We have been a busy clan again, but I love reflecting upon my week with my Friday Fave Five. Lots to reflect upon this week.
I just went for a power walk workout outside, and it was a lovely night. The air was crisp, the moon was full, and I could smell a fire in someone’s fireplace in the air. I felt like I should come home and drink apple cider instead of water after such a beautiful fall night!
I have been helping out with The Inventor’s cross country team twice a week right after school. Some days I just want to go home and chill out afterschool. But I must admit, when I get there I really enjoy the team, they have over 70 7th-9th boys and girls on the team. So they can use all the help they can get. I can’t run with the team so I ride my bike with them on their runs. It has been fun, quite refreshing and dare I say these teens are really quite enjoyable!
I am so busy and not much of a fashionista, but I did buy a few new clothes this week, and I must admit I am enjoying not feeling so frumpy all the time!
We went with friends last weekend to ride bikes around the battlefield at Gettysburg. We got our bikes out, started out onto the battlefield, got to our first stop and it began to POUR down rain! Being the optimists that we are, we continued thinking it would not last. However, it continued to pour, we were soaked, and cold, and decided to send the men for the cars. So you are probably wondering how a wet bike ride made it into my top 5?! Because after we dried out a bit, we all made the best of our day, made some lasting memories and had fun despite the tough beginning. And I am thankful for friends who were troopers and willing to make the best of a rainy day!
And I am thankful for all those fall treats, like apple cider, candy corn, apples and pumpkin roll! All treats we enjoyed this week!
