Running, Running, Running...and then some relaxation, stamping style!

Yesterday was a day filled with running, running, running! Literally, the day started with running in Cincinnati's Race for the Cure. I ran with my friend, Beth. Beth deserves a huge congratulations on completing her first ever 5K! She did a great job and was running in memory of her Aunt Peg who passed away from breast cancer. Then it was on to soccer for Collin. He is absolutely loving playing and can't quite understand why he still has to go to practice sometimes...only wants games!

From soccer, we ran to Jonathon's karate testing. Jonathon was testing for for his green belt. This is the first belt level where there is sparring. Jonathon did a fabulous job! Scoring excellent overall! If anyone in Cincinnati is looking for an activity to boost their child's self confidence and teach excellent values, I'd highly recommend Patten Martial Arts.

Pat then ran Collin back to soccer for pictures.
A couple of hours to a relaxing dinner at Tim and Kara's. The boys had fun playing with their cousins Kate and Will. After dinner, Pat ran Ryan to his fall baseball league. I took the two little guys home and got some time to myself to stamp. Made the card below for Pat's Aunt Jayne. She gets to bring Uncle Chris home from rehab this week. What a wonderful way to celebrate her birthday and Chris's birthday later in the week. So very happy that Chris gets to come home. He has a lot more rehab ahead but is making very steady progress. Thanks to Stampin' 411 for the sketch layout.
