GOTR Practice 5K

Team BLMS 2015

With just two weeks left in the season, we ran our practice 5K. We worked together with the team at BIS and hosted our 5K at Basehor City Park. The afternoon was perfect! The weather was amazing! We had bubbles, streamers, silly string, lap counters, a water station, poster, healthy snacks, and LOTS of sweet, encouraging fans. SUCCESS!

BLMS coaches...and Gracie :)

Class of 2026

Remingtin found my mortarboard and thought it was pretty cool. Snapped this pic then got sad thinking she'll be wearing one before I know it. #don'tblink

I also found these jewels on my camera roll. Love this kid!

Another function...and a dessert date :)

Eric and I attended a fundraising event for Metropolitan Community College. A fun time with great work friends. We even paused to take an elevator selfie. :)

Afterwards, we joined another couple for dessert and coffee at JJ's on the Plaza. Delicious!!!

Do you have a daughter?

If you answered YES, I have a book you need to read. I randomly discovered this book while searching amazon for my next kindle purchase. (Shhh...don't tell my husband!) Let me just say, it truly is amazing! I could not put it down, I highlighted a ton of quotes, and I plan to re-read it again more slowly to digest all it had to offer. Definitely touched a lot of mommy nerves. :)

10 Ultimate Truths Girls Should Know
By: Kari Kampakis

I started this book while waiting for gymnastics to get over. I literally couldn't put it down! So inspirational. I see so many conversations happening SOON as we read the book together!

"God created you for a purpose, and when you discover His purpose for you, you live your best life possible."

"The happiest, healthiest friendships are based on love - not love for yourself, but love for your friend."

"Life is hard, and when you try going about it alone, it will soon become impossible."

"A true friend wants you to be true to yourself."

Check out this proud lady!!!
She gets to be the "Bar Queen" at her gymnastics studio.

BIS Art Show

One reason (of many!) I love USD#458 Basehor-Linwood is their dedication to keeping ART in the elementary schools. My kids truly enjoy art and I am so proud of their final projects! Jaedin got to display some of her work from this year at the yearly Art Show held at BIS. We enjoyed walking around the school to look at all the creations. So fun to see so many proud artists!
