Getting a late start.. can't let myself go off track.

It was sad not being able to have the time to get in an early Sunday morning bike ride or run. We had Logan's soccer game bright and early at 8am.. No time to workout until after. 
I'm not very good at working out later on.. I like just getting up and going to run or bike to get it over with ASAP. No time to think or do anything else but go workout. Well, when I have to do other things like soccer during the time I usually would be doing my own workout.. that's when things go off track. I didn't want that to happen two days in a row.. 
It was a sweaty afternoon ride. A beautiful fall day in the 80's, so I have zero regrets about forcing myself out to bike 14 miles. 
In fact, the morning started out really great too. Logan got to play soccer as a sub for his old soccer team he use to play on for the last two years. They all tried out and made the select team. It requires more practice time 4x's a week and out of state travel. That just wasn't for us or Logan as he doesn't like to even go practice 2x's a week, so we didn't have him try out. 

It was nice that Logan was asked to sub for this game. He did really well, scored a goal and played excellent. It was fun to see the kids all playing soccer together again. Maybe next year.. we'll see if he's up for more soccer and practice to join the team again. For now.. he is enjoying a new team. 
We've been having such nice weather. It was so warm out last night and not windy, Steve and I had a bonfire in the back yard. We had to wait up to pick up Celina from her first Homecoming dance.
She just went with friends. I like how the girls just go without dates and go in groups. It's so nice that things have changed and they can still go to a dance with or with out any boys. 
They all felt a little like celebrities with all the picture taking.. and flashes going off. 
While the girls were all getting ready and have a pre-dance party at a friends house. We all went to dinner. Pizza at Green Mill. 

What's a dance photo with out Logan getting in it too. These girls grew up over night.. Where did the years go? 
Celina received a pretty flower wrist corsage from her Pepe and a silver bracelet from her Meme. 
There is always a lot of behind the scenes prep that goes into these dances. We had to get the nails done.. french pedicure and manicure. 


I just did a color change.. to try and cover up my ugly toe nails.. 
Dances are so much prep that it almost feels like you are wedding dress shopping. There is the stop at Pink.. and trying on all the cute fancy dresses at Macy's. Thankfully, we got really good deals on every thing. I think the whole package was around $150 for the night. She will be wearing this dress for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter!
