Tigerthon!

Aubrey's school held their annual Tigerthon fundraiser on Friday. The weather was perfect this year! The children run/walk laps for 20 minutes and family/friends can donate a dollar amount per lap to raise money for the school(basically, its manual labor:) Ha ha. Anyways, the kids love it. They get Tigerthon T-shirts and every time they run one lap, they get one "mark" on their shirt to keep track of laps. In P.E., they had been "training" for weeks. Aubrey was ready to rock n roll.

Getting ready to race! Aubrey is the one with the blue pants in the middle.
Run Tigers run! Aubrey and her buddy Courtney run side by side.
I did it!
8 laps-oh yeah!

That's a great fund-raiser idea. It gets the kids to use up some energy and the school gains something from all of their hard work.

Good running, Aubrey!

Great running Aubrey. We are so proud of you. I don't think Nana would make it to eight laps. I'm very ashamed to say but at least I can say my granddaughter can do it and do it well. Your smile at the end says it all. Love the music it's perfect. Sending our pledge.
