Now that cool morning weather has arrived, the older kids (and I too) have started running about a mile 3 mornings a week. On Fridays, we typically do a time trial of a shorter distance (about 1/4 mile) where we try to beat our personal record. Yesterday morning all 3 of us broke our records!

As a reward, we took off school for the day (a benefit of schooling year-round) and decided to go see the UT Marching Band. They were stopping at Miller Park on their way to Tuscaloosa for today’s game. The weather was perfect.

It was a nice change of pace for us, and Doodle loved watching the mascot.
