Preparing for First 5K with a Preschooler

We're preparing for Saturday morning's "Steps 4 Students" 5K as we raise money for St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in the Heights. Little K and I discussed it this morning. Since I didn't think she'd understand what a 5K is, I told her that it's a running/walking/skipping/jumping party for St. Rose School (aka: the big kid school). I'm excited to say that St. Rose School has raised more than $20k so far for this event -- 100 percent of which goes directly to this school. St. Rose is also the top money raiser for this event out of all the schools in the Galveston-Houston archdiocese. Way to go! Wish us luck. A 5k (3 miles) is a long haul for an "almost 3" year old, especially with Mommy & Daddy in tow! HA!

Until the next nap time...
