Still, six miles was tough on me. We kept a good pace for the first half the walk, but then I slowed down considerably for the second half. Once in awhile I would step a bit wrong and feel pain shoot from the sciatic nerve in my back down my leg. I stretched a few times but mostly just kept walking. It's now that I'm home that I can hardly walk, need to rest this afternoon :) Still, I feel like I kicked butt. On the way home Mike said "You're tougher than I thought."
This past Thursday and Friday I took Nathan down to my mom's because my sister and niece were in town for some conference. Nathan was really great with the baby, very sweet and loving and playful. It was good to see. Elizabeth is a really good baby too, always happy and peaceful. It was nice hanging out with my mom and my sister and the kids.
Saturday we took Nathan to a birthday party at a big indoor moonbounce place. Most of the boys there were older than him, ranging from 3 to 9, so he was intimidated at first. But Mike went in some of the moonbounces with Nathan and soon he was having a ball. It was great fun but crazy watching all these boys and their energy. He crashed hard and slept the rest of the afternoon.
