It’s been a minute! Welcome back to the blog, I wanted to let you know what I’ve been up to this past week! First of all, I had like 5 blog posts ready and I just never hit publish *face palm* so HOPEFULLY you guys actually see this post!
I’m sure you’ve already heard about the terrible flooding in my hometown, the damage is terrible – some/most say it’s the worst flood we’ve had, but also comparable to the 1990 flood for how fast it came on.
We’ve been going on daily walks to check out the damage and the progress being made on the cleanup efforts. Check out this fire extinguisher stuck in this fence down by the river!
Fun fact about me, I HATE board games and I really don’t even love playing cards so I took Carver, Georgia, and Gannon on a bike ride while the “adults” had fun playing board games. We went and visited Papa Moo’s rock.
Gannon and Georgia had a rare moment of getting along and were learning how to stick their tongues out. The pictures were adorable.
Carver is learning how to ride bike in town navigating traffic, looking both ways, stopping and braking. He LOVES bike riding and Craig even took him riding on a mountain bike trail last weekend! Ever since then he rides his bike every chance he gets.
I also achieved a personal goal of mine, the trout run trail in Decorah is really tough, there are some massive, steep climbs. I actually have started and quit it many many times. I FINALLY finished all 10 miles in an hour and 5 minutes the other day. The feeling of accomplishment was AWESOME! It’s the perfect workout, there are plenty of times where you work really hard, and then cruise, and then work hard again, and then cruise. I LOVE riding the trail and I’m hoping to fit in a few more runs before snow falls.
Carver started school and some of my favorite time with him is when he gets home from school and we visit as he eats a snack on the counter.
Gannon has an appointment in Iowa City next week to make sure he doesn’t need another surgery on his testicle/hernia. Mom has a cancer check up, Carver’s birthday and birthday party is coming up, we’ve got a lot on our to-do list in the next two weeks INCLUDING something I’m really excited about but more to come on that later!
