Happy Thursday! Today, we are two days away from the annual 5K run/walk that the gym where I works hosts for a local chapter of Habitat for Humanity/Women Build.
Each year, planning this event gets easier and easier, but each week prior to the race, there is no way around it - I am going here and there and everywhere, trying my best to get things done in time - Did I remember all the sponsors? Did I pick up the ribbons and trophies? Do we have enough volunteers? Are we going to earn enough money for the organization? Are the runners happy? Who's getting the cones? Who's picking up the food? Do we have enough tables? Yada yada yada...you get the picture.
In the end, it works out. The race goes off without a hitch and participants are happy to have contributed to a greater cause. :)
I did, in the midst of the craziness, make time to create something fun for my nephew, Peter. He turns 5 on Halloween and he's getting a treehouse from his mom and dad! How cool is THAT? So, being who I am, I called my sister in law, and laughingly asked her, "Is anyone getting Peter anything to decorate his treehouse?" Of course. Kids think treehouse. I think opportunity to decorate! :)
It was nothing fancy...just a sign that my girls had outgrown. So Connor and I painted it red (Peter's favorite color, which is the reason Connor chose it) and I personalized it. Easy. But I'm so excited to give it to him.
Such a sweet little boy, Peter. I wish him a year of every happiness. Can't wait to see that treehouse.
