I used to laugh when people said that time goes by faster when you are older. It's really not so funny now. I have no idea where the days and months keep going. It just doesn't seem possible that another school year is almost over. And can my little girl be half way through her thirteenth year? Certainly not.
Tessa and the grandchildren ran in their first race today at a fundraiser for the school. There are some advantages to living right downtown, and today we were blessed to be able to just walk the two blocks to the start line. Translated that means that we did not have to get up as early as most of the other participants and race planners. I liked that. Every one of our family members either ran or volunteered. Of course, I volunteered. The main race was 5K, but the kids could choose to run the mile course.

Tessa crossing the finish line. She came in first. I was very excited!
Nate came in second and Ross came in fifth. Not bad for being related to me.
I drive to the mailbox.
She doesn't even look tired, but she was.
Michael ran with Kenzie. She made it the entire way.
The happy girl with her basket of goodies!
Morgan ran the 5K. She said it was her first and last.
