Transitions are hard for me. I thrive in routine and predictability. As the school year ends, I know I have many things to be thankful for and many things to look forward to but I’m also struggling. I’m struggling to get everything done, meet everyone’s demands, plan the kids’ summer activities, say goodbye to my running crew, and keep my head on my shoulders through it all. Yesterday we had a quick one mile run with the running crew. Today, Mr. B and I were planning on running before and after school so we could get another run with Ms. A before she leaves us. My babysitter for the afternoon fell through though and I literally cried over the missed opportunity. I’ll miss our after school running crew so much. Our morning run was great though so I’m glad I was able to make it to that one. We ran our favorite 4.5 mile route out into the country and treasured every minute of our last morning run together until August. Transitions are hard.
