Will's school participates holds a St. Jude Trike-a-Thon every year. I was so excited for him to be able to participate in this. St. Jude's is such a wonderful hospital for children struggling to overcome cancer. They have blessed so many lives by never turning away a child who can't afford treatment. And with all of the research they have done they have blessed countless more in the many advances they have made. Will raised $100 thanks to generous friends and family. All of the preschool together raised a little over $3,000! Very impressive when you consider it's just a small group of kids, but what a difference we can make when we all work together.

Will very much enjoyed doing this especially being able to ride his bike. He was zooming! Mrs. Janet was also happy to let Jack participate in the bike riding. He of course loved it. He tried his hardest to keep up with Will. After some encouraging Will slowed down enough to ride around the course a few times with Jack. He was a little reluctant as he just wanted to go as fast as he could, but being the good brother he is he helped Jack to feel included.

Caution: 3 Year Old Ahead

Jack chose to have his party at one of his most favorite places; Rocky River. After changing his mind a gazillion times on what kind of cake/party he would like, he finally chose a digger cake. He had lots of family there to help him celebrate: Nonna, Pa, Uncle Blake, Lauren, Aunt Julee, Natalie, Ceseley, Aunt Keeley, Baylor, Kyndal, Gran Gran, Papi, Uncle James, Kelby, and Kaden. He got lots of new things to play with and some money to boot. I think his only disappointment was not being able to spend the night there. So I promised we'd come back and do that another time.
