Every year Tyler and Lauren's Elementary School hosts a Fun Run as a way to promote exercise and also raise money for the school.
The children ask family members et. al. to sponsor them while they run laps.
Tyler and Lauren ended up running $5.50 laps!!
Go Go Go!
Tyler and the other Pre-K - 2nd graders went first.
Pre-K and K ran on one track but
Tyler ran with the bigger kids (1st & 2nd graders) on the other track.
Piece of cake, I got this!
(He ran 28 laps = $154 for his school)
Next up were the 3rd through 5th Graders.
The 5th Graders had their own track but the 3rd and 4th graders ran together.
Lauren did awesome!!
She ran with a friend of hers (in the black headband) and really seemed to enjoy herself.
She ran her heart out and had a smile on her face the whole time.
(31 laps = $170.50)
Together and with the support of their family they earned about $325 for their school.
Thank you family!
All that running, however, took it's toll on Tyler.
I got a call from the school nurse later that afternoon saying Tyler threw up in the lunch room and I needed to come take him home.
Back home he rested on the sofa.
Other than a sore throat and a low grade fever (99.2) he was just fine all weekend.
It's back to school tomorrow.
