My Babies are Going Running!!

Hi – This is a bit off the norm – but hey with me sometimes everything is a bit off the norm.

My children are both running at Ivy Creek Fund Run to raise money for there school and the Technology Department.  Both Abigail and Owen Love to Run!  They think this is the most exciting event!  They both have a goal of $300.  If they reach it they get Kid sized Kid loved prizes that make us go HMM; but happy they are happy – Like a Yard of Gum, and a Limo Ride to Ice Cream with the Principle!  Okay that does sound like fun! I was hoping you might consider taking a look at their fundraiser pages and decide if you can help support them.  It is a one time donation – not a donation by lap (Too many people say sure $5 a lap, then the kids run 40 laps) much easier this way:).

Here is an example of the e-mails the kids sent out.

Hi its Me Abigail/Owen!  I am running in the Ivy Creek Fun Run On October 18, 2013, to raise money for my school!  Would you please support me with a one time donation? My goal is to raise $300.00.

Also, If you would like to come see me run please give my parents a call. I would love to have you cheer me on!  I am helping raise much-needed funds to help our school with technology equipment to help better our education.

Please consider donating to this important cause. I am going to have a blast running!! Nothing more fun, and it’s even during school! You can use the link at the bottom of this post to visit my site where you can donate to my school fundraiser.

As always I really hope you have a super day!!

Abigail & Owen

My Thoughts on Who is Mom?

Mom – Friend, enemy, place to blow your nose, place to hold your tears, your fears, your safe haven. Someone to call 24/7 even by screaming your name down the hall. Someone who comes to every game, event, play, fair, reading bowl, track meet, swim meet. Someone to sing you to sleep, rock you to sleep, feed you at 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9am and smile as you wake the next morning. Mom changes diapers that have nothing but toxic substances in them and stuck on you. She ties your shoes, buttons your pants, your shirt, braids your hair, straightens your hair, cuts your hair, dyes your hair. Eats ice cream with you when its been a bad day, places the magic boo boo kisses on knees, elbows, shoulders, foreheads, noses, and has fun band aids. Mom makes the pest tea party guest, breakfast maker, lunch maker, dinners too. Mom will wear the most outrageous outfit if you ask her to, go to loud concerts, stand in line four hours to get tickets to a concert, movie,theme park. She will go with you when you have to see the doctor hold your hand when you have to get a shot, an xray a brace, have surgery. She’s the last one you see at night smiling saying I love you, the first in the morning with the same words. She smells like a mixture of powder and a flower you just cannot make out. Mom will make any meal even if she has to go back out to the store if her baby “needs it” she stays up way late for last minute notices on I need Cookies, brownies, rice crispy treats, or any other 22-26 person item for the next day. Mom always says yes to popcorn at the movie and no to all the extras at the grocery store. She always gets teary when she talks about your birth, you growing up, first day of school, last day of school, moving out, falling in love. Mom is the first person you call when you passed the test, met “The” guy, got in a wreck, got lost, got scared, needed a ride. Mom listens always, mom gives always Mom Loves Always. Mom is a Friend, sometimes it feels like the enemy but really just a bundle of love passing it on kiss by kiss and hug by hug.
