Boosterthon Fun Run

Well, we have survived our first ever Elementary School Fundraiser.  It was a "Fun Run" (now to me, those 2 words don't go very well together, but whatev)  Kyndall had to raise pledges by asking people to donate money for each lap she ran.  Grammie and Popo, Bits and Gram, and Jim and I all donated $1 per lap.  The super fun part of that was she got 3 prizes for having 3 pledges....and they made a huge deal in class about it and that made her feel super special.  The money goes towards putting a shade over the playground, which totally makes me happy.  In this Texas Heat, they need some shade.  Jim totally thought she would make it like 5 laps and poop out....not so!!  We all owe 28 dollars.  That's right folks....my girl is a runner.  She was PRECIOUS.  I was so glad I went, too.  She kept running over to me and giving me hugs and high fives.  It was completely worth it to drag my 9 month preggo booty up to the school and cheer her on.  I even did the last lap with her (walked).  Luckily, my mom came too, so Avery was distracted a little and I got to capture a few good photos:

Look at that beautiful smile!!!

I am so proud of her.  She seems to put her all in everything she does.  She only walked like 2 laps....the rest she ran.  That is how it seems school is going as well.  She may not do things perfectly, but she tries her hardest.

I wish I could run! Maybe at that age I was able to, but can't even remember! Very cool that she raised $28!!

You know you have 2 more days and then this blog address and title will have to change to include the memories of another Kelly girl :)
