Last Friday I attended Cara's first big school field trip. It was a whole day adventure of kids running around, playing non stop and yelling very loudly. We went to a big indoor play gym which at one end of it had a stage with a few instruments on it, one of which was a huge drum. The kids played that damn drum NON STOP the WHOLE TIME. It sounded like there was one little shit disturber standing there just banging the crap out of that drum, not missing a beat knowing that he was driving his mother nuts.
Cara had an OK time. She is VERY shy and is middled by two very outgoing sisters which allows her happily to just be a follower. When we got to the indoor play gym she was lost, not wanting to leave my side but really wanting to go play. She ended up getting the hang of it and had a great time playing with a bunch of different kids but always sure to come back for some reassurance. Which was fine with me!!
By 2:00 we...as in all the parents, were ready to leave and board the bus. I gave Cara her choice where to sit and I'm sure you can guess what she said...the very back of the bus, the very bumpiest part of the bus, the very most uncomfortable part of the bus and the very farthest away from everyone else.

We had two boys sitting directly across from us and their dad in front of them.
We were finally about 10 minutes from the school and getting back to a place that would have some Tylenol when we in the back of the bus felt a huge BUMP, there was no BANG just a Great Big Jolting BUMP.
The bus was at a full stop for what seemed to be 1 minute and BANG a car drove up and hit the back of the bus. She hit the bus so hard that her whole front end was UNDER the bus, as she backed up the whole bus dropped down.

The only problem, 3 days after the accident my neck and shoulder started to hurt and have been in pain ever since. It is finally starting to feel a little bit better.
Now for the RUN:
A little back story: I use to run, I actually liked to run and I liked the way my body looked when I ran. My husband and I met in high school at a cross country meet and he is/was a REALLY great runner. Since the kids and becoming fat, both my husband and I have stopped running and started to get fatter.
So the time is NOW, it is time to RUN and DO... you know why? because we are training for the virtual 5k that is happening over at Mommy's A Runner and Boy, oh Boy is this mommy ever a runner. This blog is written by (starting to bow down in honour) Tara and guess what she is Reyna's sister from Beta Buddies. Yeah talk about amazing family genes!! I want to be part of this family, automatic awesomeness.
So we are signed up, we are running the virtual 5k to raise funds for the JDRF click HERE to get all the info and run with us.
Come on I know you can do it!!
