So, the March of Dimes walk was good. My mom’s group had a whole team signed up, something like 12 women to walk. Well, as the day grew nearer, that number dwindled… and it was only me and one other mom there walking. Nice.
But in any event, she was a nice woman, and we had fun walking the 5+ miles that the walk covered. Had the weather been nice I might have taken the kids and walked with them in our double jogging stroller, but the weather was not very nice so I left them home to sleep. Probably a good thing, too. The walk was at 9:00, I was at home by 11:30… and Lane was still sleeping when I got home. I cannot imagine how this child might sleep once she’s a teenager.
Before the event, there were a bunch of speakers welcoming us to the walk, talking about logistics, and whatnot. One will stick with me though – a mom, whose daughter had been born 4 months premature. She described the whole experience, and it was quite moving. It was a good reminder for why we were all there on a chilly, damp morning.
