Update of the Shields' household.....

It has been awhile so I thought I would update on all the Shields.
Ethan is 1/2 way through 6th grade with a 4.0 and doing very well. He continues to run for the Saddleback Running club and has also started playing volleyball through the rec department. he is currently taking a break from soccer.
Rylyn has started preschool and loves it. She goes two days a week and looks forward to it. She continues with gymnastics on monday mornings with her Oma.
Jeff is still coaching double A hockey 18 and under and they are wrapping up their season with a few weeks left. he is also still plugging away at the commercial mortgage business.
I myself am enjoying my second year teaching high school and have also taken on two coaching positions. I coached girls volleyball in the fall and I will be coaching track in the spring. I just finished my 7th 1/2 marathon and I am looking forward to training for the MV triathlon with my team. I also finally started scrapbooking again. Guess I needed a little creative therapy.

Vegas dreams busted!

So I signed up to run the Vegas Rock n Roll 1/2 last June. It would have been my 6th for the year and I would have full filled my bucket list by running 6 this past year.
Last thursday, I badly sprained my ankle in a volleyball match. Since I only have 4 weeks till race day, I am not sure that running Vegas will be possible now! The doctor put me in a boot and assigned physical Therapy. I hope to swim next week and by the following week, start spin again. Maybe with some luck and a slight miracle I will be able to run in time!

Irvine Mud Run

The kids and I participated in the Irvine Lake Mud Run on Sunday. Ethan ran with me, we finished in 33 minutes. Ethan took 8th in his age category and I took 9th in mine. Rylyn ran the kids mud sprint with Daddy. Ethan and I had a blast. Rylyn on the other hand screamed the whole time. Apparently she doesn't take after her mommy, she doesn't like mud!
