Random Five on Friday August 26th

1. Last weekend, my friend Meg (Adventures with Jude) mentioned running a virtual race to celebrate the National Park Service's 100th birthday. While I couldn't commit to paying for a race this month (no matter how cute the medal was), I told her that I'd run alongside her. "Alongside" being loosely defined as running at the same time, even though we were in different states and going different paces.

2. What better way to celebrate the National Park Service's birthday than to go camping? Brennan's Boy Scout troop has a family campout this weekend, and we'll happily be pitching our tents in Rocky Mountain National Park. Hopefully, Lauren can earn another Junior Ranger badge while we there, too.

3. Fall is going to be here before we know it. There was snow on Pike's Peak this week:

4. Addison seems to be doing well at Oklahoma Christian. We've heard from her a few times, and I managed to spot her in a few pictures that were taken at an Honors event earlier this week.

5. Today is our thirteenth day of school. I'm thankful we snuck in a few academic days this summer so that we've already gotten this many days that count. I struggle with the fact that Lauren has to do more days of schoolwork (according to CO homeschooling laws) than her friends who attend a public school.
