This season’s Girls on the Run shirts have arrived! Our color this year is PURPLE. The Husband is thrilled. Hah. He requests orange for next year.
This week’s lessons focused on gossiping and bullying, two concepts that are relatively (thankfully) new to elementary schoolers but definitely on everyone’s mind. One of the things we discussed is how gossiping and bullying hurts both the person being attacked as well as the person doing the behavior. We also talked about how bullying can be physical, social, and/or emotional. These lessons always go over really well, and everyone seemed to learn a lot and have fun. The formula for a perfect GOTR lesson!
Next week: we’re running the official Practice 5K. We make it into a big party with a finish line, water station, and prizes for everyone.
The real race is in a month!
Today was very busy – bouncing from one thing to the next. So there were many peanut butter sandwiches and bowls of cereal consumed. Easy and fast. Dinner was fast, too, but very, very delicious.
Keeping frozen brown rice in the fridge makes cooking healthy dinners during the week SO MUCH EASIER. I’m going to cook and freeze another batch right now, actually!
In the mix:
And Soy Creamy Cherry Chocolate Chip for dessert. Mmmm.
