We ran the 5k in 36 minutes, which is not very fast. But we didn't walk at all (although I did stop to tie my shoe), so that was good. The boys- my two and Amy's son, Paden- were a big hit. There were lots of other mommies (and some daddies) with jog strollers, too.

Eric and I have also been cooking a lot. Yesterday we made homemade gnocchi, turkey meatballs, roasted acorn squash, and bok choy. Today Eric baked bread and I made a pot of lentil soup with kale, which Eric liked even though it was healthy. We haven't baked anything for dessert, so that's kind of a problem, but otherwise, our fridge is now full of delicious, homemade food.
This past week was also Rosh Hashanah, and we set out for synagogue on Thursday with the best of intentions. But then the road we usually take was closed, and I told Eric to pull over so that we could get directions- and he pulled over into a wooden stake. There was a huge popping sound and then I saw air gusting out of the back tire of our van. Fortunately my mom was able to come get the boys and me, and Eric changed the tire, but skipped services. Lucky for him, he'll get another chance this coming weekend for Yom Kippur!
