Reflecting on last week, it seemed last week was harder than the first week. I was still pretty motivated and excited since the whole challenge was still pretty new. It was difficult to take Pippin on a walk every single day, and there was one day when I almost missed it because I was pretty short on time, but I managed to squeeze in a short walk. I was able to have some fun times with the kids, we walked to a park that was a little further away than the one we usually go to, packed some snacks and everyone had a good time. Lily walked the whole way there, Chloe sat in the stroller holding onto Pippin's leash, and everyone played at the park. Pippin was a nuisance once we got there because he kept getting in the way, getting tangled up and whined all the time, but I am glad he was getting the exercise. We did really good every other day. It seemed like one day the kids were great, Pippin was doing great and we had a good time, and the next the kids would be fighting over who got to hold Pippin's leash and Lily would be in and out of the stroller and Chloe would be fussing the whole time. I think that going out every day was just too much for the kids because they would be tired from the day before. So at most I would like to get Pippin walked about every other day.
In other news, we harvested our first crop of green beans today!
