Watching the girls run always makes me smile. I love the opportunity to do these things together as a family. Autumn has to be talked into a little more than Addy does, but she still gets after it smiling. Addy wants to do the 5ks now, she has decided that the kids races are too easy for her. I love her confidence and wish I could bottle up and sale it.
But I also loved giving the kids the opportunity to volunteer at this race. We have not found enough volunteering opportunities for our kids. The me-me-me attitude runs rampant at times and I know that service is a great way to keep that attitude at bay. But it really comes down to us as parents finding those opportunities for our kids. Something new to add to the list.
