My money's on Greg. Just saying.
Anyway, let's hope we get all that turned in this week and then next week I'll have some more time on my hands. Here's what we've been up to in August.
When Greg was in Korea, he and some of his friends would have Sunday dinner together. They'd all pitch in and make something and I always thought it was super cute. We decided to continue the tradition in Kansas, and we finally held our first one.
We signed Riley up for gymnastics! I believe the look on her face in this picture is essentially how I feel every class. The place is awesome and the instructors are great, but there's only so much a toddler will do for a few minutes before losing interest. We try our best to stick with the curriculum, and then the rest is me chasing Riley/trying to keep her from getting kicked in the head by the older kids/trying to retrieve her from the foam pit. I really think the class should come with a waiver form that documents the parent's acknowledgement that this class will actually serve as a 45-minute total body workout for themselves. No joke, I wake up sore the next day from lifting this 24 pound nugget up and down about three thousand times.
They had a wall in the exhibit where they encouraged guests to leave a sticker where they or their family member had served. We put some for our dads, grandfathers, and uncles, and I got a bit emotional seeing Greg put stickers on Afghanistan and Iraq because that was such a different and very difficult part of his life. I sometimes wish we had been together during it, so I could have supported him, and then I am almost grateful because I can't imagine how hard it would have been having him gone, and in harm's way, so often. Regardless, I'm so grateful he made it through all of those years safely and that he was with us to put those stickers on the map.
