Day Two Hundred Fifty One 2012
Grandson Elijah’s elementary school has one very important fundraiser each year—The Cougar Run. The kids collect pledges for every lap they run/walk (or a flat donation). The school mascot is the cougar, and as we all know, cougars run very fast. The first grade classes were the first up to run this morning. Beautiful blue sky and hot sunshine and no breeze made for some red faces, but Elijah ran most of his laps—15 total. I’m proud of him for his determination and his good job helping to raise money for his school. All the kids were pooped by the time their run was over, but they got to enjoy a picnic lunch later and a relaxed work day, and a lot of them got to leave school early. He chose to leave early (what kid in his right mind wouldn’t?) and hang out at Granny’s house, playing video games, watching TV and eating Bomb Pops. And I love his spiked hair! His mom spiked it for this event. Gives him an edge, don’t you think? Happy TGIF, everyone!
