Midweek Update Edition #7

Time sure flies, doesn't it?!
Yesterday was Esteban's 7th Birthday!! We had a small party in the morning (6 kids) and today was his first day in first grade!
He was so ready!! Most of the moms go with their kids on the first day, and the kids get their "Schultüte" (a German tradition) filled with some school supplies and a few treats.
He was so serious and confident in all he did, I was so proud of him. Some boys were just being silly, others were being sassy. He was just quiet and sitting straight up paying attention. I'm sure he was nervous, but it was nice to watch him on his first day! Tomorrow he gets to go for the whole day! He is so ready!
These are my new shoes! I finally gave in and bought them and I don't regret it! They are so much more comfortable than my last pair!
On the exercise front... The regular instructor got back from her vacation last week and
sent me a text saying that she'd be doing the beginners class again at 5:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays!
So Monday I got there, and since no one else showed up I got a personal training session! Then yesterday, same thing!! I love that! She showed me how to pay attention to my breathing, kept reminding me to tighten my abdominal muscles and was watching to see where I needed to improve some moves. I hope for some more of these private training sessions, they're great for me. I'm sure that now that school started more ladies will be finding time in their schedules for a workout, but until then, I'm alone!
Betty, feel free to join us! :)

  1. Casey. Happy Birthday to your little one! Congrats on the exercise too. I would love to be able to get myself moving. I love the shoes and am glad you found something comfortable. :)
