I love summer and I love little girls giggling:)
I am always looking for an excuse to get together with our great friends here in Indiana. Tobe's birthday was the perfect occasion. What a lucky guy to have all these wonderful people come and celebrate his birthday with him. Look at that smile:)
Tobe's new obsession is puzzles. You have to know Tobe to understand his obsessions:)
Woah!! That's all I have to say about that:)
Jane had her dance recital on Saturday afternoon. Yes-I did get a babysitter for the other 2 which left just Brett and I there to cheer Jane on. I felt a little lonely. Not that I would have expected anyone to come but the mere fact that there was no one else to support her was a little sad. It sure is lonely at times being "so far far away!!"
Jane did a fabulous job. She is a beautiful ballerina even though she's not sure ballet is her thing (I don't blame her..sorry Aunt Dawnie:)
Saturday evening was the "Out Run the Sun" race against melanoma. Most of you know that melanoma is what took my mother's life back in July so this was a race I really wanted to run. Brett agreed to run it with me and I think we are both so glad we did. I am not one to join a cause and certainly cancer is NOT my friend but I felt as though I was a part of the melanoma club.
Before the race they honored those who have survived from melanoma and those who have not. I got to wear a sign "honoring my melanoma hero" and I got to sign a banner with my mom's name on it. They gave the survivors balloons that they released to the sky. I was really emotional. Somedays don't hurt as much as others but there are still those days when the pain and the memories come back.
I am glad we ran this race for my mom.
I miss her everyday!
