Fun Runnin ...

The Boosterthon Fun Run for Rachel's school was today.  They got pledges ahead of time (ie. $1 per lap) and then today they ran.  It was a fun run!  Music blastin and kids, teachers, and parents dancing!  I was impressed with how serious Rachel was ... the girl booked it!  Now she didn't have many pledges because I told her if she wanted people to give her money for it, she'd have to ask people.  So, she didn't ask very many people :-)  The one night she got a few pledges, she was excited about the prize she could get the next day.

 It was hard to catch her for a picture!  For the first several laps, she wouldn't slow down to pose for me!
There!  I at least got her face in this one!

I have to confess, I was a little emotional at the fun run today.  I know, it seems strange.  But I suddenly thought about how blessed I am to be able to go to Rachel's school events.  If I were working, I would have missed this.  On the last lap, the students were encouraged to bring their parent(s) along.  Rachel wouldn't have had anyone there.  So, thank you God and thank you David for making this work.  I am so grateful.

If you are interested in helping Fort Mill Elementary, you can still donate for the Boosterthon Fun Run.  Just let us know!

For those of you who have been keeping up, this is the famous "curly haired" girl!

They slowed down a little for the video :-)

And in Alex news ... check out HAM HEAD!  If I weren't home with him all day, I might miss moments like today when he was wandering the yard in search of the doggie barking ... patting his leg, say "who, who".  I am so blessed. 


  1. yes, lady you are blessed!

    and I'm blessed that you are my friend...:)

  2. I loved the part about how blessed you are to be able to stay home with your children and how you were able to be at Rachel's school with her because of it. That is wonderful! I thank God and David, too, and I applaud you, as well, for making it work. You will not regret it. I don't regret staying home with my children, either. Sue
