"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

~Girls on the Run pre-run~

Today after school was the pre-run for Girls on the Run. The girls at Jolene's school have worked hard and preparing for the 5k. The coaches had a route all set up for the girls to run after school. I wanted to run with her but I had extra kids for the evening so we set ourselves up in the middle of the route to cheer them on. I was so proud of Jolene she did so well, she tired so hard. Her last lap, she was so exhausted she started to cry. It was the warmest day of the week and it took a lot out of the kids. She got some water and kept going. I was so overwhelmed with pride for her, she does her best and doesn't give up until it's done, and that is what she did. Hot, tired, headache, not feeling well she kept going and she finished the race.
