Sorry the picture isn't very good. My camera is on it's LAST LEG any my new one is scheduled to arrive TODAY!!!
We also harvested a carrot from our winter garden. There are 2 more to pull up but I'm saving them for Noah and Eli to do when they get home.
We're going to plant more carrots, along with garden beans and onions. Should be a good garden year! Zeke is now potty trained and slightly more independent so hopefully I'll be able to work in the garden more this summer than previously!

Having the heart rate monitor was kind of neat. You can plug this watch up to the computer and view your pace and heart rate all along your path. My heart rate hit 187 (which is right at my MAX heart rate for my age) right at a point where I just felt I had to walk. I walked for about 10-12 feet taking several deep breaths and then picked up jogging again! I guess it's good that I automatically knew I needed to back off. God really designed our body as a marvelous creation!
I want to be running this path of 2.55 miles in a flat 27 minutes before I add more distance to it. With a goal of running in Casey's Cause on May 2nd and doing it in 30 minutes - not sure I'm going to make that!

Eli got 6th in shot put, 5th in long jump, 4th in the 400m, 3rd in the 100m, 2nd in the 200 m. The events were in that order, too! He said if he had one more event he was sure to get 1st!
We had to arrive at 4:30 and we were there until 8:45. One of the parents who volunteered to work concessions couldn't be there so I ended up helping with that. The boys were both supposed to compete in relays but they still had several more races to go and lots of kids had already left so I don't know if they even had enough kids to do them. We were all tired and tired of chasing Zeke around so we were ready to go home!
It was lots of fun and now that we know kind of how this going to work, we are looking forward to the next one!
