Two weeks til the marathon. This video is a small picture of why I'm raising money for World Vision by running. As a mom, I cannot comprehend not being able to give my little girl clean drinking water. My hearts breaks for the other moms around the world who do not even have that option. As I watered my tomato plants in my backyard the other day, I was struck by the fact that I have clean water that I can drench my plants in. Some people do not even have this water to drink or bathe. Instead of living in guilt or living in the mindset "I can't do anything"- I have decided running the Chicago Marathon for World Vision is one way I can do one small thing to make a difference.

The kiddos were really busy all weekend which equals not as many naps. Trae caught a cat nap right before the wedding. Isn't he cute?
What a great weekend! Congrats, Matt and Nicole! We are praying for a lifetime of joy for you two (and your family.) We love you!

The other night I got together with Liz and Tricia, two of my roomies and closest friends from college. We all have kids within a year of each other so it was fun to see them interact and dance. We laughed as we sat back and realized how much life has changed for all of us since we have been out of college. The dance parties used to be held at 2413 Olive Street, right across from UNI, and they were quite fun also! :)
