Running with shoes!

Hi again everyone. I realize it has been a while since my last post and I'm not totally sure why. I had thought (and even said out loud) that now that I'm no longer working, I would be able to post more. Hmmmm. I'll have to work on that. I've got lots of pictures (knitting, apples, soccer, playgrounds) and lots to talk about (back to school, knitting, soccer, not working). But, for now I'll stick with running.
We set up a very tiny hurdle course in the back yard and then ran around in circles for about an hour jumping over (and sometimes tripping over) that bamboo hurdle. It was fun. And tiring.
The most amazing part is what you see here. SHOES and SOCKS worn by the barefoot/flip-flop princess. I don't know what made her want to try these out (it didn't hurt that they were a purple/pink combination) but try them out she did. She even wore them to school one day last week. So I guess it was a success.

Here's Mae, without shoes!? Maybe we were in some parallel universe?

I vote for the parallel universe. That last picture of Lucy makes her look amazingly grown up for some reason!

I agree with Thalia. I was thinking how old Lucy looked in this post. Maybe it's because we haven't seen you guys in almost a year :( I love the hurdles, keep jumping.

The parallel universe continues with Mae's braids! Yes, Lucy is looking quite old these days. Not sure why.
Jil-when can we come visit???
