3 Day Walk

Most of you probably already know this, but in August, my sister and I will be participating in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure. Over the course of 3 days we will be walking 60 miles. You may be asking "why in the world would we do something like that?" Well, for me, I have been working in the hospital for the last 3 1/2 years where I've seen so many women fight day after day for their lives. Some of those women have fought the fight and won, others have not been so lucky. One thing is the same about anyone I've come across that has to fight this fight. They all have an incredible amount of bravery as they lie in that hospital bed.

There isn't much I can do about fighting breast cancer, but I can walk. I am choosing to walk to raise awareness about the importance of early detection as well as to help raise money to bring about new treatments and hopefully even a cure.

In order to walk, we need to raise a minimum of $2300 each. So, I'm asking you to please support me on this journey that I'm taking. You can go to my personal page to donate:

I'll be doing my best to use our blog to also update you on my fundraising and training.

Life Goes On...

I really do have every intention of trying to keep this blog up to date, however it seems like life just keeps going on. Things have been going well for us. I can't believe that Paige is almost one and Alex is almost four! How is that possible?

Alex these days loves to be on the go, just like always. He is enjoying preschool and seems to be doing better with following directions there. He loves his teachers and is having more and more friends. He loves playing with his baby sister and making her laugh. One of his favorite things lately is to swing in his room. Yes, that's right, in his room! Kent put up a swing under his bed since he has a loft. He loves it! It is the perfect thing for him.

Paige is growing like a weed! She is crawling all over the place and pulling up on anything she can. She of course, loves to laugh at her older brother and we think she's even attempting to say "brother." She is our easy-going little girl. That is, as long as you don't try to take her toys away. She is a cuddly, smiley, and adorable if I do say so. :)

Kent and I are still keeping busy with work, kids and with the worship team.

I'll be doing my best to keep this blog more updated.
