On Saturday, September 19th, Kaylin ran in her 1st little race!!! All of us ran in a 5K to give to the kids in the Dominican Republic who don't have any shoes to wear when walking this same distance to get to school! Shoes were donated and all of the proceeds went to these children who are in such need of a pair of shoes!! Kaylin, Savanna, and Blake all ran in the kids 1K race!! It was so cute! Kaylin was SO SO excited...when I first asked her if she wanted to run in the race, she told me, "Mom, I am going to run so fast and win!" Then right before the race all of the kids were doing jumping jacks to warm up. I asked Kaylin if she wanted to join in and she said, "No, I only want to run!" :)
She was running so fast and at the very end she started to walk! She started pointing to her throat and said, "Mom, this is kind of hurting!"
Dax was just along for the ride! He loved wearing the t-shirt and did a little running too!
Kaylin told me that she needs to get a medal when she finishes the race!! (So I brought one from a previous race to give to her when she crossed the finish line!) She did so great and we were SO proud of her!! :)
After, the kids got to play in a bounce house and have their faces painted!!! Such a fun morning for us all!!!
