Fat Bikes and Big Training

on February 6, 2019

Happy Hump Day, Everyone! Already through half the week! You’ve got this!

We have been having a jolly good time over here enjoying Winter….starting to get a little antsy to see some green, but the amount of snow says that will be a while!

Things have been busy, as is normally the case, but there has been plenty of fun had as well.

Homeschooling is going great. I love that we do a lot of it in bed with pajamas on. All the stuffies think it is great too!

We all make sure to enjoy the views ๐Ÿ˜‰

Made sure to get some home school P.E. in last week and hit the mountain for a bit.

Science is going well….we even transplanted it to dirt and it is living its best plant life!

Makes it all worth it (rosy cheeks courtesy of playing in the snow).

On Saturday, Ken had a fat bike race. Ken headed up around 6:20 am and I rode the trainer for 2 hours before Brooke and I made our way up North. We hiked out on the course a bit and enjoyed the waiting game! It was a well worth it and the two kids had a blast playing in the snow.

The conditions were good (for snow biking) but still heavy and hard.

He finished second overall in around 4 hours and 28 minutes for 45+miles. Wowza!

It may be the most wrecked I have ever seen him after a race too. It was clearly very hard!

Luckily, the race was close, so we came home, sat in the hot tub, he took a nap(ish), I worked a bit and then we got dressed and headed back up for the Awards at 6.

Someone made sure to look extra nice ๐Ÿ˜‰

They played Rock Paper Scissors to see who got to pick prizes first! Ken beat her and Brooke was more impressed with that than his bike performance! ha!

Camp chair for the win!

Sunday we went to church and hung around the house for the rest of the day. I rode the trainer for another 2 hours and we cleaned out a file cabinet. It was riveting!

This week it is back to the normals. Brooke practiced some photography work.

Great group shot.

And then she helped with laundry.

I am taking a cycling class in town on Tues and Thurs mornings for the month of February (mainly because my friend Amy is teaching it). Early wake ups for the 7:15 class, but it works for Ken to drop Brooke off to me and then we swim!

I was right with Jasper when he was begging to go to bed at 8:45.

Current obsessions whilst trying to keep my body in one piece…thanks, Costco.

And on a random note, our vine is out of control.
