Well. I certainly didn't think anyone would get it already. Lisa must have scoured the internet for every photo of every stadium in the world. She was the only one who got it right. A pound of the lovely lavender will be winging it's way across the Atlantic to her this week.
We're running the 10K at Panathinaiko Stadium in Athens the first weekend in November. We will be in Athens for less than 24 hours. How dumb are we? We were so focused on being home in time to put the kids to bed on Sunday night that we didn't even think about going on Friday afternoon and actually relaxing for a bit. We will probably exert more energy trying to make our early afternoon flight back to Germany than we will during the race. Poor planning. Actually there was no planning what-so-ever. We got excited and jumped in. We'll still have a blast and we're still SO excited. I've been to Greece before but Pam hasn't. Our hotel is right in the thick of things and the race course goes right by all the main attractions. Gives a whole new meaning to a quick trip.
I've been sewing again. We have the Wives' Club Bazaar this weekend. It's a pretty big deal over here. I'm making bags for the Ways and Means table (money that goes back into the club to help run it). The Army changed uniforms recently. So what to do with all those old Battle Dress Uniforms? Get creative!
Trust me. WAY cuter in person. They are lined with the T-shirts that they wore with these uniforms. I also made up large messenger bags and wine gift bags and little tissue holders. I'll share the pictures once I get more done. I need to get back to the sewing machine. The bazaar starts on Friday!
My load will greatly be relieved come November 1st. Soccer will be over and we've decided to put off the Tae Kwon Do until we get back to the States and the boys can join a proper class that isn't so late in the evening. That's FIVE, count 'em, FIVE days a week we'll get back the afternoons and evenings. Whew. Maybe I'll actually have time to pick up the needles again.
During breakfast I've started reading to the boys. The book we started this morning is Here Lies the Librarian. They both love it. This author, Richard Peck, is fantastic. Daniel read one of his other books in class and I got hooked on him.
