She took part in a school-sponsored 10 kilometer run on Thursday...a run which came right past my front porch. I kept my eye out for her...and was there to cheer her on. Not only did she complete the entire run...she was one of the first girls to cross the finish line. I know I couldn't have done that when I was ten years old. She also raised a lot of funds for fresh water in Somalia while she was running. Way to go Spencer!
After school she had no energy left for running across the fields...
...and showed up at my back door on a tractor. Emme was gone...but Mina from next door made for good company as well. She kept busy...and before long the week was over. Today Emme will be back home again!
And on the farm...we have reason to 'jump for joy'. The last of the corn has been planted...almost a month earlier than last year.
Grandpa had the help of a few princess fairies...which really hurried things along! Maggie brought her friend Emma over to Grammy's for a play date last week...but she was really more interested in spending time with Grandpa out in the field. It's all good.
Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian friends!
