Wednesday, June 26

Relay for Life went really good! I ended up staying up until 5:00am and I walked 16 miles and a quarter! I walked a mile more than last year. This summer has been great so far, we've all been keeping busy. We have a couple camping trips coming up that we're really looking forward to.

I'll Walk for You

Tomorrow there is an event called Relay for Life. I blogged about it last year too, so it might sound familiar. It's where a lot of people gather at a high school track and walk around the track/raise money to find a cure for cancer. This is a poem that I wrote that relates a little bit to this event.

I'll walk for you

The last time we talked
I made a promise to you
I said that I'll walk to find a cure
if it's the last thing I do.
So this year; I'm going to walk
more than I ever have before
I wish you could walk with me though
There's nothing I'd want more.
I remember the last lap we walked together
your hand was in mine
I looked over at you
and everything was fine.
I miss you so much
sometimes I don't know what to do
even though you won't be with me this year
I'll walk for you.

Well, we made it! It's summer!  It went so fast! Next year Nathan (my brother) will be in 7th grade and Emily (my sister) will be in 3rd.
I hope everyone has a great summer and I'll try to update more often now that I have more free time.
