In Training

Here she comes!

There she goes!

Kendall's school has one big fundraiser every year, and it's coming up at the end of this month. They do a walk-a-thon, where they walk laps around the school and get their friends and family to sponsor them at a flat rate. It's really a great fund-raiser, as there is no chintzy stuff to buy, nothing to have to deliver, and it's promoting physical exercise!

Last year, Kendall raised the most money in her class, but missed raising the most in her grade level by $7.00. What a bummer. She also walked the most laps of any first grader that day, so she was totally psyched, and ready to do it again! Last Friday, when she came home from school with her fundraising packet, she had a plan and a goal. Her goal is to raise the most money of all the second graders. Her plan is to "train" everyday after school by running laps around our house...she shoots for 20 laps every night. I don't know why she feels the need to "train" for this, she only needs to walk...and believe me, that kid has more than enough energy to walk all darn day! But hey, who am I to stand in the way of exercise??? And besides that, I am just impressed that she wants to run. Because as many of you already know, I don't believe in running unless I am in IMMINENT DANGER. Maybe I could learn a thing or two from my very wise seven year old daughter!!

And then there's my sweet little boy...he has no desire to run either, unless you have chocolate! Here's what he was doing while Kendall was training and I was hanging laundry...

Have a good week, peeps! And GO BUCKS!!!

I think I remember you posting about this fundraiser last year--I have a vague recollection of Kendall walking the most laps of all the 1st graders. Go, Kendall!
