Happy Wednesday everyone!
I took another unexpected mini blogging break, I felt like I was lacking things to talk about. I feel like we have so much going on but not enough to talk about consistently. Hopefully, I can pull it all together and have new content flowing soon!
*Spring break for Kyle starts on Friday and we are so excited. Even though I'm heading to NC for a few days we will still have 7 days to do stuff together as a family. I am sure it will include lots of trips to Kansas City and maybe a few other surrounding cities for fun day trips. I love that CGSC gives students spring break off, it's definitely a nice treat.
*The last few weeks I have been adding new recipes to our rotation. I have to share one that is now a favorite. Cheesy Enchilada Rice Skillet. It is absolutely delicious! I used brown rice and omitted the green enchilada sauce and used 1 cup of red. To be honest you don't even need the cheese because it's good without it. It's even better the next day.
*My trip to NC is coming up quickly! However, it's going to be so odd traveling solo. I haven't done that since last May when I went to Disneyland with my sister. We knew that it would be so much easier if I made this trip by myself. I can look at as many houses as I need to without having a schedule. Not to jinx anything but the house we really want is still available so it just needs to last another week haha! I will miss Kyle and E though.
*I wrote a post last month about not knowing what I wanted to do professionally. Well, after some soul searching and conversations with a few people I've figured it out. I am going to get certified with USA Track and Field as a coach. I would like to focus on working with kids and help them achieve their running goals. Since my degrees are in Psychology and Child Development this would be the perfect way to marry the two. I am also talking to the owner of Stroller Strong Moms Fayetteville about helping out with their track portion of class. I would love to be able to motivate and inspire people to run! This does not have to be something that I get paid to do but something that I'm passionate about doing and volunteering my time to do.
*I shared this story recently on FB but I wanted to share it here. Last month, Kyle noticed that his classmate sitting next to him was choking. Without thinking twice or drawing attention to the situation he got up and administered the heimlich maneuver. He doesn't think what he did was a big deal but he saved the life of his classmate. Last Friday, he was recognized by the leadership of CGSC for his actions. He received a coin and personal letter from the Deputy Commander. I am so proud of him for acting so quickly.
Have a great Wednesday!!!
