Map Run

We have been studying maps in social studies. This gorgeous weather was perfect for a little map practice! We studied the park maps, and picked which trail we wanted to take and where we wanted to go.


The kids are also walking and running three miles with me every other day.

It’s not far, and in my recovery I am not able to go every day yet, and we are not fast.

But it is something, and we are all trying.

The older kids are learning about pacing.  They run super fast as soon as the van opens, but almost can’t get back to the van when we head back.  The little ones stay with me, and pace pretty well.  They are getting stronger, and today Anber ran the whole three miles!  She was so proud of herself!


Barrett trotted in second after not giving up or throwing any baby fits!

Kirk came in third, making circles.

Alex and Mary were neck and neck until the very last second!


They love stretching after, and usually get the giggles.


It was a great lunchtime break for some homeschool PE!


About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
