Muddy Buddy???

I had never heard of Muddy Buddy until just recently. For those of you that don't know, it's an event sponsored by REI. You pair up with someone about your size, one starts riding a mountain bike, while the other runs. When you get to an obstacle course, you complete it and then switch (If you were on the bike, you'll now run and vice versa). It's a 6 mile course and at the end, the buddies have to make their way through a mud pit. I have to admit, the mud put looked tres fun! :) Anyway, this is how we spent our Sunday morning. Karen is a friend that participated with Chris. In the middle is a picture of the mud pit BEFORE the race started.

Festival of Flowers

This past Sunday, Chris participated in his second triathalon. He finished in about the same amount of time and did well. It was HOT! He's joined the Peachtree Tri Club and will continue to train. His next event will be in Chattanooga next month.

Whew! What a month!

May went by so fast, but while it was happening it seemed that it would be forever before school was out. We started out the month with a Cinco de Mayo party (the first picture) and ended the month with a birthday bash (well, sort of) for Chris! His birthday was on Memorial Day this year, which was perfect because he LOVES patriotic holidays! Cinco De MayoEveryone hanging out for Memorial Day/Chris's birthdayChris's birthday cake from Cold StoneEveryone eating cake! :)

May kept us busy. I had my grad school class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, ALL month! The end of the school year is always crazy, hectic busy. To add to the craziness I had to move my classroom (I haven't moved in about 4 years) AND I was in charge of all the NEW 5th grade "celebration" activities. We were told we had to change what we've always done, so it was definitely a learning experience... talk about STRESS!

I enjoyed my week off last week, as next week I begin classes full time Monday-Thursday for two weeks. (Then the last two weeks, I have class just at night Monday-Thursday). Let's just say I am going to enjoy my Fridays and am looking forward to July!
