FAMILY HAPPENINGS: AC was sick most of last week with an upset stomach, he's fine now. KT started volleyball practice on Mon & Wed.
Katy had her first dance on Fri afternoon and I worked the concession stand, it was so much fun! Who knew that jr high kids could be so much fun.
I am now the secretary of the PTA at KT's school.
Sat, Katy and I participated in Jade's walkathon. It was so awesome. I almost didn't think I was gonna make it but I kept telling myself I was doing it for Pruda (my late mother in law) and I finished it. I was pretty much out for the weekend after that though. Emotionally and physically drained.
Sat night I met up with my girlfriends from high school and had a wonderful, fun-filled dinner out.

Sounds like the walkathon went very well. Is the picture below the one below where your say your old Jr. High also part of your old Jr. High? I love the windows.
