This week didn't start out the way I intended, but it seems to be shaping up pretty well. I did get a workout on Wednesday (yesterday). Always feels good!! Also, over the weekend I did a ton of walking! On Saturday, I had the afternoon to myself to go check out the city and all the shops that aren't "stroller friendly." So, I walked for about 4 hours. It was raining for some of it, and I was trying to get in as much as possible--so the walking was also at a pretty good pace. Then Sunday, my family and I visited the castle here in Edinburgh. It was amazing! (I will be posting a slide show soon on my family blog, if you want to check it out!) So, we walked a lot that day too. Then on Monday, the kids and I made our first walk together up to the Royal Mile and Shane's school. It was the first time we've done it alone. It's a far walk, especially pushing a stroller full of kids. When we go with Shane, all three kids get to ride the whole time. He's obviously much stronger than I am, and it lets us go a little faster if they're all riding. Plus, it's busy and there are lots of people, so it's much safer that way. However, because it's far away, there is no way that I could push all three of them that far! So, the 2 older ones were taking turns walking (which is good for them anyway). It definitely made our trip take longer, but it was okay. We had planned for it. We went up there to meet Shane Ph.D. supervisor. We have heard so much about Dr. Bond, that it was nice to finally meet her! And then, of course, we had the walk back.... So, I skipped a workout at home due to time and well, I sorta got a workout walking, I felt. So, here's to finishing up the week!! (We have less than 3 weeks left here in Scotland! That's cray!!!!!)

Those strollers are a HUGE workout. We sold our double stroller. With Noah on the front there was no way I was steering that thing!

I can't believe you have less than 3 weeks left. That's crazy! It seems like you all just got there. Of course... I'm not complaining, I can't wait for you all to come home! And now that J & C are going to be neighbors with us, maybe will see you all a little more often... I'm keeping my fingers crossed anyway! Love to you all!
