Life Love Larson: Lately


Friday, April 19, 2013


Could it be?  Is that really the sun or are my eyes deceiving me?  Yes!  It’s only 30 degrees, but the sun is shining!  Another week seems to have flashed before my eyes and things are busy around here.

Little Miss started soccer.  She has been sitting on the sidelines watching Drew play for almost 3 years, and it’s finally her turn!  She loved it!  I was an athlete, so I am secretly hoping that sports are her thing :).  I would never push it on her, and at this point, dance and gymnastics seem to be her thing, but hey, she’s happy in some cletes and a jersey, so I’m happy!!


You all know I love to stroll around the hardware store.  This weather has made it difficult to even think of spring, but we’re gearing up for it.  A few of my favorite things: kiddos, spray paint, and items for the yard!


Speaking of Home Depot, how great is this stone garden stool??  Only $60!


Apparently we had one nice day in the last few weeks…we are so looking forward to summer!


I finished my first 5k in 32 minutes!  I started out thinking I would walk/run, but ended up running the whole thing.  I realize this is no huge feat, but a big deal for me, someone who isn’t a “runner”.  I finished 3rd in my age group, and 48 overall out of 220.  There are certainly no 10k’s, half marathons, or marathons in my future, but I’m glad I completed this! 


I’m working on sprucing up our back patio.  This is definitely going to be on a budget, and is going to take a little effort, but anything is better than how it looks now!  More to come on this in a full post.


If you haven’t heard about this, you must sign up!  My brother in law introduced me to it and my kids absolutely love it!  It’s Bedtime Math.  It’s free.  Once you sign up, you will get an email with a real-world, current event math story and problem every day.  They have three levels:  wee ones (my kids), little kids, and older kids.  What a great way to introduce/supplement math with your kids on a daily basis.

A huge thank you to two blogs for featuring my work this week!

I’m looking forward to a weekend of hanging out, house/yard projects, watching soccer, and hopefully enjoying more sunshine (I’m not holding my breath on that one)!  Happy weekend, friends!
