#RunLikeKeith June Update (and fundraiser!)

I haven’t written much about my half marathon training recently, so it’s about time I do! Plus, I have some exciting news… First, the training update. I had to take almost two weeks off due to travel and an epic stomach bug. It’s been really hard to get back in the swing of things both…

Post-Potosi Post

I’m catching up on Saturday Night Live episodes and finally sitting down to write this blog post summarizing our Bolivia trip. How first-world do I sound?! It has taken me the last week to even begin to process everything we saw and accomplished. A huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to think…

Two Days Left

It’s hard for me to believe that we only have today and tomorrow in Potosi before our three day journey home. And Caleb turned six months today. I honestly don’t even know where to begin writing and that is probably why I haven’t posted recently. We only just reached the point in the last few…

Las Cosas Curiousos

When I lived in England in 2007, my mom gave me a Curious George journal to keep track of all the funny little things I noticed. In keeping with the tradition, I will be writing a few “curious things” posts because it’s those little things we’ll forget! Milk and yogurt come in bags, juice comes…

Safe & Sound

Wow, the last three days are a blur. Our flights to Miami, La Paz, & Santa Cruz went rather well except for the fact that Keith and I did not sleep on the overnight flight. Caleb slept all night (I promise a post on how we accomplished that!). When we finally arrived in Santa Cruz…
