it in her backpack so I would see it. When I looked at it, I almost cried. She did such a good job!! I could definitely tell what each number was. It was so neat! I put it on our fridge as soon as we got home. She is constantly surprising me as to what she can do.

And she went potty at the preschool today! She has this weird phobia of public toilets and is still in pull-ups when we go out, but she saw the other kids going potty and decided she wanted to do it. So yay for that!! I hope to get her out of these darn pull-ups soon!!

Oh, and I did run today. Just on the treadmill, but that's OK. Better than nothing, right? I forced myself to go slower so I could burn some fat. It felt really easy, actually. I will try for a four-miler Friday when Kara is in school.

Today's stats:
Treadmill run:
Distance: three miles
Time: 33:50
Pace: 11:16

Ahhh... Preschool. My daughter is 2.5 and I know it's going to come sooner than I am ready. Glad she had a great time!!!

Great job on your run!

BTN or FUN :-) That's the way I like to see it!

I'm worried about the potty issue and preschool too. Keira is OK with going to the bathroom in public places but I'm not so sure how she'd handle it in school without having me around. We shall see LOL

Great run! It's so great to have the treadmill option!
