Shamrock Shuffle & Upward!

  What a day we have had!  It started off this morning with the Shamrock Shuffle at the High school- they were raising money for Project Grad.  I was asked to be on a team with 2 of my fellow kindergarten teachers.  It was a 4 man race- 1 runs a 10K, 2 run a 5K and 1 walks a mile.  I was the lucky one and got to do the mile walk! :)  This was the first race I have ever been in!  It was fun- all except when I went to the sign in table to get my number they yelled out "Julie, you're 40 right?"   How embarrassing was that?! ha!  Oh first race at 40- I am just beginning to live! :)  Karlee ended up and walked with me while Kassidy, Klaire and Joe cheered from the bleachers! I had my own cheering section!  After it was over, Klaire ran down to see me and as we were walking to the car...she said, "Mommy, eww did a good job!  Are you happy?"  It was so adorable and made the race even more special! :)
   We then went to Kassidy's last Upward game.  She played very well...even with all of her injuries from the fall this week!  She is such a hustler!  Klaire, of course, helped Joe and Paul coach the team.   She loves to be in the middle of it all!  It has been a good basketball season, but I am ready to have my Saturdays back! :)
   We have had a fun Saturday and to top it off- it was in the 70's!  I just LOVE spring!  I am so ready to wear capris, shorts and flip flops all the time! :)  Spring Break is in one week!  Hopefully the weather will be this nice for it- but you never know here in the Ozarks!
