Last Tuesday, I drove to Topeka to go to Cordie's Back to School night. I missed it last year so it was really interesting to hear about the things they do in 8th grade these days. They have the kids split into pods basically and they have a group of teachers teach in each pod (Math, Science, Language Arts). They also seem to focus a lot on emotional growth which I thought was really cool. So much different from when I was in junior high.
After the presentation, she gave her dad and I a little tour of her classes and I am again amazed at how grown up she is getting. 13 seems so young and so old all at the same time. I surprised her with a new phone (she finally got a smart phone) and then she and I went out for some Froyo. It was nice to have a little one on one time with her. I've got another trip to T-town on Thursday for Paige and Elsa's Back to School night.
This cold is still kicking my butt. I have been alternating between Dayquil and Nyquil to try and dry up my head so I've kind of felt like I've been in a fog. Exercise has been nonexistent because I just haven't had the energy. So, not only do I feel like crap because of this cold, I feel like crap because I'm not getting my workouts in. It has been a great week.

This week, I'm going to try and get some running in. I'm not going to hit my 60insixty goal, so I'm just going to have to set myself a new goal. You only fail if you don't try, right?
