Spring Break

Today is the first "official" day of Spring Break for my kids. But, since they weren't in school on Friday, I guess their break started a bit early. They were both in the doctor's office on Thursday with an unexplainable rash that only affected their arms! Thankfully it only lasted 48 hours and they are both better now. Little Emily never contracted the mysterious illness and we are grateful for that. She always seems to get things way worse than the other two when she gets sick.

We have no real plans for this week.  However on Saturday, we will be helping out at the Family Fun Stop for the 65 Roses Tour's Family Fun Ride!!!  This is a cause that we feel so good about helping.  When we met Aven, we immediately fell in love with her personality.  As it turns out my husband and I had been friends with her mother many years ago when we were younger.  As time went by, we lost contact with her and through God's grace, we were reunited again when we discovered that her sister-in-law has become one of our good friends.  If you have not signed up and you are looking for something to do next Saturday, I would strongly encourage you to do so.  Of course my family will not be riding because we will be passing out cookies and water to the riders as they come in for a rest at the half way point.  But, we will be with you all in spirit!  I am so excited about helping out this year as I know that the tour will be even bigger and better than it was last year.  :) 

To read more about Aven's story, you can click here to read what I had to say about last year's event.  There are links to more resources about Cystic Fibrosis and the story of how the "65 Roses" tour came about.  What a great feeling to have knowing that we are doing our part to help out such a wonderful cause while teaching our children that on Spring Break, you don't have to be acting like a fool on a beach somewhere doing things you will never be able to take back.  But, you can be at home, helping out others in your community who have a great need!
