Back to School 2018

This year Jackson started 1st grade and French. He has been SO excited to be back at school and to see his friends. Most of our summers we dedicate to family, so he was excited to hang out with his buddies.

He met his teachers(he has one french teacher for half the day that only speaks french, then an English teacher for the other half of the day). He likes both of them and talks about how cool and funny they are. Today they said his teachers let his class have a ‘special recess’ meaning they got an extra one haha. I love this age and how easy to please they are.

The first week of school he hasn’t complained, I hope he continues to be optimistic and enjoy learning.

Lily (and Claire) started “Mommy School” this week as well. 2x a week I teach them from a curriculum packet I bought online. They last about 1.5 and so far really enjoy learning together. I love having 2 days of structured mornings with the girls. They love the attention and Lily loves showing her work to Josh and J when they get home. She so wishes she could be at school, but I like to soak up every year I get with them at home. img_4314img_4316img_4309img_7444-2img_7436-2img_7433-2


J also started his fall soccer season. I love watching him play, he gets so competitive and really enjoys running(like I did/do). This season he has his cousin Cal and a lot of his buddies from school on the team. He’s got the cutest cheering section!


About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
