Call me crazy...I'm OK with that.
It's all worth it for a kiss from this guy!
With three weekends to go before the kids race, life is 24/7 Go Far. I spent hours today figuring out how many pieces of Legos I needed to create 84 trophies. I was bleary eyed counting little nubbins on the prototype model and comparing it with the nubbins on the computer, all to be sure I was ordering the correct pieces. It will be a miracle if I ordered all of the approximately 3000 pieces correctly. I often marvel at how Lego manages to get all of the correct pieces in the box without missing one. God must work there. This has been the year of the Lego at Go Far. Because of the tiny lego pieces we use as rewards, the kids at Lyman School have covered nearly 4000 miles so far all on a field above the school. The kids have worn a dirt path into what was once a green field. In the name of good health, there is no end to the crazy get-ups I have donned just to squeeze a couple of extra mile out of kids. I now know that super hero type costumes are truly uncomfortable and are nearly impossible to run in let alone fly. Never could I have imagined that I would dress as a Lego minifigure, Santa, Darth Vader, or Tom Turkey just to get kids to run and be healthy. Michelle Obama, I would like to see you do that!

Michelle Obama is way too self-indulged to dress up as a clown and self depreciate. If she were a real role model, she'd be doing what you are doing for the kids.
