Relay in 1 more day!

Tomorrow's the day!! Put on your walkin' shoes, gather your team and head on down to the high school for a couple of days of fun. Pitch a tent, stay the night. Play games. Buy tickets for Ushio's raffle!!! We're auctioning off a purple Apple iPod Shuffle for part of our fundraiser. So, if you are in need of an iPod, stop on by our campsite and buy a ticket or two. Tickets are $2.00 each.

See ya on the track!

We made it

We have made it through our first year of school!! Mr. Matt completed Kindergarten today and has been promoted to the 1st Grade. He's very excited about that although he won't be in the same class as 2 of his bestest buddies. He will have one of his bestest buds in his class though, so he won't be alone completely. His "girlfriend" will be in his class next year too, so stay tuned for next years tales of love...if there are any by then. :)

Relay for Life in 10 more days!!

I'm getting super excited now. Relay for Life is in 10 days!! I want to encourage anyone and everyone to come see what it's all about. The opening ceremonies start at 6:00pm on June 20. Right after that, the survivors do a lap. There is a luminaria ceremony in which the names are read and the bags are lit and stay lit all night. That starts at 9:00pm. Everyone is invited to take part in the silent auction also. There are tons of stuff to bid on and all proceeds of course go to American Cancer Society. If you haven't donated and would like to, you can go to:

http://events.cancer.org/rflnewbergor

From there you can view a list of teams (click on "view teams" on the right hand side of the screen) and scroll down til you see the team you want to donate to (mine is called Ushio Angels). Once you click on a team name you can either donate to the team itself or a specific member of the team (my name is Christie, I'm the only Christie on the team) :)

I hope to see you there. I'll be with my team near the shot put ring. Look me up, I'll be there all night!!
