Gershwin wrote a song that was sung in the opera, "Porgy and Bess". The words are:
"Summertime and the Livin' is Easy"
I don't know about you but Summertime isn't always easy livin'. Between gardening, mowing lawns, teaching summer school, planning a wedding, sewing 7 dresses, training for a half marathon and the myriad of activities that accompany summer, I hardly have time to blog! :) But I love it!
Here are a few activities that took place over the weekend.
Some of the grandkids were in the Lehi Days Parade on Friday and Saturday. Since this picture was taken with my phone, it's hard to see the details, but you get the idea.
Ad is playing T Ball this year...
...and so is the Corbanator.
A sprinkler under Grandma's trampoline makes for a fun activity for Em, Cy and Kels...
...especially when the temperature is over 90.
Here are my new shoes. They're called Altra - Zero Drop. Notice how much lower the heel is compared to most brands of running shoes. The heel and toe are the same distance off the ground which means less heel strike and allows the foot to land soft and natural, similar to barefoot.
The toe is round to allow more room. If you remember the shape of my foot, you know I need more room in the toe. I'm supposed to alternate between this shoe and my old shoe for the first few weeks so my foot and body will get used to the difference. I went for a 3 mile run yesterday and shaved 2 minutes off last week's time. Was it the shoe or was it all in my head? Not sure but I'll take it!
If you're familiar with this shoe, let me know your thoughts. Oh yeah, I also signed up for a running class.
Summer just keeps getting better!
