Jump Rope for Heart '08

We'll start with a picture from Wednesday. Madeline has soccer practice on Wed. evenings and Sadie and Anna have to go with us and luckily they practice at a school with a great playgroud. I was looking for Sadie and Anna and I found them at the monkey bars. Sadie was holding Anna up so she could "walk" the monkey bars. I walked up to take this picture and I could hear Anna saying "hard! hard!". As in this is hard to do! She had "walked" quite a ways when I snapped this picture.

The next 4 pictures come from Jump Rope for Heart at ACA. I did take pictures of Sadie and Anna, however, my camera wouldn't download them for some reason. Thankfully, my friend, Jessica, sent me these pictures. It tells the story much better than mine because I wasn't actually out there when this happened. Here is Madeline "jumpin' for heart". This picture was taken while she was jumping in the "last person standing" part of the competition.
I happened to be in the hallway while this part of the competition was going on and Jessica runs in and says "Madeline is one of the last two in the last person standing! I'll take pictures!". I was so excited to hear she was one of the last two. This is of the girls encircling her cheering "Madeline, Madeline" as she is waiting for the other person to give out as she stays her course.
YAY! SHE WON!!!!!!! These are the girls giving a group hug after the competition was over. It brought tears to at least one mothers' eyes to see such a show of sportsmanship by the other girls.
Here she is with her medal. She is so proud and so are we all. Even Sadie was proud of her.

She's the one on the left, in case you couldn't tell.

After school, we went to McDonalds. Anna is enjoying some ice cream


Sorry about the change back to the "old" looking blog. I think my blog was "hijacked" by the new background, judging from the complaints I had about not being able to leave comments and the "error on line 54" problem and man, so not worth it for all the problems I was having. So, I'll try again another time to "gussie" up my blog.
Have a great spring break, we'll try to keep you posted on all our goings on.

Lisa, I love your "old look" blog. You don't need the fancy backgrounds to make your blog exciting . . . I always look forward your words and pictures. Ann

I agree with the first comment. Your blog is so great that it doesnt need all the pretty stuff.
