Well for the most part today is officially the last day of summer for my oldest daughter. She starts back to school tomorrow. She'll be in second grade. It's quite unbelievable that she is old enough to be a second grader. I hope that she'll have a wonderful year full of challenges, learning and new friends.
I had made it through the 3 repeats and had moved on to the second chart. I was finally working out a rhythm and then a 2 year old happened. Oh well. It will be fixed. Hopefully before the Olympics is over so I can say that I at the very least finished.
Fundraising and training has been going well for the Breast Cancer 3 Day walk. I have met my first personal goal of $3,000 which would not have been possible without the help of my family and friends. I'm going to try for $5,000 but if I don't make it, I'll be happy with what we've done. Tuesday through Saturday last week I walked 31 miles. It felt good and I only wish that my body would take a notice of all the working it's done and drop the extra pounds I'm carrying around.
Chris and I will be doing a fundraiser this weekend at the grocery store near my house to try to get her to the $2,200 mark. This is the minimum amount that you have to raise in order to walk. She only has $550 more to go. I think we'll easily be able to reach that by October. I've been training with her since March and I can't imagine going through the walk without her. Failure is not an option. She will walk. We will raise $550 so that she can walk.
