Well I did end up going on a wonderful bike ride the other morning. I’m not sure of the length though, I need to see if there’s some APP for that – I’m sure there is, but it was wonderful and mostly “up hill”. We don’t have a lot of flat around our house, nothing…

So it’s been weeks since I last posted and I have no real excuse why – lol.  I really didn’t like the “feel” of that blog style I was trying so I rarely visited. It was a new, meta blog idea that seemed awesome at the time but really it didn’t work for me so…

Well it’s been both a rushed and a not rushed summer so far and there isn’t much to post about today. We’ve been busy, what with dance camp and competitions going on. But so far we’ve not been running around crazy. And that’s a good thing. After this weekends competition we will have a lull…

So Jaia and I traveled to our first official out of state feis this past weekend. (Not counting the Oireachtas she participated in last year). Since she’s a novice now I want her to experience a few more feisianna  so she can get both experience and hopefully medals. We carpooled with some friends this time…
