March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

Boosterthon ~ Take III

Like it or lump it, it's likely here to stay {at least for a while longer}.  This is the 6th year my children's elementary school has chosen to use the Boosterethon Fun Run as its primary fundraising effort.  Fundraising is a must in most school settings, and the reality is the Boosterthon gives you a pretty high return for your efforts.  Plus there isn't any door to door selling. It was a glorious fall morning ~ the kind when I might call my dad and say it's a good day for a cross-country meet.  

Stephen had fun running his laps... 
Being a sweet friend...
Loving his brother...
Betsy and I stayed for the next group ~ 2nd grade...They're off.
Mary Frances giving a boosterthon worker five
Approaching the check in station ~ so funny the older kids spent more time waiting in line to be marked off than they did running their lap.

If you aren't familiar with the Boosterthon, you can go here or here to learn more.  This year the character theme is Highway USA.  The students were challenged to make good choices:
Choose Leadership
Choose Fitness
Choose Learning
Choose Character
Choose a Good Attitude
We can all benifit from reminding ourselves to make those good choices.
