It wouldn't be Kids' Marathon day without sub-arctic temperatures (okay so it was 38 degrees at the starting time, but here in Alabama we perceive that to feel like more like 8 degrees). This was Jacob's last year to run it (sad face) and Caroline's first. I ran with Caroline (well, it wasn't running so much as sprinting all out for about 40 yards, then walking, then spotting a friend and hugging/accidentally tackling each other, then sprinting again, etc.) They were rewarded at the finish line with blue powerade and a medal. Another one in the books!
I am a Yankee living in the Deep South with my super cool, non-chocolate eating husband David, and my three great kids, Jacob, Elizabeth and Caroline, who don't like anything I cook. They all keep me laughing every day.
