So bummed...

I forgot my camera this morning.  Today is Saturday.  We had gotten up way too early to get Yana to school for her first ever cross country meet.  Well, invitational.  But, this will give her a feel for what is to come.  We drove w/ the kids (minus Irina and Nik since still at their grandparents)  & a friend came along to go to Yana's meet.  Of course, we were running a bit late.  Those lazy summer days have been firmly implanted in my kids and I'm working on getting them back into a school schedule.  You know, waking up before it's brunch time.  LOL.  Yana's friend had made a sign b/c we were out of posterboard at our house.  Said "let's go Yana."  Go Cleveland.  And of course RUN!  Perfect day for a run this morning as it was overcast.  Trust me, you don't want the hot Carolina sun burning down on you.  We watched Yana run by us and then waited.  The cross country meet is 5K.  We saw Yana struggling on the last lap which is totally, totally expected since this is her first ever meet.  I'm just estatic that she was committed, stuck with it, and finished it.  The kids & us were cheering her on & her team.  Still so bummed I did not have my camera.  Was really neat watching her run through the finish line, sprinting the last little bit.  Yana did well.  She still has lots of training to do before truly ready for the first official meet but coach said she definitely has the ability.  Very proud of her and can't wait for the next meet! 

We left the meet & Yana wanted to stay w/ her team & also encourage the boys' team.  We left and since energy was low, what better way to kick it up than w/ a dozen donuts from Dunkin Donuts.  I think it's been at least 2 years since we had Dunkin Donuts.  Now, I know why we never get them...they are too stinkin' good!  We enjoyed our impromptu stop & headed home.  Warren and Max went to take the trash off & then pick up Yana from school.  After that, we are doing a bit of work outside & inside the house today.   We'll be working on the blog some too so don't worry if it goes on & off today.  Yana is still working on getting her room back to her room since Kyle left for college.  Later this afternoon, Warren goes to pick up Irina and Nik.  So, no big plans this weekend.  We're still mulling over going hiking tomorrow or not.  Pretty quiet weekend & very happy about that as we have so, so much going on & places to go in September and October.  And, two birthdays during that time.  Much more to come the next few days.  For now, we're just going to relax and enjoy our weekend.  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend as well.
