We started our official half marathon training today. A good 4.5 mile run. We really pushed ourselves tonight and went about a mile farther than usual. It felt good to reach 1/3 of our overall goal! I guess I forgot to mention that we are running a half marathon (13 miles) in December!

School is now back in session and I am already so worn out it is unbelievable. You forget how chaotic the first few days of school are. There are so many emotions that by the end of the week everyone is drained. Thank goodness we already have a holiday on Monday. I am ready for a break! I sure did get spoiled to sleeping in during the summer, not watching the clock every five minutes to make sure I wasn't missing anything, and I really enjoyed staying up late at night watching so many movies. It has been difficult to get back into that old routine and roll out of bed so early in the morning. I can't remember the last time that I woke up when it was still dark outside. Anyway, it has been a pretty good first few days of school.

Sunday was a fun filled day at the Jordan house as we all celebrated Keelie's 1st Birthday. There were lots of toys to be opened, and big sister Katy helped out with those. Then we sang Happy Birthday and let Keelie play in her cake. After that, we were off to the pool for some more fun. It is always so much fun when everyone in the family gets together!

Although this was Brynn's second haircut I took it a little harder than I did the first time around. This time we cut off probably 4 inches. The ends were so thin that it was very difficult to even do anything to her hair. About all that could be done was pig tails, but that usually was a battle every time I tried to get them in. I admit, I cried a little because it was so hard to see that much hair cut off, especially since it took so long to grow it out. Although the pig tail days were adorable, Brynn looks very precious with her new little bob haircut! We think that this new haircut will help thicken up her hair and actually grow out better this time. Her daddy loves the cut and really thinks that it will be much easier to deal with in the mornings when he is trying to get her to the babysitters house!
