Today we ran in a 5K that supports the school district I work in. You wouldn’t think it would be all that festive and fun to run a school district run, but you would be surprised. There are few runs that I can think of where I would know that many people. The whole time I’m running, I’m also greeting friends, former students and present ones too! I cried as I greeted some of my dearest, former, in-building colleagues. I hadn’t realized I missed them so! Today I spent the bulk of my run with Jude and a current student, while Bradley ran with our Gigi. We followed the event up with our traditional shopping adventure. It was a very good day!

Our nephew, Luke, turned 12 recently and asked for the best birthday gift- for our whole family to get together like we used to, before Mom and Dad moved to Idaho. Miracle against miracles, we did it and 100% of the Hansen clan got together. If was a fun day!

Every Wednesday our kids have an early release. The most recent one was spent exploring the park and seeing the wonder of the world we live in. They trampled through the valley, explored stumps, and even suspended leaves magically from their hands!
Have you ever been walking outdoors somewhere and seen a leaf just floating magically in the air? When we go to St. Edwards, we see them all over the place, so rich in spiders and falling leaves, and Bradley has taught the kids how to capture them and make them their own.

Almost every morning I get a text a little after 9:00, when Bradley has left the kids at school, of the kids. It’s our last ‘see ya later’ of the day before we all come together again after I get home. It’s really nice. This year, with the added commute and shift in my start and end times, I’m leaving the house at the same time, 7:30, but my return home time isn’t until around 5:00, compared to the 4:00 time over the last decade. Little things like my daily kid pic help to keep me connected and in the loop. I love this little Littlejohn tradition!
