Turns out it has been a moth since I last posted. This keeps happening. Life is so busy!!!
As usual, this is a photo drop with comments....... Keep going
I got my Zumba Toning license with the delightful ZES, Renee Picket. It was a great day, I got to car pool with one of my favorite Zumba instructors on the way too. So now I have my Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumba Kids and Zumba Toning licenses. I can't wait to get to get back to the UK and put all of this awesome training and experience into practice. And look at her hair..... Love it! (and the abs too......)
Another Zumba event! A master class with the wonderful Loretta Bates. She is the first person who ever trained me to become a licensed Zumba instructor. One of my friend running the Master class contacted me and asked if I would like a table at the event. After umming- and ahhhing (Why?) I decided to go for it. I practiced the lay out of my stall and everything before hand. In the end I was able to set up on the day on under 30 minutes. For a table at a Zumba event, I did quite well. I covered my costs, and that was the main thing for this event. There was even some spare profit for Mexican afterwards!
It was so awesome to dance with the incomparable Loretta Bates. This girl so rocks! We were able to talk briefly about my plans for moving back to the UK. She was able to tell me that she has trained some Zumba instructors in Brighton and around the South Coast. She will also be there the weekend we (hopefully) fly back, at the ZIN Academy in London. Gutted we are flying then as i shall have to miss it. Oh well, there is always next year!
The same weekend as my Zumba fun, there was a NASCAR race on at Atlanta Motor Speedway. We decided, very last minute (Thursday night) to get some tickets. We checked out the weather, and purchased those bad boys
So Atlanta Motor Speedway is awesome! it is a mile and a half track. We had fairly good seats, on the front straight near the pit entrance. It was a good view. The race was awesome, the kids were great, the weather stunning and all in an excellent time.
Except the journey home. Took over an hour to get out of the car park, then traffic was so bad around Atlanta, we decided to go cross country. What should have been a three hour journey took almost 5. Put a bit of a dampener on the day. But then we snuck up on some NASCAR haulers on the interstate. We saw the 3 (Austin Dillon), the 5 (Kasey Kahne), the 27 (Paul Menard) the 10 (Danica Patrick) and the 31 of Ryan Newman.
And only Isaac was awake in the back to see them.....
Paul was away the following week, cold weather testing in Colorado. Jealous doesn't even begin to explain how I felt. But the boys and I got on with it. Below you have a rare sight of Oliver being kind to Isaac and tying his shoe (that is an exaggeration, he is kind, most of the time!)
The pair of them took it upon themselves to play school during that week. Below they are doing P.E, and doing crunches. Love them.....
Paul had a great time in the snow in Colorado. He was staying at a place called Keystone. This happened to be one of the places I had investigated for us to possibly go skiing. As I say, I was jealous. But its ok.....
Isaac had a trip to the dentist on Monday. His top front adult tooth has been coming in in front of the wobbly baby tooth. The dentist took some X-rays, and decided to pull both teeth. Getting him to be still to have the injections put in his gum took some effort, but we got there. He needed both pulled, as the one that is not through yet is VERY far over to the other side, and he may end up with a nice big gap between his teeth, and possibly braces..... We will see!
Thats it for now. We have a lady from the relocation company coming on thursday, so expect an update of sorts as to our returning to England plans in the next few days.....
