Today at the Terry Fox Run...


Well, TODAY was the big day, folks!! Our public school's annual Terry Fox Run. My three girlies and I ran in honour of Whymommy this year, as you can see from the signs we made for our stroller...

Number Two (age 6), Number One (age 11, kneeling down) and
Number Three (age 3). We all wore our hot pink t-shirts!

Child Number Three decided to make her very own sign. She said that the yellow parts are "Whymommy's happy face!"



Our school backs onto a large park. When the starting whistle blew, the entire school population shot towards the trails, which wind around a pond...


Child Number Three decided to walk the whole way...


The weather couldn't have been nicer, and with all the leaves beginning to change colour, the scenery was just beautiful. I carried copies of Whymommy's blog post in my purse,
and handed them out to any parents or teachers who asked questions.We're not yet sure how much money we raised for the Terry Fox Foundation this afternoon, but it was certainly an enjoyable, successful run!!
