Family Fun Run

Darlin' Olivia

At the end of the school term the elementary school where my granddaughter Olivia attends holds a traditional and much-loved FAMILY FUN NIGHT.  Students, parents, siblings, teachers, and staff all run an appointed one mile route; everyone is awarded a ribbon and T-shirt upon completion.  I was amazed at how fast the kids ran and how quickly they were finished.  After the run, food, games, and entertainment were enjoyed by all on the school grounds.

  1. Olivia looks wonderfully fit and brimming with beauty and life. Excellent shots and excellent activity! Regarding the fading of gold, Frost was right, Kate, but how important it is to savor the treasure when it is before you.

  7. Running is lots of fun. But only in my dreams. It is like flying that I can do so well in my dreams. If I run, it is a fast shuffle to the bathroom dragging my oxygen behind.
