Mother's Day

It was a really nice Mother's Day.  At church, the children all went to the front and sang their own version of "Mama Mia" and all the ladies went home with a rose.  

After church we picked up Zoe and the boys and took them all out for Mother's Day lunch ('cause her hubby had to work).  Lunch was a thank you for a job well done.  This morning, Zoe and her family were up bright and early and headed to Calgary where Zoe ran 5K in the Mother's Day Run. In doing so, she raised over $700 for 4 Paws for Ability!  What a trooper!!  

Once all the money from the past two weeks is submitted, I think we are just under the $5,000CDN mark.   I don't think that's too bad considering we haven't even done an official fund raiser yet!!

The rest of the day was spent just hanging out.  It was nice to have a relaxing day because tomorrow we hit the ground running once again!

Looks like the campaign is going good. Glad you had a good Mother's Day.
I am looking at the picture of Dawsyn and your write up. You could add Dawsyn's Mother is a beautiful fun loving 37 year old girl who faces every day with a smile and energy to burn, speading joy every day whereever she goes.

37 eh? That would make you 53 once again! Shauna turns 37 this year ... I turn 37 with 9 years experience in just 4 weeks. Thanks for the youthful thoughts, though!!

I was tempted to write 47 but thought better of it.

You should have thought better of it!! I'm only gonna be 46.
