My half marathon is this coming Sunday! You'll have to forgive me for at least one or two running related posts this week. After that I have some other posts brewing on everything from Unconditional Parenting from a Christian faith perspective to a look at our latest attempts to create greater rhythm in our home (gotta figure what those will be before I can write about it though). Plus, there's a *that* mom's bookshelf post coming soon!
In the meantime, here are some snapshots of vacation to share with you all. We headed to the Outerbanks for a week. It was exhausting and fabulous all at the same time. I loved getting to co-parent with my husband 24/7. It felt so good to work as a team and connect as a family. It was great to see other family we don't see very often - my dad, stepmom, step-sister and her husband. Plus getting to watch my kids play with my nephew all week was such a blast (although exhausting in its own right because of course they didn't always get along).

And now it's back to reality... or really at the moment race preparation and nerves!
