The Walk

I am extremely happy about how wonderful our walk went today! We had a great time and awesome weather. I had been watching the weather report daily for the last 10 days and everyday was the same...50 degrees and rain. I went out and bought rain slickers for the kids and prepared for the worst. This morning when we woke up the first thing I did was peek out the window. You will never believe what I saw. SUN! God truly blessed our walk today.

For those of you that don't know, the March for Babies provides a victory van for the walkers that have a hard time completing the full walk. I am thrilled to say that even though there were 22 children on our team, we did not need to use that van. I have to admit that part of our group (me included) was the last ones to complete the walk but we did it! It was kind of funny because we had the victory van closely following us on the way back. We kept watching it get closer and closer until it was literally pushing us over the finish line! I had a great time but next year I plan to put my children (any myself) through a training program first!

What??? Jimmy even said it..."She blogged ALREADY?" Great job Jen! What a fun walk and a wonderful way to honor Timothy's life today. We had a wonderful time & think it was pretty cool that we were important enough to have a police escort following along behind us :) hee hee!
