After five plus years of researching and writing, my husband emailed away the first full draft of his dissertation!!! I'm so proud of him!
That he did it all while working full-time...
and making sure there was always time for us.
Finishing the Marine Corps Marathon!
All my cheerleaders along the way. Michele and Todd. Kari and Tyler. Laura and kids. Jennifer, Mike, and kids. Andy. Brandi. Ashley. MZ and Wills. Paul.... so very thankful!
My husband running all over DC to cheer me on with 3 kids in tow.
Finding them in the crowd around the 16 mile mark.
My "GO Mommy GO" sign.
My parents' enthusiasm as they tracked my run online.
Legs that can run. But not today... today they cannot even go up and down stairs. : )
That glorious finish line.
A time better than I had hoped for!
The Marines that serve. Real heroes. How humbling to let one of them put a medal around my neck.
Experiencing the whole thing with a dear friend from home.
AND my sweet girl is NINE today!!!
Her excitement over her birthday gift (after over a year of fairly persistent asking).
The good gifts HE gives... filled to overflowing.
