The Big Race

Well today was the "BIG DAY" for Meridian's 5K Fun Run. As you can see from the photo, I don't have my running gear on since it was back to work for me after the race. (That's my excuse for not running--and I'm sticking to it!) Anyway, I think all of the kids had a great time. The lower school kids ran laps in the parking lot (pictured behind us) while the upper school had a police escort for most of their run since all of the roads around the school are just too busy. No one got run over (which was the main worry I had helping with the run) and Kobe even managed to finish 3rd place with the lower school. Tehani opted to take is easy and didn't do the whole 5K but had fun running none the less. And the school has done well for the event and is almost up to $7,000 so far. This is definaltey my kind of 5K--one where I don't have to run!!

Thanks again to everyone who donated for the 5K--Kobe and Tehani both met their fundraising goal of $100 each (so we will think of you when they use the miniature golf passes they got for meeting their goals.) Which means they will be bugging me about this until I take them there. So if you're in the mood for miniature golf just let me know--I've got some kids you can borrow...

Very cute:) Apparently Tehani takes after us. And, this is the first time I've seen a picture of her missing both of her teeth.
