Cannot BELIEVE that she’s old enough to be going to school.
We don’t post here much anymore, as Eliza is keeping us busier than ever and posting here has taken a backseat. But this was too good to not mention, as seeing Eliza interacting with her great-grandmother was one of the best things I’ve seen all year.
We’re all having a great summer, and Eliza has become a really terrific toddler…it helps that she LOVES vacations. If there’s novelty involved, Eliza is all over it.
This is a shot from our trip to Rock Island State Park here in Tennessee, an awesome trip with our favorite friends and their toddlers.
Not only is the Trike-a-thon an opportunity to give to an awesome charity, it’s also part of a campaign that teaches riding safety. You can sponsor her in any amount, no matter how small.
Eliza participated last year, and was determined to take part, even though at the time she could barely reach the pedals of the trikes. She rode 2 laps last year, which was a huge accomplishment…she still talks about it a year later, and is excited to be doing it again.
Below is a Paypal button connected to my Paypal account. After the Trike-a-Thon this Friday (Apr 29, 2011), I will deposit any money in the account directly to the charity, and I will match the first $50 of donations dollar-for-dollar. Your donation is a flat amount, not a per-lap, and any amount, even $1, is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your generosity, and for helping both Eliza and St. Jude.
Both Betsy and I have been busy beyond all knowing, which only partially explains why we haven’t blogged over here at BNW for awhile. This was a huge week for Eliza…Tuesday was Mardi Gras, and her preschool had a parade for the kids. They got to walk up the street and throw candy and beads and such to the elementary school kids, all in costume and everything. Eliza _loved_ it.
