More running.....

Kick the Fat 5K - 

The irony of the JUNK they gave away after a race called, "KICK THE FAT" is a true OOG moment..... but moving on....

The kids had fun and prizes and food is what makes them get out of bed to run a 5K at 6am.

Certainly moving to Virginia where races start at 8am will breed the real LOVE TO RUN in my children..... I hope.

(of course, I'm one to talk, since I didn't start running until I was 40)

Here are some snapshots and video footage.

ENJOY!!

Another birthday girl....

This time - she's 9!

Last year's blog.....  (*click here)

The girls' story is,
well -
complex,
and difficult....
and we never thought they would live with us for over a year.

Since an incident last August, they have been a part of our family 24/7.

At the end of the month of March - we will be going to court to ask for guardianship.

Happy Birthday JJ and here's to many more!
