The summer has sped past for my crew, filled with lots of fun, family adventures. We took a multi-family camping trip near Mammoth. We had such a blast hiking, playing in the stream, and just hanging out with friends. My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary by heading to Kauai (without the kids.) We had such a wonderful time, which included a helicopter ride (doors off -- highly recommend it) and some stand up paddle boarding. We visited our local pool and library often, as well as throwing in some park and beach time. After completing the L.A. Marathon this year, I decided to continue to focus on my running, but maybe not quite at that distance. I'll be running my next race Labor Day weekend. Saturday I will run a 10K and Sunday a half marathon in and around Disneyland. Mrs. Mascari and I are partners in crime on this one. It has been such a fun adventure.
My two kids have been helping me get the classroom ready over the past few weeks. They love to "help" get things set up and organized. My "baby" will start Kindergarten and my oldest will be entering 4th grade. I cannot believe how fast time is moving. I'm looking forward to getting to know your kids too. We have such a rich curriculum in third grade and I cannot wait to dive into it with them. Here's to a wonderful third grade experience!
