Kids' Marathon

Andrew and Daniel participated in a Kids' Marathon on Saturday.  I went with them, and we ran/walked for 1.2 miles.  I thought Daniel wanted to do it and I knew Andrew wanted to do it, so I signed them up.  Daniel later informed me that he absolutely did NOT want to do it.  He has become way too interested in video games and I want him to get out in the fresh air more often, so I told him that we were going to do it and I promised him I would be there the whole time.  Once he got there and saw all of the other kids from his school who were running, too, he was a little more excited about it.  Andrew did great, and got pretty far ahead of us.  Daniel and I held hands most of the time and I just kept encouraging him.  He talked and talked to me the whole time, and it was wonderful.  We did it!  Great job, boys!

Emily's Birthday

Emily turned 11 this week!  She was so excited!  We had cake and presents at home on Thursday, and she had a small party on Friday.  She wanted to do dinner and a movie with her friends, but there were no movies that she wanted to see so we did dinner and manicures instead.  I think everyone had a great time.  I know Emily sure did!
