Relay for Life--Prayers are ABOUNDING!!

Last Saturday we participated in the "Relay for Life" cure for cancer walk. Our school had a tent set up for all of our friends who have battled, or are currently battling cancer. We raised money, and our "Early Act" club made bookmarks to hand out to the cancer survivors. Pat was a good sport and did his part--hat and all!
This is the area that our friend Angela set up.

This is my friend and colleague Jennifer Seymour. She is battling breast cancer for the second time. It has spread into her bones and we are praying for God's healing hands and a miracle. She has four kids, and a wonderful husband (check out the shirt!). Jennifer is a k/1 teacher at our school.

Jen's family came to "roll her" around the track.

Jenn, Angela, and me

Christina came to help out too!

The "survivors" have the first lap of the morning. They walk around the sport park and we all cheer for them. It was pretty emotional this year.

Shari is our librarian and friend who battled breast cancer a few years ago.
Lauren, our principal, battled breast cancer twice.

I started a new club this year at our school called "Early Act" it is a community service club off of Rotary. We have done TONS of community service projects this year, and the kids have done an amazing job helping their school, community, and world! They have realized how important it is to GIVE!!!

San G., one of our middle schools, had twp giant ball that the kids could walk in. Jenna had a BLAST with her friends.

The CRAZY teachers

Okay--let me explain--this was for charity. One booth was asking us to give a dollar to walk around the track with a bra on to "Save the Tatas". Yeah--I know

These are Owen's buddies Luke and Freddie and their parents Fred and Sarah

And I had to throw this one in just because! Uncle Jim came to visit us at our yard sale :) and I love this picture.
