Trike-a-Thon

David's daycare had a Trike-a-Thon last week to raise money for St. Judes Children's Hospital. They have done this since David started going there, but this was the first year that David could participate. I asked him if he wanted to, and he said yes...

really, did I think he would say no to riding his bike?

Nate had to work late that night, so I went to watch. They had blocked off some of the parking lot for the kids to ride back and forth in. Several of David's classmates participated, which made me happy. I didn't want him to be the only young one with the 5 year olds.

Before they started, they went over the rules (don't run over your friends) and said prayer. Miss Brenda blew the whistle and they were off!

Ready to go!
